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


I am so disappointed in my car. I am almost 5' 9" and can not get comfortable in my seat at all. I started having back problem within about 2 months of having car and now my knee (which only hurts getting out of my car) It sits way too low. I had a bigger vehicle before this purchase and thought I wanted something smaller and more fuel efficient. I am getting low 20's for is partly due to the way I drive, it I can take off fast I do. This is definitely not the vehicle for me. Oh and I had no idea until someone told me weeks later that I needed premium gas due to the turbo engine. So I am paying the same for gas as I was for my larger vehicle. Very disappoint I chose this vehicle. If tall avoid.

Best Features

Looks nice inside and out. Has great pick up!

Worst Features

More comfortable seating with more adjustments available. More customer education about turbo engines and types of gas to use. If I was told I needed to pay more for gas I would not have choose this model. I wanted to save money on gas and ended up paying the same or more.
