2006 Volkswagen Jetta GLI 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I have had this car for 6 months and love it. Interior is much improved from my 03 GTI VR6, the ergonomics are far superior. The turbo engine is strong no matter where you catch it in the RPM band and the six speed is excellent. Features such as the trip computer, auto up/down on all the windows, and ventilated glovebox are all small features that set this car apart from its competitors. This car represents excellent value. Oh did I mention I have logged 34.5 mpg on the highway?
Engine, steering, interior.
Snow performance is horrible (could be the summer/all season tires). Styling is a bit bland on the exterior.
