Great car, saved my life

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.

Best Features

Ergonomics, safety, European road manners, low maintenance costs.

Worst Features

Only gripe was peeling black plastic on switches and headliner coming loose due to Southern heat/humidity - common in VW/Audi.
