2007 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 5M)
VW's exterior and interior material are much better than those that are used in most import and domestic autos, but mechanically I think they need to improve. We are currently having issues with oil consumption of 1 quart of 5W-40 synthetic oil ($5-6) every 1,300 miles and a soft brake pedal on cold starts. VW claims that 1 quart per 1,000 miles is normal. I do not agree with this, I think they got this spec. from the VW Bug. The dealer and VW Corp. will not fix these problems. Please, do your homework before you buy any VW.

It has a nice exterior and interior.
Improve the oil consumption issue and give it power brakes that work on cold starts. It should have more power for a vehicle with a 2.5L engine.
