Solid car, MSRP pricey
By mike ogle on


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


This is third Jetta we have owned, Bought new body style, $28K MSRP 5spd chosen to try and improve power of 2.5 and package 2 which puts it near to entry level luxury vehicles but so does the price. Interior design is superb, tops in class I would say, high quality plastics for most part, with a few cost cutting exceptions. Black exterior with beige interior and real wood accents, very impressive. Leather seats have held up well, no wear apparent after 64K miles. Reliability problems have been minimal with exception of stereo system which has been disappointing. Overall a nice vehicle, plan on moving to a used Audi A4 in next few months to upgrade handling and power

Best Features

3 spoke steering wheel, interior elegance and looks, great gas mileage, regularly get 30+ mpg, overall drive ability excellent for class, nice size trunk, comfortable ride, real wood trim, real full leather, heated seats, computer display for statistics (mpg, etc)is great

Worst Features

2.5 engine is coarse sounding, not befitting a $28K car, stero controls have blistered, sound quality poor, cheap plastics used on door handles, exterior looks are on bland side
