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


We bought this car for my wife. She uses it everyday and we use it on long trips. It is comfortable with an excellent, balanced ride. The rear seat is a little cramped but the boot is huge. It is good to drive albeit with excessive clutch play required at idling speeds. The transmission is short and crisp. The steering is precise. It inspires a somewhat erect driving position. The fuel economy we get is 24 mpg, it could be better if VW didn't make this strange choice of a 2.5 5-in-line engine which doesn't really have stellar performance.
