Great car, saved my life
By bludvigsen on
Vehicle
2006 Volkswagen Jetta Value Edition PZEV 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 5M)
Review
This car saved my life from being broadsided at 40 mph by a much heavier car, so the structural build quality and safety features (b-pillar, side curtain airbags, engine cut-off, etc.) are impressive. Great engine/drivetrain with enough torque to beat most cars off the line and pass on the highway while doing 80+ MPH without downshifting from 5th. That's with the 5-cyl motor and 5-spd manual Interior very well designed with high quality materials, switches, seats, etc. Very comfortable, firm seats felt great after 10 hour trips. Reliability was great for the 69K miles I owned it. No problems, only sched. maint. & oil changes.
Favorite Features
Ergonomics, safety, European road manners, low maintenance costs.
Suggested Improvements
Only gripe was peeling black plastic on switches and headliner coming loose due to Southern heat/humidity - common in VW/Audi.
