I'm buying a car within 2 weeks. Should I go with Honda Accord LX-V6? or VW Jetta 1.8 Turbo? features approx. the same. Jetta reaches it's 180HP at 2000rpm whereas the Accord never actually reach its 240HP (who drive their car at 6500rpm at all time?), I figure the most I'll get from the Accord on my regular route is approximately the same as the Jetta. Will the Jetta have better fuel economy since it's a 1.8L Turbo? oh yeah, and the Jetta have Tiptronic, Accord have its 5-spd Auto. How about the reliability? price of parts? any recalls? etc etc. Please help me. I know NOTHING about cars (other than brochure comparisons). Last but not least, how crampy is the Jetta vs Mazda Protege? (for both front seats and back seats).
