Want to love my Jetta, but...
By Houston on


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


I chose the Jetta from a very short list. I actually wanted a Hybrid very much since. However, when I drove the Jetta, I just fell in love with it's handling, interior room and massive trunk size [the Soprano's would get trunk-envy here]. Sadly, along the road a long list of annoyances has cause me to rethink my relationship with VW. Here is the list: - Sunroof - sometimes closes improperly, propped up in vent position - Interior plastics - bubble and peel - Trunk release - stopped working and then once 'fixed' still not working - Service guys thought I was crazy for 1] having so many issues and 2] for expecting them to be fixed 1st time. - Service creating more issues during fix

Best Features

Handling - unfortunately, I speed up in curves now. Because I CAN. Interior - roomy and well designed. Trunk - HUGE. Sat radio for not much more.

Worst Features

Plastics. Bid that stuff out and let someone else engineer your plastics for Texas heat -- PLEASE. Electrical. I ignored people who told me that this is a long-time issue.
