#210 of 245 VW buyers beware
Nov 25, 2007 (4:44 pm)
Here it is in a nutshell. Owned a 2002 Jetta and 2003 Passat. Engine coils replaced on both (twice on the Passat). Jetta drove like a dream, but had so many issues, got rid of it. Passat leaked after heavy rain, either through the pollen filter or the sunroof (no one knows) and took out the computer. Repair=$2500. FIVE Passats at the shop with the same problem (research this issue on the web...it's shocking). Just traded it for a beautiful 2008 Accord EX-L V6. Whatever you do...don't buy a VW!

Please share a full post with us; what you have is pretty useless without any background information (or any information at all).

Sorry...I'm new to posting. This was supposed to be a reply to a question about how much I paid for my Accord EX-L V6.

#217 of 245 Jetta or Accord?
Feb 08, 2008 (8:24 am)
Okay, is it crazy for me to compare the 08 Accord vs the Jetta?
With the Accord prices, and the Jetta prices, I can get a sportier, loaded jetta for less than the Accord. I have been looking at both leases, and they are quite similar, but now I am not sure on which one to pick. My sister says, hey try other brands, have fun with leasing, but I can't pull myself away from the accord. Plus, who knows when they'll have better incentives, I am not in a rush to lease another car, but need to think about it since my mileage on my current lease is almost up.
The Accord is rated really high, great value, but the jetta has alot going for it too.
My sister said to test drive both, and get a feel on both.

Not crazy! The Accord is a LOT bigger (interior and exterior) - so keep that in mind. I think you would find that the Accord, although perhaps a little more money, is a better "value." But, value isn't everything. The Jettas are fun to drive and look great! Although, I have to say, the 08 Accords are fun to drive too -- they feel a lot more like a Jetta these days . If your thinking re-sale at all, I might stick to the Accord -- probably a much safer bet in that regard . . .

VWs generally have good resale value. Comparing Jetta and Accord depreciation is about the same, if edmunds numbers are to be believed. In the "true cost to own" feature, Jetta 5 year depreciation is estimated to be $11,734 and Accord's is $11,199. Both lose about 50% of average purchase price over 4 years.
