2009 Volkswagen Jetta SE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)


This car definitely has a very solid feel to it, especially when compared to other brands. We found the rear legroom to be plenty for people under 6'. The downside is the 2.5L feels boring, heavy and slow, plus it's mileage isn't that great in the city. Wish they would've kept the 2.0T, but they wanted better reliability, so 2.5L it is. Interior is typical VW quality, although it's a little drab especially if you have the black interior. The quality of the V-Tex is very good, but it makes the front seats are a little too firm. Trunk is huge huge huge. Lots of features not found in other cars of it's class, such as heated seats, heated mirrors, etc. Haven't had any reliability issues so far..

Best Features

heated seats, pop-open trunk, interior lighting, lots of airbags / great safety rating

Worst Features

Better ipod controls, more storage in the front of the car/more cupholders, a way to open the trunk from the outside w/o the keyfob, and get rid of the air vent on the dash and replace it with a tray like the one found on the Tiguan.
