Vehicle

2008 Volkswagen Jetta SE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 5M)

Review

D suspension is ok. Car feels sturdy + looks good. Engine power is ok, n has always turned on. D brakes are good for normal driving. D interior is well appointed and designed but d plastic grill covers on d front doors side speakers rattle with music. D 5 speed manual shifter's clear plastic cap is a little loose and makes noise when handled. D windshield wipers jolt after turning off car + d motor quit working at 21973 miles on d odometer. After proper procedure, reverse gear is a little tricky to engage. In Vigorous driving when shifting from 5th to 3rd gear, 3rd always gets denied at 55mph or above. Tail light burned out at 21352 miles on odometer. Minor electrical glitches from time2time

Favorite Features

The huge trunk and wide door entrances all around, convenience hooks in the trunk, 12v outlets in cabin and trunk. Auto up/down all windows from outside the car. Well lit interior. Full size spare. Pneumatic trunk open. Folding front passenger seat. Adjustable arm rest. Height adjustable front seats

Suggested Improvements

More than one little light in the trunk. Fix computer code that causes glitches with electrical system. Change material on front doors speaker grills. Put better quality shifter cap. Add electric switch to front passenger lumbar support, remove the knob. Better quality tail light bulbs. More HP!
