I have a 2009 Jetta SE (not Wolfsburg but the option isn't showing up). No clue what "Nicole" is talking about - to play music through your iPod you press the "CD" button again to switch between the CD changer and ipod. You DO NOT have to remove CDs. 2.5 engine is reliable, but not very fun or fuel efficient. Rides very smoothly. Has a nice amount of features. Feels very safe and solid. Interior quality is very good, on par with some higher-end marques. HVAC system is a weak. AC takes awhile to cool the car and is noisy at the higher settings. Trunk is huge and inside space is more than adequate for 4 adults. Leatherette seating is high quality and the seats are comfortable.
interior lighting + quality, ipod adapter (even though no text shows up on the main screen), ride quality (great freeway cruiser), safety
Fuel economy is average at best. Gas struts on the trunk worry me because if they break it'll be a headache! A few more features for $22k would've been nice (multifunction display, etc.) Red rear turn indicators are hard for others to see sometimes.
