2007 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)


I bought my Jetta Brand New of the lot.
Everything on this car is decent to good but not stellar. It's a nice, sporty vehicle, great sound system, handles well and I loved it while I leased it.
But even during that time frame there were recalls on the vehicle for small things like Light adjustments. Another recall was for the sunroof but they charge you $150 to fix it. Third recall was for fixing the wiper blades which threaten to cut the fuel line.
The spedometer is off and the clock runs fast. But be warned: If the EPC light comes on you won't have any idea WHAT it is! Recently just spent $400 to repair the speed sensor. As with any foreign car: Expect expensive parts and limited service.

Best Features

Brakes can stop on a dime, control is perfect, easy turning, nice safety features, good stereos, sunroof is fun, comfortable seats, lots of leg room, amazing amount of storage with flip-down back seats, love the fact you can chose to flip down either 2/3rds or 1/3rd of the seat and still carry 3-4 people, trunk is very spacious.

Worst Features

Gas mileage could use some work only gets about 22-24/gal. Too many minor recalls and not free to fix! Parts are expensive due to being a "foreign" car even though it's made in Mexico. Service is limited, either have to go 20 miles to an auto service for german/foreign cars or to the dealership and pay lots more. EPC light can come on without a fix. Maintenance is costly. oil change is costly since it requires synthetic oil. Long term cost is high for what you DON'T save off the lot. Also Dealership service charges for loaner cars, so make sure you have a ride!
