The new Jetta is a step backward
By Sarah Pak on


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


The new Jetta is my third VW. I sold my 2001 Jetta, which I believe was the best small car on the market for the last few years. I wasn't too crazy about the styling of the new Jetta, especially its Corolla-esque rear, but leased it anyway. Big mistake. I am disappointed at the new Jetta; rattles from the rear right door, glove compartment door squeaks, and it seems to gulp up engine oil. The car also feels a bit too hefty for its size, as there appears to be more leaning during cornering than the old model.

Best Features

Interior design, big trunk

Worst Features

reliability issues, also need more European styling and feel
