Just trying to gather some information. This kind of snuck up on us out of nowhere, but my wife and I now find ourselves in need of a new (or used) vehicle. We have narrowed it down to two choices: 2007 Jetta sedan (Wolfsburg edition) with 39,000 miles for $13,500 or a brand new Mazda 2 for around $15,400.
The Jetta is (obviously) larger and more accomodating for me (I'm 6'6 but currently own an Element and that suits me fine). The Mazda is an option because it is brand new and only slightly more expensive. It would also be more accomodating for my wife (5'5). And the Mazda is the max that we are looking to pay right now. Thoughts, ideas or theories?

Originally posted by Tenken347Yeah, VWs are notoriously expensive to fix. I also would recommend the Mazda for that reason, although definitely make sure you've driven both cars before you make your choice.
My Grandparents have a VW jetta and it works great, but when it does break...wahooooooooo, it gets expensive really quick.
Funny thing is, those are the very same people who take the EXTRA time to tYpE tHiNgS oUt LiKe ThIs!!! To add to the pile, I vaguely remember the same thing about writing a news story in simple language. Perfectly sound practice if you ask me.
