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


I had a 95 Passat VR6, then 2001 New Turbo Beetle, now the New Jetta 2.5 with the 5 speed manual. The New Jetta is as large as my old 95 Passat (actually taller), and the 2.5, 5 cylinder engine is smooth and responsive. Not as powerful as the VR6 or 4 cylinder turbo, but I have no complaints. The quality of the interior is impressive and the instrument cluster and climate controls are very easy to navigate. Love the rain sensitive wipers. Huge trunk. My only complaint is not with the car but with the consistency of VW service. I've had multiple experiences of bad service at both local dealerships. I've just learned to be assertive.

Best Features

Under exterior mirror lighting that lights up the area adjacent to the doors when you electronically unlock the doors. Nice security feature.
