2012 Volkswagen Jetta SE 4dr Sedan w/Convenience (2.5L 5cyl 5M)
I've got a 2012 jetta with just over 6K miles on it. For the 16 months i have owned it, i have come to conclude that it's fast enogh to get you in to trouble, but controlable enogh to get you out of it. Being a new driver, getting a good, safe, reliable car was my parrents priority, so the got me a jetta, natrually. Only problem with it is that it's build quality isn't tip-top. My friend has a VW golf (assembled in Wolfsberg, not mexico) and it's much better put together. All together, it's a good package. I'd recomend the 5 speed manual with the 2.5 liter engine. For the $21,000 you pay you get a lot for your money, plus it's a very sexy machine!
Responsive gas, brake and clutch.
Smooth and fun 5 speed manual box.
big trunk, with space for 3 sets of skis (through central opening at armrest)
Put it together better! (no seriously VW why?)
although fast, 170 horse out of a 2.5 isn't too good, since the 2.0 turbo (gas) gets 200 horse.
