Fun To Drive, Feature Loaded

2005 Volkswagen Jetta New 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
Having owned the New Jetta for a month now, I've had time to learn all the little features packed into this car. I am really impressed with acceleration. Pressing your foot on the gas the car accelerates from 0 to 40 in a heartbeat. Road grip is amazing (as is overall handling). The care easily handles double the speed limit around curves without body roll or protestation from the tires (ie. a local interchange between two highways has a 25 mph limit and the Jetta easily handles it at 50.) Lots of little convenience features have you discovering something new for weeks. I'd be surprised if a sales rep covered 25% of them.
Handling. 6spd transmission w/electronic manual shifting. Near - silent ride even at 75mph. Too many little convenience features to mention!
Width of legroom and seat. The center console is very wide and areas of the seat sit level, or even below the hard plastic side supports... can become a little uncomfortable for some people.
