2006 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)
Really hate to see the car go, but lease is up. With the full premium packages, gives, like other reviewers mention, it a C- class feel, much preferred to Accord for ex. Performance is more than sufficient, rarely leaves me wishing for more, and gets mpg at a solid 27 mpg, great with this hp (390 miles per tank). Handles nicely too, no need for GLI (nicer interior on 2.0T--interior with all the wood-trim options spruces things up), recommend you look for one of these with both prem packages. Love the DSG, great gearbox. Blue illumination is nice, and the trunk is very useful. Overall, never feel like there is anything in other cars that is AWOL here.
DSG, mileage, acceleration, well laid out multifunction steering wheel, HVAC controls, intuitive cruise control stalk, louvered sun-shade to make vent- position a useful setting (more cars should have that). 6CD Stereo sound works for me, and I get AC on BOTH feet and face if I want.
Windshield fluid pump came on by itself permanently (w/o wipers), stalk switch replaced at 26K. A bit of torque steer with pedal to the metal acceleration on slightly damp surface (minor for me). DSG, while great tech box, has rep. for being costly repair if it fails. Get ext. warr.
