Wolfsburg 2.0T: quality, fun, value, safe

Vehicle
2008 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg Edition 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)
Review
Looked for a commuter car that is not boring to drive. Tested all Honda's, Toyota's and Hyundai's and used Mercedes and BMW in the under 25k range. They had nothing to compare to the Jetta drive quality and feel. Bought mine in June 2008. Initial climate control malfunction which I had to contact the CEO of VW USA Mr. Jacoby, since dealer Bob Baker was clueless. Dealer in Escondido Classic is awesome and fixed problems 100% with the help of factory engineers. It was a faulty temp. sensor in the left vent. Driving over hills to work, 35 miles with 15 miles city driving I get 28-29 MPG at 70-80 and 30+mpg at 65MPH regular gas. Loves the responsiveness at any speed. Handling like Porsche.
Favorite Features
Agree with other reviewers about the solid quiet engine and DSG combination which is the soul of the car. Fantastic responsive and powerful brakes and suspension. Silky smooth transmission. Sweet engine growl, very quiet when driving normally. 10,000 mile oil change intervals. 17" rims and spoiler.
Suggested Improvements
The DSG at idle rolls forward and hunts when on a slight uphill. After 15000 miles the DSG is downshifting rough at low speed after warming up. In slow traffic the car sometimes jerks a lot. When slowing down to park it will almost stall and then blurp forward. I will mention this on the next serv.
