    VW jetta reviewed by thirteen year old fan

    Jalopnik recently posted a decent review of the VW Jetta TDI that was written by a thirteen year old boy. While It's not as balanced and fair as many professional reviews the kid (for being a fanboy) did a pretty good job

    How can you make a review if you cannot drive?

    I don't think anyone realized that yours truly is a 14-year old boy. My point: age doesn't really matter. There are smart teens out there and dumb adults in the same society.

    BTW, check out my website everyone! It was created and written by a 14-year old boy! <<rolls eyes>>

    not motortrend or C&D (they chug the import kool aid for the most part) but I've always found reviews from automobile and auto weekly magazines to be fair and balanced most of the time

    cool and you are correct unlike what mass media likes to believe there are smart teens out there. I remember in my high school math class I basically taught the whole class (teacher included) how to buy a new car without getting ripped off and filled up a third of the whiteboard with helpful websites. So what if the kid didn't drive the car he can still review on interior quality and comfort
