Review

8 months and almost 10,000 miles. Great acceleration and handling. Cargo capacity is phenomenal. Lame cupholders. The leather is stiff and feels "vinylly." Monsoon sound is great, but I have speaker wire rattles in at least two speakers. I also have a rattle in the dash, giving concern for long-term durability. Rear knee room is also underwhelming, but adequate for adults on short trips. The Jetta Wagon GLS, 1.8T 5A delivers what it promises - exciting driving and the ability to carry a suprisingly large amount of cargo. Pat K.


Favorite Features

Turbo engine, cargo capacity, Monsoon sound.


Suggested Improvements

More substantial cup holders. Wider moonroof. Higher quality leather. Tighter assembly of interior.

Review

MUCH BETTER THAN HONDA CIVIC!!! I drove a civic, a lancer, a cavalier, and volvo v40, and they dont match up to the jetta. I have had this for almost a year and i have had no problems and i have 48000 MILES!! I drive around 50000 miles a year and i hope to keep it for a while.

Review

This is my second VW. I purchased this after reading reviews. The jetta wagon i have removed the cupholders. I am not sure if this is a .5 year model or what. Anyway, great car to drive, decent gas mileage on the highway, but it is fun with the tiptronic. very smotth ride, but still can feel what is going on, and dosen't "float" like other wagons. i wish i would have been able to get the sport package.


Favorite Features

Tiptronic, ride, clean lines with no huge gaps in metal seams. i am sure i will like the heated seats in the winter in New England...


Suggested Improvements

Rear seat leg room, and when you fold the seats down you have to move your front seats. Darken the rear 3 windows tint.
