Little did I expect myself to write about my Jetta again. It’s been three years since my last review. Though the initial passion about the car has become somewhat mellowed, the car has grown in me. It’s my daily partner in work and leisure.

My last car lasted for five years...

I guess the 1st impression among all who test drove is almost the same, huh? "The ride is quiet and comfy with nice damping..."
So I add the following: Seats are quite comfortable too :-)
Now for the drive: The acceleration is reasonably linear as compared to the lethargic M...

Celebrated my Jetta’s first birthday recently, no cake but taken a nice Sunday morning drive to the airport for breakfast. Having clocked just over 15000km, my car is considered a relatively low-mileage used vehicle. It could fetch me some good $ if I were to sell it in the cu...

edlaz Happy 1st birthday to your Jetta! And thanks for the detailed review. I realised you've been logging reviews on your car for the past year. It's impressive and touching to see someone so passionate...

swordsman Thanks, edlaz! I hope to write a review on every anniversary of my Jetta as I thought it would give a more complete picture about the quality of the car and be useful to other car users. That's my ...

edlaz Yeah that's like getting the car as a long termer. It'd definitely be informative to know how the car performs as it goes about with daily chores. Hahas, I suppose it's a good thing if you run out ...

This is when the Jetta’s huge boot is most useful.

Took my family (of 5) on a road trip to Malacca over the weekend with load-full of luggage – the boot just gobbled up everything without breaking sweat! Tired? Put down the rear seat backrest and one could lie down in the b...

Evan Hi Swordsman, glad to read that you are very happy with your car! About the stomping - change gear kick down delay, seems to be a habit most of auto cars and the VW Tiguan I drove recently exhibit ...

joseph22 Eber, am i right to say that for DSG. when we use in Semi-Manual mode, the Down gear will have teh same respond as a manual transmission? cause i always have the thought that in up gear, GSG is goo...
4 Sep 2009
Evan The subject is a tricky one. DSG to my knowledge attempts to predict the next gear shift based on some parameters like acceleration speed. If the prediction is "wrong", there is a delay penalty, bu...

Amidst busy launches of new VW models in SGP (Passat CC, Golf VI, Scirocco) in the last half year or so, the introduction of the 2009 Jetta TSI in April was relatively muted in the media. Given that not much has changed in the car from 1yr ago, I probably understood why it was...

joseph22 So how? any latest update?

terceltan Hi Joseph,

the FC reading hover around 8 and 7.9. Have been driving more normally instead of the girly driving style.

Considering that I am mostly on the highway, I think this is as good as i...

joseph22 I think it is also due to the inflated couse of Honda and Toyota. with their selling cost at such a high price. most ppl will go for Conti.
3 Sep 2009
swordsman Prices of Jetta and Civic are on par now, and to Toyota it's somewhere between Altis and Camry. So Jetta certainly makes a good competition, but IMO still some way to go against the 2 establishment...

terceltan Thanks Sword. Will switch over to that forum.
