2005 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Love the heated seats. Thought I would get better gas mileage. Plastic covers over knobs peeling off. Wipers come on without turning them on. Needed new timing belt, this was covered , thank god, very expensive repair. In cold weather, loud rattling noice from muffler area, was checked out, can't fix. Design problem. Right now, trying to decide whether to buy or walk away from lease.

Best Features

Spunky, fair gas mileage, big trunk.

Worst Features

Wheel covers are cheap. Better covering for knobs, not cheap plastic that melts away.
