So Far So Good

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


I bought my car on July 30th in Minnesota, and drove it 350 miles over the weekend, and 900 miles back to Colorado yesterday. I'm coming off of a BWM 328xi lease, so this is a step back in many ways, but BMW is too expensive right now. They wanted $30k for a buyout! For less than $19k, so far I'm feeling really good. I got Black, and I like the exterior styling. With tinted windows, it's a sharp car. I also like the tan leatherette interior - nice contrast to the Black. The quality of the cabin is excellent. Performance is pretty darn close to my 328xi from 0 to about 40, but then it lags the BMW. And I miss 6 speeds. Overall, a solid car, but will it go in the snow?

Best Features

Styling; performance; cabin quality; good entertainment center

Worst Features

How about a AWD Jetta?? Will FWD and traction control be OK in a Colorado winter?
