2005 Volkswagen Jetta New Value Edition 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 5M)
We bought one of the first New Jettas in 2005 after considering Toyota and Honda, but the interior of the Jetta was far superior. So far the only trouble we've had was a cooling fan that would not stop running and was replaced by the dealer under warranty. There was one surprise: the rear brake pads needed to be replaced at 18,000 miles while the front brake pads looked like new. Beware of the state troopers - the car really comes alive once you pass 80 mph!
The seats, I couldnt find anything close to the Jettas front seats for the money.
