A step-up from my American cars
By Brandon on

Vehicle

2008 Volkswagen Jetta S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)

Review

This is my first german-engineered car and can easily say that it is far above any other American car that I've owned in terms of build quality and standard features as well as safety features. To be fair, the engine seemed under-whelming compared to say even an old Cavalier Z24 that I used to own. With that said however, acceleration at higher speeds is greater but just wish it had more "punch" from a stop. The interior is well-built and controls intuitive. I read about many complaints regarding the exterior looking too "corolla-ish" in the rear and too "audi-ish" in the front. I actually love the look of the vehicle to the chrome grill to the softer body design.

Best Features

Heated mirrors - great for our harsh NE Ohio winters Trunk space - You simply can't find this much space on another compact car Build quality and attention to detail - Small things like folding seats, no intruding trunk hinges Traction control standard

Worst Features

Engine design could be improved for more pep Comfort is a bit lacking - Do not like seats curving around the edges and center console is obtrusive Fuel economy - Fuel economy is mediocre for a vehicle manufactured in 2008 Reliability should be top-notch for a vehicle in this price range
