2008 Volkswagen Jetta SE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)


My wife was driving a 1995 C220 sedan. We had a good one, but decided to trade it in on a new VW with FWD and way more safety features. This 20K sedan is far away a fantastic value for the build quality and level of equipment it offers. Seats are comfy, and the trunk is huge. Performance is average with the 2.5 motor. the tiptronic trans works great! I only hope we got a good copy of the Jetta and it proves to be as reliable as the MB was.

Best Features

Heated seats, side curtain airbags, traction control, sirius sat radio, rear ac vents. Can't really think of anything else as the amount of equipment on a car in this price range is fabulous. An Accord would have been 5-6K MORE.

Worst Features

Steering wheel controls should be standard on all models as should be the 2.0t turbo motor :-).
