Beware the first model year of a VW

2005 Volkswagen Jetta New 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)


I've had this car with Package 2 for about 3 weeks. Stereo made front doors rattle something fierce. Developed buzzing noise in dashboard. Took to car wash this weekend. When air drying portion hit the front doors I thought the panneling would come off it rattled so loud! And, the next day I discovered that it retained water INSIDE the back doors. Oh, and the outside mirrors make quite a wind noise at speed.

Best Features

Interior has great features. Very nice with leather and Package 2.

Worst Features

Horrible initial quality from VW. Buy only after you've determined they can fix the door pannels / door drainage issue. Engine needs more power.
