Be Smart, Check in Advance. CARFAX — Your Vehicle History.

CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert

Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.

CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.

Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.

Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles

Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.

Second Hand — Not Second Best

Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.

But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't 100% safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.

CARFAX — 35+ Years of Experience in Vehicle Histories

CARFAX was founded in the US in 1984 and expanded into Europe in 2007. Around 100 team members spread across six European offices process vehicle information from 22 countries.

Fostering strategic partnerships with registration authorities, law enforcement agencies, government departments, insurance companies, inspection centers and numerous other leading companies around the world has enabled us to compile a unique international database for vehicle histories. We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.

We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family. This includes never collecting any personal details — we do not accept any PII from data sources amongst the information we provide about a vehicle. We ensure that data protection laws are observed at all times. Furthermore, we always collect our data in compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks — in all the countries in which we are active. We expressly distance ourselves from illegal activities such as data theft, scraping and hacking.

Volkswagen Jetta Expert Review

Stefan Ogbac


  • Excellent driving dynamics
  • Spacious cabin
  • Excellent fuel economy on hybrid and diesel models


  • Weak base engine
  • Hybrid only available as an expensive SEL Premium variant
  • Conservative exterior design
  • Toyota Corolla
  • Honda Civic
  • Mazda3
  • Kia Forte
  • Ford Focus

The refreshed 2015 Volkswagen Jetta has slightly revised exterior styling and improved aerodynamics, Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert, Park Distance Control, and updated interior with chrome accents surrounding the gauges and redesigned air vent controls. GLI models are now equipped with sport seats while the hybrid now has a different instrument cluster. A new turbodiesel I-4 engine replaces the old unit and improves the car's fuel economy. The Sport trim is new for the 2015 model year and comes standard with navigation, rearview camera, sport suspension, sport seats, fog lights, 17-inch wheels and VW Car-Net connected features.

The 2015 Volkswagen Jetta is a compact sedan sold in six trims and five engine choices. It is available with diesel and hybrid powertrains, as well as a performance-oriented GLI variant.

Five four-cylinder engines are available with the 2015 Volkswagen Jetta including a diesel and hybrid engine.

Model: Jetta S
Engine and Transmission: 2.0-liter I-4 - five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission
Power: 115 hp/125 lb-ft of torque
EPA-Rated Fuel Economy: 25/34 mpg city/highway (manual), 23/34 mpg (automatic)

Model: Jetta SE, Jetta Sport and Jetta SEL
Engine and Transmission: Turbocharged 1.8-liter I-4 - five-speed manual or six-speed automatic
Power: 170 hp/184 lb-ft
EPA-Rated Fuel Economy: 25/37 mpg

Model: Jetta TDI
Engine: Turbocharged 2.0-liter diesel I-4 - six-speed manual or six-speed dual-clutch automatic
Power: 150 hp/236 lb-ft
EPA-Rated Fuel Economy: 31/46 mpg (manual), 31/45 mpg (dual-clutch automatic)

Model: Jetta GLI
Engine: Turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 - six-speed manual or six-speed dual-clutch automatic
Power: 210 hp/207 lb-ft
EPA-Rated Fuel Economy 23/33 mpg (manual), 24/32 mpg (dual-clutch automatic)

Model: Jetta Hybrid
Engine: Turbocharged 1.4-liter hybrid I-4 - seven-speed dual-clutch automatic
Power: 170 hp/184 lb-ft
EPA-Rated Fuel Economy: 42/48 mpg

Performance is excellent in all Jettas except for cars equipped with the base 2.0-liter I-4, which have the least power and requires the driver to "keep the car in the lower gears" to "squeeze out additional torque to pull the car." The other powertrains, particularly the GLI with its turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4, provide great acceleration and handling thanks to its well-tuned chassis. Diesel and hybrid variants, on the other hand, have excellent fuel economy without sacrificing drivability and engaging driving dynamics.

Space inside the 2015 Jetta is generous for a compact sedan with plenty of room for four passengers, a large 15.5 cubic-foot trunk, and 60/40-split folding rear seats. Build quality is excellent with a cabin that's "comfortable, usable, and well-put together," making it feel more upscale and ideal for long road trips. While its interior design and dash are conservatively designed, the 2015 Jetta's controls for the infotainment system are easy to use, intuitive, and functional.
The 2015 Volkswagen Jetta has a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars) and is considered a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS, earning a Good score in five testing categories (Good is the highest possible score).

UPDATE: Higher trim levels of the 2015 Jetta are available with the Driver Assistance Package, which adds blind spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, and forward collision warning.

Except for the base engine, the 2015 Volkswagen Jetta is a competitive compact sedan that has something for everyone including a hybrid and diesel variant. Performance is a strong suit with the car delivering brisk acceleration and sporty handling with a well-tuned chassis that make it "fun and genuinely entertaining" to drive.

In a 2013/2014 Comparison Test of hybrid and diesel sedans, we said that the Jetta Hybrid and diesel had the best balance of driving dynamics, fuel economy, and comfort thanks to its "appropriately weighted steering, reassuring chassis compliance, and sharp chassis reflexes." This doesn't come at the cost of refinement because the car's cabin remains a pleasant and quiet, making it an excellent all-around car. Interior build quality is another strong point with a well-built cabin that feels upscale due to high-grade materials.

Rowing through the gears of a 2015 Volkswagen Jetta S TDI’s six-speed manual transmission as we roll along the scenic two-laners of Virginia’s horse country, we marvel at the fact that we’re actually having fun. Yeah, fun. In a Jetta.

Never would we have predicted this back when VW first introduced the current Jetta for the 2011 model year. While it boasted increased space, son-of-Audi styling, and a more competitive price, the Jetta was soundly criticized for its utter dearth of character, relentlessly cheap-feeling cabin, gruff five-cylinder base engine, and chassis that had regressed into the Dark Ages with rear drum brakes and a torsion-beam rear suspension.

Since then, VW has made incremental and significant improvements to its North American bread-butterer, and by 2014, all U.S.-market Jettas featured four-wheel disc brakes and an independent rear suspension. Also for 2014, a new EA888 1.8-liter turbocharged base four-cylinder engine forced the cantankerous 2.5-liter five-cylinder into retirement. Enter the 2015 Jetta, with its midcycle update that brings new front and rear styling, upgraded interior materials (including—at last—a soft-touch dash top), and a new EA288 diesel engine in TDI models. Alas, it seems that the Jetta has now become the car Volkswagen should have been building since the beginning.

Typically, the most significant aspects of a vehicle’s midcycle refresh are revised lighting and fascia elements, but in the 2015 Jetta’s case, these are arguably the least interesting of its updates. A new grille emphasizes the car’s width, as does the new rear bumper, while new headlamps offer more widely available LED daytime running lights and the taillamps evoke its Audi-brand cousins. And for the first time, even the least expensive Jetta rides on aluminum wheels. To what extent the revisions improve the Jetta’s looks is up to the observer, but arguably it has become ever harder to tell the difference between the Jetta and the one-size-up Passat.

The interior, once one of the Jetta’s worst attributes, has become a convincingly nice place to spend time for 2015. It’s still Teutonically austere and the door panels are hard plastic, but the dashboard looks far classier, dressed as it is with tunneled gauges and reflective piano-black trim panels. High-end content such as navigation has trickled down from higher trims to low- and mid-grade levels, and interestingly, an available touch-screen infotainment system without navigation is actually larger than that of the navigation-equipped cars. And the seats of the S, SE, and SEL models we drove were firm and supportive.

The first thing we noticed out on the road is the Jetta’s rock-solid structure. Considerable changes were made to the structure, primarily to help the car pass new crash tests, and the results are palpable. Even with the diesel S model’s modest 16-inch wheels, the Jetta has confident handling, tidy body control, and heroically low noise levels. The steering actually communicates a measure of road feel to the driver—not a lot, but some—and is quick and linear in its response. In other words, the Jetta feels German. As it should.

VW did not provide us with one of its new price-leader base 2015 Jettas with the wimpy 115-hp eight-valve naturally aspirated 2.0-liter four-banger, a version probably best left to rental-car fleets. Our time was divided evenly among an SE model (with the silky 1.8-liter EA888 four-cylinder paired with VW’s six-speed automatic transmission) and S and SEL models (both with VW’s fabulous new EA288 diesel, one with the six-speed manual and the other with a six-speed dual-clutch automatic). As we said in our initial review of a 2014 Jetta 1.8, the turbo four-cylinder gas engine is a honey. It’s EPA-rated at 25 mpg in the city and 37 on the highway, regardless of whether you choose the five-speed manual or the six-speed automatic transmission.

The new diesel idles with a creamy smoothness and revs with enthusiasm all the way up to redline with so little attendant noise that we found ourselves checking the tachometer to confirm that we were actually driving the diesel. Producing 150 horsepower from 3500 to 4000 rpm and 236 lb-ft of torque from 1750 to 3000 rpm, it is down just 20 horses on the gas engine but boasts 52 lb-ft more twist. Redesigned in nearly every respect compared with the diesel it replaces, with an intercooler integrated right into the intake manifold, the engine has grunt all over the place and reduces turbo lag to virtual irrelevance, delivering its power with that intensely satisfying shove-in-the-back feeling we love so much with oil-burners. The six-cog manual shifts cleanly and easily, but the available six-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic is a particularly eager partner in play, making self-shifting all but unnecessary in its intuitive Sport mode. The fact that the diesel nets impressive EPA fuel-economy estimates (31 mpg city/45 mpg highway for the DSG; 31/46 with the manual) is very sweet icing on the cake.

Pricewise, the gas-fired versions of the Jetta start at $17,035 for the aforementioned, special-order stripper model, with the 1.8 SE model beginning at $19,815 and rising to $26,200 for a Jetta 1.8 SEL. TDI models start at $22,460 for the TDI S manual and rise to $28,330 for the SEL with the six-speed dual-clutch auto. GLI and Hybrid models will be added early next year as late 2015 models. The real coup for the Jetta remains a couple of years away when it is scheduled to jump onto VW’s excellent MQB platform. But in the meantime, the Jetta has gone from being one of our least favorite compact cars to taking a very close second place in a five-car comparo behind the effervescent, 10Best-winning Mazda 3. Will the 2015 model’s incremental improvement finally give it the chops to unseat the Mazda in the next go-around? We shall see.
