2006 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan 2.5 PZEV 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)


Review

I am really happy with my VW Jetta. It handles great in the snow and I feel very safe driving it. It could get better gas milage but all in all I would recommend this car to anyone. Once you drive it you'll never want anything else.


Best Features

Satellite radio, the safety features, air bags, heated leather seats, and simple design.

2006 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan 2.5 PZEV 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 5M)


Review

This is my third Jetta in six years. Volkswagen has taken the previous model and improved it beyond my wildest expectations.The improvements in features alone are too numerous to mention.Fit and finish ranks up there with the best, any European Car maker has to offer.It is a quality Automobile.Drove my other two Jettas 140K each and passed them on in the family. They are still running great. Volkswagen , " Keep up the good work". You are gaining customers for life.


Best Features

New Seat Controls and comfort.Mini spot lights for shifter.Heat and A/C controls.Trunk layout with Gorilla mat and organizer blocks.New instrument panel layout.Lane change feature.New parking wipers.Look of door panels,new dash and trim inlay.Smoothness of 5 cyl. Engine.


Worst Features

I would lke to see about a 10% inprovement in fuel economy. Considering the power of the 5 cyl. It is not bad ( High 20's)

Review

I got this car for my wife because it got such good crash test ratings and because of the airbags, gas mileage, and overall quality. We have not been disappointed. It drives great (we came from an Xterra which rides like a tin can on wheels), it has more than enough power for a little car, and it is fun to drive. That is really all you can ask. There is enough room inside for us and plenty of room for back seat passengers. The trunk room is outstanding!


Best Features

I like this car's little things like the blue dash lights, the red overhead lights that light up the inside, the blinker (you tap it once to go left or right and it automatically blinks times in that direction), and glare diminishing rear view mirror (no more bright lights at night!)


Worst Features

My only problem have is with the "accuator", which is the release mechanism for the fuel door. It gets stuck in the open position (this has happened twice in eight months) and we are not able to close to the fuel door. This is not a major problem, but they have had to replace it twice and it is getting annoying!

Review

The New Jetta is fun to drive. It handles best at highway speeds. Its handling is very stable. It feels good going fast. The Electronic Stability System saved me from losing control once when I was cut off by another driver changing lanes. I wish people would get out of the fast lane so I could have a ticket to fly.


Best Features

I like just about everything about the car, especially the XM radio which is great on long trips.


Worst Features

Not a problem for me because I'm the only one that drives my Jetta, but when changing the preset driver seat positions, the mirrors should move to preset positions also. The pull down hook inside the trunk is great for hanging plastic grocery bags, but it could use another on the right side.
