Need advice

Hey everyone,
I am currently having trouble with deciding on which new car is right for me. I have narrowed down my search to either a 2006/2007 VW jetta or a 2006/2007 Scion TC. The prices for the packages I am looking at are about the same so that is not a factor.
I have heard that the repair prices are higher on the VW and it may be less reliable than the Scion. I wanted to get your input on this before I rule out a car that I really like. Thanks!

Personally I like Jetta, only if its the 1.8 turbo though, the Scion is very nice too very sport, but the Jetta has more finesse and class added to it, plus its got the German engineering, so I would have to say Jetta

There is no 06/07 1.8T, and 2.0T GLi's are way more expensive than any stock Tc if and when they are available. Verdict: drive 'em both and pick for yourself.

My bad I was thinking about the 2.0 turbo, they have the 1.9 TDI and a 2.5

I'd go with the Jetta everytime. Although the Scion isn't sold in the UK so I wouldn't have any experience with them!
