2009 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen SE 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
Bought it brand new and love the sporty way it handles - nice acceleration and fun to drive. I used to own a Ford Focus wagon and this car is way more luxurious and comfortable. I was in the market for a station wagon and noticed that there are few offered in the US - mostly from European car makers. Did not think I would be able to afford a German car, but this one is affordable! We had one minor issue (something creaked). The part was replaced under warranty. 15,000 miles @23/32 mpg (city/highway) with no issues but that. This car comes with ESP, plenty airbags and anti-slip-regulation. The panoramic sun roof lets in light, but no heat.
Fahrvergnuegen! Quiet and sexy car. Good pickup if you need it. Aux input jack in armrest. Awesome radio. Comfortable seats. Sun roof is wonderful. Child seats install easily. Lots of storage in the back. Synthetic oil requires oil changes only every 10,000 miles. Complementary courtesy check.
Could use more storage compartments in the front of the car. Fog lights could be standard. Windshield wipers are too slow in heavy rain. Little head room in rear seats for taller people.
