2005 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
The Jetta has A/C vents located to blow in every direction but the direction you need them to blow. Its directional lights stay on when you shut the vehicle off, if you don't realize this it will run your battery down. My car's alarm system flew the coop after four months. The A/C is barely A/C, don't buy this car if you live in a hot area, my daughter's Saturn ION cools 10x better. Its seat covers ball up like a cheap sweater in a dryer. This car's overall shape makes it difficult to back up as visibility even for a tall person is limited
Redesign entire vehicle. This car truly stinks.
2005 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan New Value Edition PZEV 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 5M)
I have had this car for almost a year and I still love to drive it. It has a lot of get up and go and I love burning through the gears. The stereo is pretty good considering it is the Value Edition and I love the front end styling. For around $18,000 you aren't going to find a much better car. I leased mine for $158 a month. I have had no problems at all. I just got back from North Carolina, a 10 and a half hour drive for me and it was comfortable enough for just two short gas stops. I would like to get a GLI next with even more power with exterior styling.
The front end and the five speed manual makes it loads of fun to drive! It gets pretty good gas mileage too!
I know it is the Value Edition, but I would like to see nicer rims on it.
2005 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan New 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 5M)
I have always loved VW's. So when I was in the market for another car and this slightly used one came up for sale, I jumped at the chance to own another VW! My first car was a 1980 VW Rabbit. My mother owed a 1984 GTI Wolfsburg, I learned how to drive a stick on that one. We ran these cars until they just gave out. I've owned other cars but NOTHING compares to a VW! I have the 2005 1/2 Jetta and I love the way it handles, all the features and I love the looks I get when I'm driving it. My daughter's friends call it the "Sexy Mobile." My only wish is that it got better gas mileage (I knew I should have bought the diesel). I am a faithful VWer for LIFE!
I love the new body style. I liked the old one but the new one is SEXY. I love the way it handles. I love the power package and the heated seats. I love the way the horn sounds. I love my Jetta!
The only thing that I would change about the car is it needs just one more gear. The rpms are high enough that I can take off in second gear. So when I'm at top speed (70) on the highway, it feels like I could shift just one more time.
2005 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLI 1.8T 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
This is my 6th VW, my first was a '69 Bug. It is my third Jetta in a row and all the Jettas have been red. My brother is still driving my 96 Jetta! The power and shift points on the 05 GLI have been matched perfectly! This is a turbo hot rod. It's street appeal and overall handling combined with the turbo power make it a great car to drive! I too miss the heated seats, but have grown very comfortable in the Ricarro's - it's a true sports car - some luxury has to be lost when driving a car like this. I bought it late in the production because I love the styling and my '02 only had 23,000 miles on it. I use the cruise control and get no less than 25 mpg and even 30 on the hyway!
Styling and the matched engine / transmission. The engineers got the system tuned very very nicely. Little or no turbo lag! I really like the stabilization system too. When pressing the envelope the stabilization calms things down. Great in the turns the seats hold the smiling passengers snug!
Possibly adjust the clearance on the effects on the nose. There are some areas it does a scrape if the curb is high.
2005 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan New 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
My New 2005 Jetta is great. It has every gadget I could want, except GPS. It is definitely a car made to bond with the driver. This car hugs the road on curves. It never feels unstable. It's as spacious as a midsize sedan. I bought the Pkg. 2 and have everything I ever thought I'd need in a car and more. It has too many clever standard options to mention. I'm 35 years old, and the new body style suits my taste just fine. It's sporty without appearing that I'm trying to hold on too tightly to age 19. I'm so glad I got out of my gas-guzzling SUV for something smarter. Some say it's pricey, but you really get what you pay for. After all, it's a German VW!
The leather interior, passenger and trunk space, dual heated powered seats w/climate control, Pneumatic lumbar adjustments, the adjustment mechanism for the sunroof, rear window screen, pull-down rear seats, and rain-sensing windshield wipers!
The audio system could be improved, there is some rattling in the doors at higher volumes.
