2010 Jetta LE 1 Month review
By todddr on
2010 Volkswagen Jetta Limited Edition 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 5M)
Have had this car for 1 month. I quite like it for the price; I turned out around $23k for the LE with sunroof and a few other extras. A friend told me the Jetta was a "poor man's BMW." Well, I used to own a BMW 3-series, and overall value for the VW has impressed me so far. For slightly over half the BMW price I have a German car...granted built in Mexico...but a good solid feel and ride. Decent power, and cruises the freeway at 90 mph quite well. Some reviews mention poor braking--I don't get that impression. Also, some other reviews mention engine noise; I don't find it "noisy" at all...a little growl that I kinda like.
Interior feels "upper class." Sport mode on DSG autotrans is kinda fun. Like the adjustable center arm rest.
Setup of cruise control switch on turn signal is both nice and a pain at times. Not sure I like the DRL/headlight setup.
