2007 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
After several American and one Japanese car this is my first European sedan and so far I couldn't be happier. Handling is great city or highway driving. Steering makes parallel parking a breeze. While the acceleration off the line is average, passing on the highway is easy. You won't get the gas mileage of a Civic or Corolla, but the Jetta is not terrible either. I'm getting about 29 mpg on the highway and with all the standard features and quality of the interior, I'll take the Jetta anyday.
Love the design and quality of the interior. Lots of trunk space and the Sirius radio is a pleasure.
Driver seat is a bit stiff. Steering wheel controls for the audio would have been nice.
