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


Review

I just bought my car this year and so far so good. We noticed the headliner coming off and the dealership fixed it under warranty. I do notice a knocking noise, sounds like it's coming from the trunk. I tease my son and tell him it's the other passenger trying to get out. Everytime I've had an issue the dealership has been the best. It handles great and fun to drive. My husband drove it to work one day and he loved it. I was just looking for something simple and got more then expected.


Best Features

I love the navigation/radio. I like that it is roomy for everyone. I love my sunroof.


Worst Features

Make the arm rest a little sturdier. There is a hesitation when pushing the gas after a hard stop.

Review

I purchased this car today and everything was fine until I tried to get it in reverse. My daughter and I drive manual transmissions, and have never had any trouble until this one. I learned from our good friend Barry that you push down on the gear shift to get it in reverse! I was ready to take the car back to the dealer tomorrow!

Review

Some minor interior quality things need to be improved, like the window buttons have started to loose its paint, and homelink transmitter fell off. Over all its a great car. Have not had one bit of problems with it. Doesn't have that great of pick up and go. But has a lot of modification options which I've taken advantage of.


Best Features

Very stylish, good features


Worst Features

More improvement on quality. Minor things that need improvement.
