2007 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg Edition 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 5M)

Review

The Jetta Wolfsburg is similar to the 2.5 trim, but adds a sunroof, convincing faux leather seats, rear center armrest, alloy wheels, and floor mats in addition to the cold weather package. It is available in black, white, silver, and gray. Its understated exterior styling belies the quality of the interior. It's even more impressive at night. Soft touch materials are used extensively, and even if you find hard plastic, it has a solid, quality feel. The exception being the paper-like shift boot. The ride is firm yet very compliant, excellent road manners. Its acceleration is acceptable from stop, but highway passing is effortless to a flaw - watching for flashing lights is compromised by rear visibility.

Favorite Features

The interior is amazing for a car that costs less than $20,000. I like the ambient red lighting at night. It has substantial passenger and cavernous luggage room (bigger than my previous Taurus). I like the torquey, great sounding engine. All-in-one package with no options needed.

Suggested Improvements

The manual transmission is a little bit notchy. Also, frequent are shifts needed for modest around town acceleration, which makes you want to run it pretty hard just to shift less! Finally, if you stall the engine (doh!), you have to turn the car off and back on to restart it. The shift boot feels cheap.
