2005 Volkswagen Jetta New 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
I bought this car as a family car (2 adults, 2 young kids) to replace our Honda Pilot. I must say I was very leary about getting rid of the bigger Pilot, mainly because of the loss in cabin and trunk space, but I have been pleasantly surprised by the amount of trunk space the Jetta offers, and interior space, especially in the back seat, is sufficient for our needs. The 2005 model offers a lot of "bells and whistles" standard that do not come standard in the 2006 model, and that's the main reason I went with an '05. The interior design and build quality are superb. The car is built like a rock. The ride is nice and sporty, acceleration is decent. Gas mileage is 20 C / 32 H after 700 miles.
The trip computer with instantaneous MPG. Compass. Heated seats. Leatherette seats. 6-Disc CD changer with MP3.
Fix the engine noise. Add an ID3 Tag display on the radio.
