2008 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan
There are 13 user reviews for the S trim shown below
- 6 speed automatic, 170hp, feels like it cost more then $19k
- Road noise on hwy can be loud.
I researched many cars online in this class and found this to be the most for the money. The interior quality seems high. Very comfortable front seats. I bought the base S model with automatic and 16" alloy wheels for msrp $19200. The trunk is very large and even comes with a full size spare tire. This is my first VW and if it stays reliable I will buy another one in the future. The 5 cyl engine has a neat exhaust note when rpms raise.
The only con I noticed is road noise is higher than expected on the highway. Not sure if its the tires or a lack of insulation in car. It is an "economy" car in my eyes so I will turn up the radio volume a bit and enjoy my Jetta.
The dealership I visited was actually not a bad experience. I have had BAD car buying trips and this was one of the lowest stress, low pressure times. Haggling was kept to the bare minimum. I drove away feeling I got a fair deal....read morehide

- I love the car, the preformace is a great. It handles turns nicely.
- Gas milage is not as good as my collora, but the car is still worth it.
I wrecked my 07 collora in December and test drove several compact - mid size cars. I was very impressed with the Jetta's handleing, preformance, standard options and price :)

- Many standard features for a base 2.5S, more power than civic and Corolla
I bought the standard el cheapo model with manual shift. For under $18,000 it's a very smooth, tight, fun to drive car. It has 16" steel wheels with plastic hubcaps but very nice Bridgestone Turanza tires. Cruise, AC, traction control, nice sound system, front and side airbags and 170 horse power are standard. For 2008 the interior is larger as I didn't previously fit well in a Jetta. The space and comfort is adequate. It's really very nice for the price range....read morehide
