This is not a sexy car, but it offers good service and comfort at a very favorable value. "The People's Car"
The overall value of the Jetta is hard to beat. My new 2007 is my 4th VW and it is good to see that the company finally decided to get back to it's core roots. Mexican assembly has helped keep the cost down so let's hope that German work standards have not been eased.
The standard seats do not offer enough comfort settings. The center side post between the front and rear seats is very wide and obstructs side vision. There needs to be removable cup holder liners. The standard "leather" shift boot is too thin and feels/looks cheap. The driver's right side leg room is scant.
