2013 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan SEL 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (2.5L 5cyl 5M)
I've only had my 2013 Jetta SEL for two months, but it's been pretty great so far.
I like that it's got a sporty look inside and out, and I like the leather interior.
The acceleration is pretty good for 170HP and the ride is smooth overall.
My main complaints are some cheap aspects of the interior - for the price I paid and having the premium trim line, I can't believe it doesn't have power seat adjustment.
Also, to tilt the chair back, you have to pump this plastic pedal up and down (tacky). Also, even when you move the front seats all the way back, there isn't enough leg room for tall people over 6 feet.
Not much head room for tall people either.
Could have designed that better!
Sleek looking interior, sporty look, decent acceleration, handles the road well, fun to drive, the blue tooth capability of synching your phone with the car.
Automatic/power seat adjustment.
Allow the front seats to move back farther for tall people.
More head room for tall people.
The touch-screen radio looks cool but is kind of a pain to use and program.

I traded my Corolla in for the top of the line Jetta SEL and I never looked back. Great product from VW! It had leatherette seats, heated, AMAZING Fender sound system, comfortable ride, NAV system was easy to use. MPG was lower than I expected, I was averaging 28 MPG 70% highway.
Fender sound system, comfortable seats, pep in the drive
Improve mpg, make seats a little less hot in summer
2013 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
I bought VW jetta 2013 SE automatic about two months ago and it has been nightmare driving the car with so many flaws. First of all, about two weeks ago, the car just stalled out in the middle of the road when I was driving 40 miles per hour. Did I get into an accident because of that? almost. Nearest dealership towed my car and had a look at it, but what they said was there was no problem found, so you need to drive with it. Second issue I'm having right now is grinding sound and from when gear changes. I've never had this experience from my previous car that I drove for two years. Last but not least, steering wheel has been off-centered since it came out of dealership. Don't buy VW jetta!!

I purchased a manual SE w/ conv package a few months ago and have driven about 80 miles a day since, mostly highway and I have been satisfied by the MPG, transmission (wish it had a sixth gear, but the fifth and forth gears are rather tall) and features.
If you expect high grade interior material, then you should understand that this car is a compromise, high value, high feature, something had to give, and that was the "plastic" nature of this car. I call it my plastic car (even the seats are plastic) but appreciate the good ride, decent acceleration and good transmission.
The car is surprisingly fun to drive, but compliant as a highway cruiser.
Five speed, bluetooth, "simplicity" of controls.
A six speed would make the driving more engaging. Perhaps a little more padding in the seats.
