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

Review

I purchased this car thinking it's safety features were outstanding. Not so much. Icy roads sent me into a guard rail head first then spun around and slammed into my driver's side... at 35-40mph. No steering wheel airbag deployment... No side airbag deployment. The metal in the car crumpled like tin foil and all of it's plastic parts shattered like glass. Two weeks later I recieved a letter in the mail stating the transmission was being recalled and the winshield wiper plastic was cutting into the fuel lines causing them to leak. I purchased this car with cash... I should have gone on vacation instead.

Best Features

Great look, very comfortable interior.

Worst Features

Airbags must work...period. Tire pressure did not maintain. Transmission shifts very stubborn and violent.
