2008 Volkswagen Jetta S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 5M)


Every-time I get behind the wheel of my Jetta, it brings a smile to my face! It is actually fun to drive again! The car handles the roads in WA with ease, and it shifts smoothly. The car definitely loves being in higher RPM, and drives well at low RPM. The trunk is another impressive thing! At 16 cu.Ft. It can handle a big stroller, luggage and other things with ease. Friends are impressed with how much we can back into a "compact" car. Our Jetta is just a base 5 speed manual, but it doesn't feel like it at all. It's a huge upgrade from any domestic brand. Road handling both side streets and highway is solid and predictable without being boring.

Best Features

Handling, trunk size, looks.

Worst Features

Some sound proofing in the engine space would be helpful. The engine sounds harsh when it is warming up, but fantastic afterwards. Having a delay locking feature would be nice.
