2006 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
I bought this car for my oldest girl just before she turned 16. I wanted the safest car on the road and something she could take to college; that would give me piece of mind. Three people have hit this car and no one has been injured. The car weathered the damage very well and was easily restored to like new condition, and still has not had any mechanical/electrical issues. It's a really good first car! I don't like the noise from the air pump when it's first started either, but it's not really a problem, it's just a temporary loud noise.
The style,power,sportiness,leather seating,stereo and above all SAFETY!
Some of the rubberized interior pieces should just be plain plastic. The rubberized coating feels good but it gets dirty very easily and wears off or scratches. The following model years went a little plainer on the interior design. Stop the air pump noise.
