2007 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
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.
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.
More interior storage spaces/hidden compartments. Put radio buttons on steering wheel for easy station searching.
