The Seattle Post Intelligncer offers a reader some advice on whether he should buy a new VW Jetta in their weekly Car Talk article. As many of our readers have mentioned before that might not be a good idea. The inquisitive Seattlite also asks if the Chevy Malibu would be a good alternative…I don't really see why. They're two totally different cars. A Mazda 3 makes more sense if you want that VW feel and don't want the roof to leak (as our friends Tom & Ray in rainy Seattle pointed out).
