2007 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan Wolfsburg Edition 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)


Review

Bought this car when I retired. Overall nice car for it's class. Enjoy driving. The 30m oil change & service was about $300. Wife's Volvo was about same cost. Dealer note on bill, "needed to have rear brake job done est $300 to $350. I've owned many cars in my life,never remember having a brake job on any. Not happy with this.


Best Features

Looks- inside and out. This W/addition has lots of extra features for a good cost compared others of same class


Worst Features

Apparently better rear brakes.

2007 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)


Review

I have leased this Jetta and I think it is a great-looking car and fun to drive...when it isn't snowing or wet. I'm not sure what the issue is. I've driven in NE snow/weather for 20yrs and this is THE WORST car I have had for snow. If there is some magic button I need to press, I wish someone would let me know. The dealer here is terrible...it takes forever to get an oil change. My trunk lift broke 4mos after getting the car, and the dealer had the nerve to ask "what did you do to it?" Like I took a bat to it or something. They weren't going to repair the foot long scratch to the paint on the inside of the lid because "it didn't show". I'm not sure if I would get a VW again.


Best Features

Looks.

Review

My 2007 Jetta at 27000 miles had to have rear pads replaced and rotors turned. Dealer says this is normal for this car. Cost of repair was 270 dollars. I see nothing normal about this. Seems very premature for brake job and very expensive.

Review

I have driven my 2007 Jetta with 5 sp manual for 42K miles without any issues. It get's serviced at my VW dealer only at the required intervals. I follow the dealer service recommendations. I love this car. I have it detailed every 4 months. I drive between NY and Pittsburgh every 4 to 6 weeks and love the comfort and reliability this car has provided me. This is my 3rd VW having had a 2000 Passat, and a 2003 Jetta TDI. Both I drove over 200K miles.


Best Features

5 speed manual stick, heated seats, highway handling.


Worst Features

Sunroof wind noise when open, mileage around town, should have 18" wheels rather than 16".

Review

Purchased my Jetta new, it now has 21,000 miles. Haven't had any problems and only had one recall which was not a safety issue and only took a few minutes to fix. Dealer service is always good and quick but can be expensive, although I don't mind paying more for fast service thats done right the first time. Car has been very reliable so far, looking forward to putting a lot of miles on it after it's paid off.


Best Features

5 cyl gives a little more power then most of the Jettas 4 cyl competitors. Very spacious compared to other cars in its class. Smooth on the highway and pretty good in the snow. Materials used inside and out look like quality components. They also don't get dirty fast and are easy to clean.


Worst Features

More interior storage spaces/hidden compartments. Put radio buttons on steering wheel for easy station searching.
