#243 of 268 2012 Jetta SE
Aug 25, 2011 (10:37 am)
I drove a 2011 Jetta TDI twice in January and liked it a lot--just decided something else would work better so I bought something else. That being said, we're starting to think about buying a car in the Spring for my daughter who turns 16 next year. I think the Jetta SE is high on our list. We like the way it looks, it has good safety scores and the 3 years of free maintenance is one less thing to worry about. I'll be keeping an eye on this thread to see how they seem to be working out for you all.

I love my 2011 Jetta SE. I got the convenience and roof package. It truly feels much more expensive than it is. The maintenance is nice too! My 08 Jetta SE can cost nearly $100 sometimes to get it all done.
Definitely a great car with great bang for the buck. Great engine, safety and the rear room is nice. I got the white gold with cornsilk. A great color combo!
#245 of 268 2003 jetta not start
Aug 26, 2011 (2:19 pm)
I have 2003 jetta wagon 86,200 miles other day would not start. Can push start it and runs fine. Does not seem like the battery, but there is no starter noise when you try to key start. Any thoughts suggestions help

Sounds like you answered your own question, check out the starter.

If it is an automatic, check the brake-pedal switch and neutral switch. The starter will not enguage if any of the safety-switches are not made.
If it is a manual xmission, check the clutch interlock swith.

#249 of 268 2011 Jetta pulling defect
Oct 04, 2011 (10:37 am)
Currently dealing w same issue in regards to 2011 Jetta pulling to right. After four services regarding same issue, well now vehicle pulls to both the right and left. Feel its a defective unsafe vehicle, hence a possible Lemon. Ugh.

Just wanted to thank you for your instructions on how to get the aux to work on the Jetta. I, too, could not get anywhere by reading the manual, no matter how hard I tried. Very frustrating!!! I googled a couple of times, and then found your letter. I tried it, and it works. Thank you so very much.

White Gold, Tan interior
I have had my Jetta about a year now. 15,500 miles already. I am really enjoying it! I can honestly say that for the money, I chose the right car. The love the engine, I came from an 08 G6 4cyl and this engine is night and day better!! Though similar specs. It is refined, smooth and quick. The car drives well and is composed. The car feels solid. The car has plenty of space. The rear is good for a car seat and family to ride in and not feel cramped. The truck is big too! Love the stereo system! It is clean, and offers many options. I like to stream through blue tooth using my iphone.
The materials used could be better, such as the door handles. But, it still looks good! I guess that is the point right? The dash is fine, you don't touch that. But, the tan interior looks better in my opinion than the black. I still get people asking about my car. They love the color combo.
When I detail the car, it is so easy to clean. The tan seats are easy to wipe clean. Literally looks the same as when I bought it. I never use cleaner or shine on the interior finishes. I have yet to actually wax the car myself, but the dealer did earlier this year and I have a membership at a car wash. The paint still looks shiny and waterproof.
Horns had to be replaced
Stereo screen has went white a couple times in the summer. Hasn't happened in a long time again.
I can honestly say that I can't think of another car I want right now. Other than the GLI, but in this price line, it is a great value. I feel like I drive a higher priced car!!
I am glad to be in a VW.
