Can't Wait to Get Rid of It
By Erik on


2007 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 PZEV 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 5M)


I bought this car and was happy with it until I started driving it further than a few blocks and winter came. It has no comfortable seating position. Also, the defroster does not heat the bottom part of front window, which leads to snow and ice buildup under the wipers. The transmission whine makes it sound like police are always present, when it's not grinding its gears. I used to have a V6 and the average gas mileage on that was nearly 20% better than I get on this car (though EPA ratings show it the other way around).

Best Features

At least there is not much wind noise on the highway.

Worst Features

This car needs better build quality, a better stereo, a better transmission, and to get rid of the engine noise under acceleration (it sounds like a beater).
