Great Car...Engine noise when cold
By Stu on


2010 Volkswagen Jetta SE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 5M)


Previously have driven the Passat since 2003. Lease every 2 years. First experience with the Jetta. When starting from cold, annoying engine noise until motor warms up. Usually only last for 15 seconds or so...but very noticeable. Dealer tells me the oil needs to get into the lifters b4 noise will go away. Haven't found any recalls or so regarding this condition. Miss the 2.0 turbo. What a treat to drive that engine. Perfect fit for the VW line.

Best Features

Handles great, fun to drive. Touch screen Satellite radio. Sunroof. Seats very comfy. The 5-speed, no doubt. Quick with the manual, no "auto" lag when accelerating. Plenty of interior room and trunk space. Great quality/build for the money.

Worst Features

Annoying engine noise(2.5 engine). Offer the 6 speed for us "manual" buffs. Better fuel economy with this engine.
