I was in the market for either a BMW 3 series or Audi A4. The prices were too much. I found the Jetta 2009 Wolfsburg AM and took it for a test drive and was VERY impressed. Very close to the Audi. Great car bumper to bumper and the dealership (Palisades) was great unlike the BMW and Audi dealerships I went to. This car is very responsive with great handling. It is the Audi A4 without all the glamor and that is ok with me because I saved the extra $13-$15K in my pocket. You will not find a similar sedan in American or Japanese for the price.
Engine, handling, goes up a hill unlike the Japanese sedans Minimal electronics how I like it. Drives great in the snow - so you don't need the A4's quattro AWD - the transmision is great allows you to slow down without using breaks. 3 year Maintenance coverage free
The car is perfect only thing is to add bigger gas tank from 14 to 16 will make a big difference.
