2007 Jetta Wolfsburg 5-speed
By Larry on
2007 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg Edition 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 5M)
This car has excellent fit and finish with upscale materials. The poor man's BMW is back with Class. Our other car is a Chrysler 300 and the Jetta has a smoother, quieter ride. We went with the 5-speed for the sports sedan fun, but the auto transmission with sports shift was a strong contender. The exterior styling is a little bland, our neighbor thought it was a Corolla and it reminds me of an old Altima. It has a smooth shift, but the quiet engine makes it easy to stall. Ironic huh? The multi-adjustable console/armrest is great. So far I would choose this car all over again.
The color combo...black with beige leatherette is very stunning. The seats are very comfortable, they hold you in place with good lumbar support. The great crash test ratings a plus in the Jetta. This car has solid road handling and pulls you through the curves. It has a great rear view mirror. The interior red/blue instrument lights are easy to see.
A 6 disc dash CD and steering wheel controls should be standard. The Wolfsburg Edition needs the 2.0T as the base engine. The trunk needs a pull handle to close. A compass would be useful, the outdoor temp reading is not. The owner's manual has poor translations. This car is a rainy night tire change a nightmare, it has too many parts and tools.
