What's not to like about 40+ mpg around town and 55+ mpg on the highway? Seriously, any car after this will be a disappointment. And it's not like the engine is a wheezy rattler. see full Volkswagen Jetta review

2003 4dr Sedan 200-horsepower 2.8L V6

My mileage during the winter was not too good. My daily commute is short, so the car barely gets to full operating temperature. My Civic Si did considerably better around town. see full Volkswagen Jetta review
