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


My first VW, the 2.0T Wolfsburg is comfortable and well crafted, I feel like I'm driving something costing $10k more. A very solid car, the suspension and steering are excellent. The engine delivers a satisfying rush of acceleration when you want it. DSG transmission's Sport mode changes the car from a sedate cruiser to a growling animal - lots of smiles. Trunk is huge, with fold down seats can carry lots of cargo. So far 9K miles, no troubles. Very happy all around.

Best Features

Ride, DSG. The many thoughtful standard features. Upscale interior. Comfortable seats, leatherette material feels nice and seems durable. Great performance with decent fuel economy (28 MPG in mostly highway driving). Beautiful wheels.

Worst Features

Offer more colors. Improve/Maintain Reliability. Seat controls could be better. More stereo upgrade options/accessories: Amp, Sub, USB, Bluetooth, HD Radio, Nav.. Move cruise controls to a pod on steering wheel. Improve MPG (perhaps an Eco mode as a counterpart to Sport mode)?
