2005 and One-half Is Superb!

2005 Volkswagen Jetta New 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)

Review

This car is an absolute joy to drive! It has that solid, self-assured feel of German automotive engineering that exudes quality and performance. The only reason that I didn't give it all "10s" across the board is that there are cars out there with better performance, design, and comfort...but they cost more than twice as much! Interior features, fit and finish is outstanding. Ride and cornering are excellent. Get-up-and-go...it has plenty! The multi-function display, digital climate control, and the premium sound system with XM radio all contribute to a great driving experience. I will be a loyal VW customer after this.

Best Features

Favorite features? All of them! The 2.5 engine and six-speed Tiptronic transmission provide superb acceleration and performance. Heated seats, dual-zone climate control, 10- speaker sound system, leather and wodd grain, multi-function display and computer, XM radio...what's not to like?

Worst Features

I would add just a slight more window tinting and side moldings to help ward off door dents or wandering shopping carts. I also think that door sill guards should come standard, not as an optional install by the service department later on. But this is minor stuff at most. VW got it right!
