Wouldn't buy it again

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


After owning the car for 3 years, I can safely say I won't buy another VW. Ever since it was new, it sounds like a diesel for about 30 seconds when it starts. Very loud, dealer said it's normal. Now with only 30k on it, I am replacing the rear PADS AND ROTORS ($400+) for the second time! My Toyota has over 65K and haven't touched the brakes on it!! The Jetta also has a lot of road noise. While it does drive and handle well and is comfortable, overall I would say I am disappointed in the quality and don't expect it to hold up as long as it should for what I paid.

Best Features

Interior comfort and features are nice.

Worst Features

Fix the cold start noise and definitely fix the brake problem!
