2008 Volkswagen Jetta S PZEV 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 5M)
I have had the 2008 Jetta S for 4.5 months and put 5,500 miles on it. It is absolutely the best car on the market for the price paid. The interior feels luxurious. The drive is excellent - smooth and confident. Lots of power, legroom, headroom, ample trunk space. I have a base model, but I do not feel a need for anything that is not there. A true engineering marvel for this price.
Roominess (I am 6'5" tall), interior design, build quality, great ride and handling, many options in the base model, absolutely great value!!!
1. The honk sound after locking the car using the remote is unpleasant. My old jetta had nicer sound. 2. Archaic passenger seatback adjustment circular knob is extremely hard to reach and operate 3. Radio reception is subpar 4. Fuel gauge is non-linear. When it shows 1/2 full you only have 1/3.
