The Jetta is a great car. The base model doesn't have a ton of power, but it will get out of its own way for sure. The front seats are comfortable for a small car. The back seat is very tight. Kids and small adults fit fine, anyone larger will have a hard time. The automatic trunk release is a nice feature also. The cruise control works great and isn't 'jerky' like some vehicles. There is some road noise when driving but the great monsoon stereo will cover that up. There should be more pockets or storage areas in the Jetta, the cup holders are placed in a weird spot and are not very convenient, but there are 3 in the middle and two more in the glove box (not sure why).
Middle sun visor over the rear view mirror. Comfortable front seat. Huge trunk and fold down flat back seats. Handles great. Air/Heat get to temperature very quickly. Good stock stereo. Auto window controls. Rear head rests. Great gas mileage. Nice looking car. Lock down floor mats down slide.
Cruise control settings are behind the steering wheel so you can't see them from normal sitting position. Cup holders should be more conveniently placed. Seatbelt could be lowered about another inch from over the shoulder. Back seat needs more leg room. Lever vs turn knob for seat back moving.
