Lot of Bang for the Buck
By Laurayla on


2008 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg Edition 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


We just traded in our 2008 Jetta SE for the 2008 Wolfie to get the financing deal. We were planning to just swap for another SE, but when we saw the Wolfsburg with its rear spoiler, 17-inch sporty wheels and the turbo for only a little more, we had to drive it and all we could say was WHEEEEE! Lots of power and it's quieter than the SE. Effortless acceleration where the SE would buzz like a moped to get up to speed. One thing we did not realize, though, was that it takes premium gas -- ouch! Fun ride, awesome fit/finish and we had no problems with our SE so we expect none here. Styling is decent in and out. Roomy and comfy. Trade did hold pretty well. Excellent value.

Best Features

Powerful turbo engine, wheels, roominess, smooth and quiet ride, trunk, sound system, decent fuel economy, quality.

Worst Features

Wish I could lock the darn thing without the key or remote (and the annoying beep). MP3 jack could be easier to use. Seat adjusters are awkward if not downright difficult and no power for passenger. Steering wheel audio controls and cruise control!
