2005 Volkswagen Jetta New 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 5M)
I have owned VW's for the past 36 years (Bug, Rabbit, Jetta, Passats, 11 all told) and the NEW 2.5l, 5 cyclinder is the most fun yet. Had the GLX-Jetta five years previously and the 2.5 has many more accutrements and handles better.
7 inches longer than the previous Jetta and 2" increase in wheel base really makes a difference in the ride; smoother, yet still responsive German engineering.
Have had the car one week only and can make no criticisms at this point. I would definitely take a test ride.
