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


I have a 2008 vw jetta se. Love it, I also have a jeep but I needed a econ car. It was the only cheap good on gas car that I found that felt better then a wong tong box. It has nice features, heated seats, outside mirrors heated and power, pleather ;), the paint looks way better then my friends hondas or toyota after almost 4 years. I never have anything wrong with it. Its way faster then the competition in its class too, not even close. Drives 80 all day long on the freeway for 4 hours straight I never need to get out and stretch. Has safety and dummie lights for everything, even if you have a tail light out, love that. Full size spare and a HUGE truck, seriously I put my road bike in there

Favorite Features

You can roll the windows down with your key from the outside. Feels like your driving quality, people always like driving it. Huge trunk. Heated Seats, Heated outside mirrors. Windshield wipers that know when you have stopped at a light, so they stop and dont annoy you. Its not a regular old Japanese car

Suggested Improvements

Wish you could remove the back seat :0)

I am looking into buying a 2008 salsa red Wolfsburg edition Jetta. My only concern is that the dealer recommends I put premium oil in it. Do you have the same recommendation or is it possible to use regular. This could off set the good gas mileage. Your thoughts would be helpful, thank you!
