[YesAuto owner interview] Jetta, this name can be said to be unknown in China. It has been 22 years since it officially entered the country to usher in a new generation. The launch of the new Jetta also means that it has ushered in another spring of its own . So, how does it perform in use? It’s just our editors to evaluate good or bad, maybe everyone feels that it’s not objective enough. Today, we invited three owners of the new Jetta to talk to them about everything from buying a car to using a car, and listen to them. Some experience of using the new Jetta.

● The first owner: Mr. Zhang (Forum ID: 82547047 )

Mr. Zhang is 25 years old this year and has been driving for 2 years. Most of his own car environments are in cities, so when he buys a car, he chooses an automatic transmission model. Mr. Zhang’s Jetta was purchased in May of this year and has traveled more than 2,400 kilometers so far.

● About buying a car

Before buying a car, Mr. Zhang has always focused on the three models of Sagitar, Bora and Angkola. In fact, he himself likes the Angkola very much. Not only does he have the SUV shape, but the configuration performance is also satisfactory. While he was watching the car, Angkola didn't have any discounts, and the price exceeded his budget for buying the car, so he had no choice but to give up. The situation of Sagitar and Angkola is basically the same, but the higher price makes him finally give up the choice. From the perspective of price and configuration, the Bora is a very suitable model, but when he went to buy a car, he learned that the Bora did not have a car, and the waiting time was very long, and eventually he had to switch to other models.

The reason for choosing Jetta in the end is that the Volkswagen brand is deeply rooted in the hearts of the people, and Jetta, as a model that has been in the domestic compact car market for many years, also has a large consumer group. Therefore, in the process of car selection, Jetta also entered Mr. Zhang's car purchase. Among the options. The shape design of Jetta is Mr. Zhang's favorite. After in-depth understanding, the EA211 engine it carries is technically a great improvement over the previous old Jetta, and there is a certain discount in the price when buying the car, and the white that I like is also The car can be reached within only a week, so I finally chose this candy white Jetta 1.6L automatic comfort model.

● About car

◆ What aspects are satisfactory

Mr. Zhang is still very satisfied with the overall performance of the Jetta. Since family members have an old Jetta, it is inevitable that they will compare with it when they come in contact with it. The performance of Jetta has been greatly improved in all aspects from design to use. Space and driving noise are where Mr. Zhang expressed his most satisfaction. In the later period, for the convenience of use, Mr. Zhang changed the multimedia system himself, but the speaker of the car itself did not change, because he felt that the original Jetta speakers worked well and there was no need to replace them.

◆ What is unsatisfactory

The performance of power is what makes Mr. Zhang the most uncomfortable, especially compared with the old Jetta, Jetta's performance in terms of low-speed torque output is really very mediocre. In addition to power, the performance of Jetta is still not humane enough in many details of the design, and it should not be difficult for manufacturers to make some improvements.

◆ Fuel consumption

Mr. Zhang's journey today is from Tongzhou to Zhongguancun. The road conditions are still good, with an average speed of 31km/h and a comprehensive fuel consumption of 6.9L/100km when the air conditioner is turned on throughout the journey. Mr. Zhang said that it takes about 30 minutes to drive 6 kilometers during the rush hour. Coupled with the hot weather and turning on the air conditioner, the overall fuel consumption at this time will be more than 9L.

● Summary:

Mr. Zhang is still very satisfied with Jetta’s overall performance. The space and workmanship are excellent. However, Jetta also has many areas to be improved in the details of the design, such as the design of the central armrest box, which are related to our daily use. They are all closely related. As for power, I can only say that for friends who choose Jetta, there should be no high expectations in this regard. It is not a problem to meet daily use, and the performance of fuel consumption is still good. In the end, Mr. Zhang gave himself 85 for this car. Points, the overall performance is also considered to be an excellent range.

● The second car owner: Mr. Qu (Forum ID: Climbing forward )

Mr. Qu’s Jetta is a 1.6L manual comfort type. It was purchased in June of this year. Since Mr. Qu’s home is far away from his unit and he often goes out on weekends, the vehicle has already driven 2,600 in just over a month. Many kilometers. He has been driving for more than six years, and he is considered an old driver.

● About buying a car

For the purchase of a car, Mr. Qu asked for a model with a naked car price of less than 100,000 yuan. During the selection process, he had seen the Great Wall C50, Peugeot 308 and Hyundai Elantra. Before choosing, Mr. Qu will use the forums of these models to understand the situation in use. For the Great Wall C50, some car owners said that the vehicle has oil leakage and uneven rear tire wear. In addition, it is an independent brand. There are still some concerns about quality. For the Peugeot 308, Mr. Qu personally went to the 4S shop for a test drive. His opinion was that the cooling effect of the air conditioner was not good. He also mentioned that for fat people, the biggest requirement in summer is the cooling effect of the air conditioner. As for abandoning the Elantra, the important reason is that the model is too old and not suitable for you.

In the end, Jetta was chosen. In addition to the price meets the requirements, the shape design I also like it, and the brand. Jetta's reputation in China is still quite high. Consumers also recognize this model very much. After many considerations, they finally chose Jetta. 1.6L manual comfort type. Of course, the reasons for the selection also include good air-conditioning and refrigeration capacity, which is one of Mr. Qu's important requirements for choosing a car.

● About car

◆ What aspects are satisfactory

Mr. Qu is very satisfied with the appearance of the Jetta. The feel of the steering wheel is also outstanding, and he has always praised the cooling capacity of the air-conditioning. In terms of riding space, Mr. Qu usually drives by one person, and occasionally three or four people. For the space performance, he thinks the Jetta's rear row is spacious enough.

◆ What aspects are unsatisfactory

In terms of dissatisfaction, Mr. Qu and the previous Mr. Zhang asked the same questions. One is the power performance of the engine, and the other is the design of the front center armrest. It seems that Jetta’s power and humane design really need to be improved. Some more. In addition to these two problems, Mr. Qu also mentioned that after washing the car or passing through a section of stagnant water, there will be abnormal noises in the rear brake drum, but not every time. I went to the 4S shop to check and found no problems. I had no choice but to endure it. The remote control lock failed during a certain use of the trunk cover. After maintenance, it was found that the internal connection of the trunk lock fell off. He said that the steel plate where the trunk lock was installed was too thin, which caused the central control lock to be not stable enough to work. Therefore, the problem of falling off occurs. For this problem, the 4S shop said that if the problem occurs again, a thicker steel plate will be welded to the position of the trunk lock to ensure that the same problem will not occur again in the future. For such a situation, I think it is the most perfect way for the manufacturer to solve it directly from the factory.

● Fuel consumption

Mr. Qu's place of residence and work are not in the urban area, which means that his daily commuting conditions are much better. Although the distance is not close, serious traffic jams will not occur. In terms of fuel consumption, Mr. Qu said that when the road conditions are good, the air conditioner is basically 6-7L/100km. This result is already very good, and he is very satisfied.

● Summary:

Mr. Qu was very satisfied with the overall performance of Jetta, and finally gave a score of 80 points. He has always praised the air-conditioning and refrigeration capacity. He also mentioned that especially for fat people like himself, the air-conditioning in the car is good in summer. It's really a very comfortable thing. In addition to expressing satisfaction with the space and details of the workmanship, some shortcomings are also mentioned, such as the front center armrest that almost all Jetta owners complain about. In some humanized design and internal structure, Jetta still has a lot of room for improvement.

● The third owner: Ms. Ji (Forum ID: Daisy is Dandan)

Ms. Ji’s Jetta is a 1.6L manual comfort model. It was purchased in April 2013. Now many girls choose automatic transmission. The reason why they choose manual transmission is that Ms. Ji feels that they have spent money to learn manual transmission in driving school. Don't forget, so I gave priority to manual transmission models, and felt that it would be too late to switch to automatic transmission models after I got used to it. Ms. Ji’s Jetta has been used for more than four months and has traveled more than 3,500 kilometers so far.

● About buying a car

In the car selection process, in addition to Jetta, Ms. Ji also watched the Hatchback Carnival, Peugeot 308, Buick Excelle, and New Santana. The reason for giving up on them is that the carnival’s space is too small. That is still not appropriate. The Peugeot 308's power system is too old, and Excelle gave up because of its too old-fashioned appearance. As for the new Santana, she thinks the front face is not good, and there are basically no discounts when buying a car. After layers of selection, Jie Da is the final choice.

In terms of choice, Ms. Ji mostly chose these mature technology brands, which is also one of the important conditions for choosing Jetta. Just like the previous two car owners, they all said that the reason why they choose Jetta is very important because of its well-known name. . In addition to the brand, Ms. Ji was very satisfied with the appearance design of Jetta. In addition, the 4S store she went to was just in the process of choosing a car. The discount was large and the car was available, so she decided to choose Jetta.

● About car

◆ What aspects are satisfactory

For the daily performance of Jetta, Ms. Ji is still quite satisfied, especially for girls, whether the steering wheel is light enough and the gearbox is good or not are very important points. In these aspects, Jetta has performed quite well. The performance in the riding space and storage space satisfies daily households and can also be easily faced.

◆ What aspects are unsatisfactory

Regarding the areas that Ms. Ji is dissatisfied with, I think it can be improved, such as adding damping to the glove box, and using leather materials for the central armrests and door interior panels that are often encountered. For many details, Jetta still has a lot of room for improvement. I hope manufacturers can improve on the feedback given by consumers.

● Fuel consumption

Ms. Ji described that the road conditions on her daily commute are relatively congested, and the average speed is only 15-20km/h. At this time, the comprehensive fuel consumption of turning on the air conditioner can basically be controlled at about 7L/100km. The economic performance is still impressive. Very satisfied. However, the power performance is very mediocre. The start is relatively fleshy, and the power is obviously insufficient. This is basically the same as the situation reported by the two previous owners. It seems that the low-speed torque of the Jetta EA211 engine is really average, and of course it is the same as before. Jetta's low-torque and excellent engine is even wider than that.

● Summary:

Ms. Ji likes the dark and light colors on the interior of the Jetta. However, the disadvantage of such a color scheme is that it is not stain-resistant enough, and the materials used by the Jetta in terms of surface materials need to be improved. Although there are some details in the use that are not satisfactory, but as a basic requirement of a family car, it still meets Ms. Ji's requirements. In the end Ms. Ji gave Jetta a score of 85. It seems that in its mind, Jetta can achieve excellence. Level up.

● Summary:

Today’s three car owners choose Jetta. The same thing is that they all have considerable recognition of this brand and model. This is also the word-of-mouth effect that Jetta has established over the years since its listing in China. In addition to its resounding name, A more fashionable appearance is also one of its bright spots. With many bright spots, it has made it into a larger market and attracted more young consumers. Fame is very important for a model, and its final performance is more important than fame. Through communication with today’s three car owners, Jetta’s performance has been recognized by them, and I believe that some deficiencies in the article will be improved. After that, its future market performance should be more optimistic.
