The car is a great car for the money! It is also a great car to throw around, handles like a dream. I went to the VW dealer with the intend of buying a used A4. So far I'm not regretting the decision to by a new Jetta when it comes time to make the monthly payment. I would think the gas mileage for this size of car should be better. But the gas mileage is coming in as advertised (plus its too much fun driving this car with a heavy foot).
Launch control on a remote road, close ratio transmission, engine hp/torque for 4 cylinder, handles like its on rails.
I would think German engineers would take into account the in-cabin wind buffering when the sunroof is rolled back, the windows are closed and the car is moving around 30 mph. Only way to solve this issue is to open a side window or two. The VW wind deflector nor re-positioning the sunroof solves.
