Killer seats
By hippobean on

Vehicle

2012 Volkswagen Jetta S 4dr Sedan w/Sunroof (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Dont buy this car unless you want back pain. the bucket seats were designed too deep and low and tilted down on the back so it's putting all the pressure on your lower back. Even the back seats were low and give you back pain. If not because of the seat, this car would have high ratings. but because of the poorly designed seats, it took the driving pleasure away from this car. And VW absolutely refused to do anything about the seats. Will never buy a VW again!

Best Features

Clutch is very easy to use. Instrument panel very pleasing to the eyes.

Worst Features

build very more comfortable seats. The back doors are too pointed, proned to accidents. Seats were designed too low, too deep in the back and too slanted causing discomfort and back pain.

I love the car but my wife has gotten terrible back and hip pain from the low seats. What car did you end up getting? Any recommendations on cars with good seats? Thanks, Chris

dude you dont have to bash the rest of the overall rating you gave it just because you dont like the seats...they are really actually comfortable, maybe its just your height or something
