Nothing hidden, "It is what it is..."

2013 Volkswagen Jetta SE 4dr Sedan w/Convenience (2.5L 5cyl 5M)


I purchased a manual SE w/ conv package a few months ago and have driven about 80 miles a day since, mostly highway and I have been satisfied by the MPG, transmission (wish it had a sixth gear, but the fifth and forth gears are rather tall) and features.
If you expect high grade interior material, then you should understand that this car is a compromise, high value, high feature, something had to give, and that was the "plastic" nature of this car. I call it my plastic car (even the seats are plastic) but appreciate the good ride, decent acceleration and good transmission.
The car is surprisingly fun to drive, but compliant as a highway cruiser.

Best Features

Five speed, bluetooth, "simplicity" of controls.

Worst Features

A six speed would make the driving more engaging. Perhaps a little more padding in the seats.
