2005 Volkswagen Jetta Wagon GLS 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have loved my Jetta until today. All of sudden, I was stuck in the middle of the road because my car would not go into gear (manual transmission). I have read many complaints on the National Highway and Safety website of other owners complaining of the same problem and VW who will not take responsibility. My warranty was up less than 1000 miles ago. My car has only been driven 50,000 miles. I should not be having problems with it so soon. It is costly to fix and I am very upset. I had planned on upgrading to a Passat in 2 years because I was so happy with the Jetta, but I don't think I will.


Best Features

heated seats, good sound system and good gas mileage


Worst Features

A reliable car that won't have major problems like the transmission or clutch breaking. A better warranty.

Review

Gobs of fun to drive! 40+ MPG. Holds a bunch of stuff. Very good fit & finish. Too soon to tell much about reliability... Only problem so far, I look down at the speedo, Hell! I'm doing 80 again... Really smooth, quiet for a Diesel.


Best Features

TDI engine! fuel economy. Great looks.


Worst Features

Controls for the wipers is not intuitive. Takes a bit to get used to.
