Forte K3 1.6 (A) vs Corolla Altis 1.6 (A) vs Jetta 1.4 (A)
We find out if the Corolla Altis still holds the fort in the mid-sized family sedan segment by pitting it against its closest rivals.

The Volkswagen Jetta was facelifted on May 2015.

Most Unreliable car ever owned `
Volkswagen Jetta is definitely one of the most unreliable cars in the market as mentioned by others. Spark cable issue, Engine failure, Car key problems, Jerking as gear changes, wiper makes very loud sound even after changing. The service centre is equally bad. After servicing, engine failure within a week. No replacement cars on hand and even ask you to pay rent for replacement cars. The service centre is filled with mostly jetta with engine/gear problems. Avoid at all costs. Can never understand why they will fail to improve after the recurring problems from customer's worldwide.

Cat A - Most powerful Car `
I'm the ex-owner of toyota Corolla, toyota Vios and toyota wish. Toyota really a good car and never give me any problem at all for many years. After driving jap car for so many years, I decided to try out Conti brand. Jetta is really value for money as it is a very powerful car compared to my japs car that I owned. The quality is far better than japs car with good sound insulation and powerful. This is really a fun car to drive at high speed with turbo kick in. However, at very low speed, example in the carpark, non turbo car will have a finer control. 6 months and Clocked almost 10K mileage without any issue so far and enjoy the fun drive everyday. Will upgrade to Passat if got $$$$

Solid TSI engine combining with 7-speed DSG Gearbox `
I have the same query as other about the reliability of the DSG Gearbox but was told by my brother who owns a Passat to give Jetta a try. Have been driving Toyoto, Mazda, Honda the last 20 years and the latest was Honda Odyssey (7 years). Complete different test drive experience compared to my experience with Japanese. Have been driving Jetta for 19 months. Love it. No problem so far. Likes to play with the Sport and Manual mode under different driving condition on the road. This cars come with solid safety rating. Drove in NSH cruising 160-170km all the way from JB to Melaka, very stable and don't feel that I am speeding.. There was a pouring rain and I was at traffic light junction. As I was rushing for time, so very heavy footed on accelerator. The car ramped over big trapped wafer when I started to accelerate. There was a alarm and I notice that the Traction control icon light-up. Big splash of water as I drove through but the car moved super steady... Couldn't image if this car did not come with all the 5 road safety features (ABS, ESP, EDB,...). The DSG GB is super smooth. That's build upon a complex system to deliver that smoothness and performance. Lots of talk about DSG GB might go down, but I am willing to set aside few thousands after the warranty is over.. Only problem I have so far is at lower RPM (1000-1500). DSG shift gearbox up quicker, but shift down slower, probably for FC purpose. I will either switch to manual mode or heavy on gas paddle to overcome it...

One of the most powerful cars in its class! `
Bought the jetta sportline. Having some reluctant at first due to the infamous gearbox. After some research, seems this issue was resolved. Those complaining are mostly the older batches. This car has put many other cars at the same range to shame. Seems like VW is pushing very hard to regain it popularity.
