Lovin' the Base 2.5 model at 65k.
By love2drive5 on
2006 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
I bought this car 3 yrs ago, with 30k miles, I got a great price on it ($12k). it has been great around the city, very responsive. the ASR works! my jetta is a 2.5, automatic and 17" wheels. the seats are not very comfortable for long drives (SF to los angeles). I do recommend to get the sun-roof and heated seats, I wish I did now.
I test drove a 2011 jetta SE, it was beautiful, but it did not have the ASR, or the 17" wheels. it did not handle as well as mine. so I will not be trading it in. I have not had and expensive maintenance thank god. but the car does feel less "peppy" with the age. VW was never known for great high mileage cars, so I would recommend this jetta for city people.
the trip-tronic automatic or manual shifting. and the ASR makes the car handle like it's all wheel drive.
