2007 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 PZEV 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
The Jetta Wolfsburg was a welcome choice among the many configurations of the Jetta. It has just the right combination of options for the price, and is substantially less expensive than if you put the same option packages on the regular 2.5. The car is adequately responsive in the economy driving mode, but shift into the sport mode and it becomes a MUCH more powerful animal. Living in California, I find the Tiptronic to be especially useful for keeping the RPMs up for easily passing other cars on the many freeway mountain passes. While the last generation body style was more inspired, the current Jetta's lack of exterior edginess is more than made up for with its SUPERIOR interior.
6-speed Tiptronic transmission, heated seats, aux. input for iPod, and interior room and styling.
I'm not impressed with the fuel economy, when going downhill on a curvy road the very large rear view mirror can actually obstruct the road to the point where you have to crane your neck to see the road ahead of you.
