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.
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...
Rear seat leg room, and when you fold
the seats down you have to move your
front seats. Darken the rear 3 windows
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.
Turbo engine, cargo capacity, Monsoon
More substantial cup holders. Wider
moonroof. Higher quality leather.
Tighter assembly of interior.
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.
