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

Review

Purchased my 2005.5 New Jetta 2.5 in June with 27k miles on it, like new condition. More features than everything else I looked at within this price range - loaded with leather heated seats, auto windows, wipers, and headlights, moonroof, etc. 13k miles later... (I drive a lot, especially visiting home every few weekends from college) This car is very fun to drive. It can be a little hesitant when accelerating, but does better on the Sport mode, though that quickly drains fuel. Runs smoother on mid-grade than regular. Mechanically reliable, but has minor other problems... trunk suddenly stopped locking the first time, window buttons peeling, wipers suddenly wipe for no reason, etc.

Favorite Features

Great value - heated leather seats, moonroof, auto everything, exterior, decent handling.

Suggested Improvements

Better quality. Car runs fine, but small things started going wrong as soon as the factory warranty was up (35k miles). Not really worth fixing out of pocket, but still annoying.
