A Mazda3 sport is pretty good value for money, just not my cup of tea were I to actually go and buy one.
I've got a Jetta. Terrible experience with Volkswagen/electrical problems and so on. I think I've paid $15k in various repairs that shouldn't have needed repairing, and dealing with Volkswagen and my extended warranty has been a nightmare. Never again with Volkswagen.
