2012 Volkswagen Jetta SE PZEV 4dr Sedan w/Convenience, Sunroof (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
I traded my 08' SE for the same 12' yesterday.
Initially I was impressed.
After 100 miles, I have built the 'perfect' Jetta.
Not in order, my specs are listed under 'Favorite Features' and 'Improvements'
36/36K maintenance program
sportier body (like the front view 'smirk')
seats = ++ comfy)
rear leg room
no 'rolling stop' accelerator hesitation (yet)
moon roof w/wind shield (no 'whir' when moon roof open/windows closed)
touchscreen audio system (w/B/T, SAT - Yay!) doors unlock when in Park
exterior trunk latch
From 2008 SE:
48 mo/48K mi. basic warranty
more responsive steering (less body roll)
peppier 'off the block'
'expensive' interior finish (not including seat comfort and stereo)
larger door storage pockets
automatic TPMS (no reset required)
OVERHEAD SUNGLASS COMPARTMENT (why skimp on such a simple convenience?)
Front bumper (new 'under bite' will be a nightmare with curbs)
