2008 Volkswagen Jetta SE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
Review
VW produces 5 Jetta models, the S, SE, SEL, Wolfburg, and the non-Jetta GLI (with the 4T engine). The S manual being the base, the SE Auto the most popular coming in at $21,000. For that hefty tag you get quite an impressive list of options including heated seats, satellite radio (not satellite ready!), 6sp, auto trans, full auto up/down windows (all 4) and a nice sun roof. Remote electric heated mirrors and remote trunk and fuel door. Heated washer nozzles and the newest I-beam wipers. Some say it's expensive but do a hard side by side comparison and you'll see that the Jetta is just a little more. You may not like the Jetta if: you like cushy seats, sloppy steering, need excessive legroom
Favorite Features
The performance is great, but forget the fuel economy when you stomp on the gas. Premium sound package is excellent. Firm leatherette seats, love em' along with the 5 stage seat heaters. No blind spots, small=great in traffic.
Suggested Improvements
Forward console w/grab handles? 2 small Rear center console, 2 small Dual lighted sun visors with sliding doors & 2small lights. Factory tires are terrible in the snow. It takes time to learn where the best power range of the engine is through the electric gas pedal.
