2005 Volkswagen Jetta GLI 1.8T 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
Review
Great car with many extras for not much money! Lowered suspension, 18" BBS rims, high performance tires, Recaro seats, 1.8 Turbo, Tiptronic auto, Monsoon sound system, great styling! This car gets looks and comments wherever I go (Lagoon Blue) and costs about 9K less than a BMW 3 series sedan. One thing is that it takes premium fuel, and gas mileage isn't that great around town, averaging about 18 mpg. That can get expensive fast with the price of gas.
Favorite Features
I love the handling and especially like the tiptronic automatic. Just put it in drive for around town, or select the tiptronic and shift on your own... the best of both worlds! Turbo is pretty peppy too!
Suggested Improvements
My biggest beef is with the Recaro seats. I'm not that large of a guy, but the side bolsters on the seat still dig into my outer thighs which is annoying on short trips and downright painful on longer ones. Also, the front air dam is a little too low and hits large speedbumps or steep driveways.
