2005 Volkswagen Jetta New 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
The price of gas drvoe me to trade in my 2003 4WD Toyota Tundra, which I really liked, on the new Jetta. After a lot of research, I decided that the Jetta was clearly the best value going. There are a few other cars out there with the new Jetta's features, but they cost thousands more. But the real proof came with the buying and the driving. I have never been happier with any car than this one. Superb in every respect, inside and out. If it weren't for the VW symbol on the steering wheel, you would think you were driving a car that you could never afford. Forget the high-priced alternatives like BMW or SAAB...there's no comparison. Now I look for reasons to have to drive somewhere!
Superior quality of the cabin materials. Great handling and pickup. Tiptronic transmission. Excellent 10- speaker stereo with XM radio and 6-CD changer. Styling and lines. Rain sensor wipers. Six-way power front seats (both sides). Multi-function Display. Interior lighting. Everything!
Door sill guards should come standard, installed. Need a side molding along the doors to keep dents away. Just a bit more tint on the windows. Minor things at most and certainly no reasons to not buy this car! Way to go VW!
