2008 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan
There are 16 user reviews for the Wolfsburg Edition trim shown below
- This is the best value based on options and performance available for the 2008 Jetta.
- Great value, but still had to pay for it. Wasn't free :)
You could not build an SE model to match the Wolfsburg for anywhere close to the sticker price of the Wolfsburg Jetta. Even with all of the options on the SE there is still only the 2.5l motor available. More style, more power less money!!! Anyone considering the Wolfsburg over an S or SE, or even the SEL, should not hesitate to purchase this car!...read morehide

- Nice power w/turbo, smooth transmission, good fuel economy, attention to detail
- blind spot over left shoulder
Great value for the money. Turbo is smooth with good torque, especially for a 4-banger. Seats are comfortable and lots of extras like the sunroof, heated mirrors and those cool turn signals built into the mirrors. Fit and finish are excellent. I've got less than 400 miles on the Wolfsburg so I don't yet know it will fare in long-term reliability but I'd certainly recommend it based on 1st impressions. I chose this car over the Honda Civic Si and Subaru Impreza Outback Sport....read morehide

- 2.0 Turbo, Leather standard, DSG tranmission, Sirius Satellitte Radio
I just bought this car 2 weeks ago after owning a 2002 GTI. I wanted a car a bit bigger than the GTI but I wanted to keep performance in the same ballpark, without making compromises.
I test drove quite a few cars, and I was most impressed with the 2008 Wolfsburg Edition Jetta. It had a great list of features all in one package. The best thing about it is it comes with the 2.0 Liter Turbo (200 horse power) as apposed to the standard 2.5L (170 horse power) in the other Jettas. I had a 1.8T GTI and this car is just as fast.
This car is essentially a cheaper version of the GLI with some SE stuff thrown in. If you want the performance of the GLI without the GLI look or cost, seriously consider the Wolfsburg Edition.
The only thing missing is the car computer that lets you control things like coming home (automatically turns on mirror lamps when entering car at night), steering wheel controls, and fully automatic seats (the only automatic part on the seat is the recline, everything else is manual).
I have driven just under 1,000 miles so I can't attest to long term reviews, but I do really like this car. Way more features and style than a camry or accord!!
If you are looking for a sporty four door sedan in the 22K price range you must at least test drive this car. Trust me, I test drove 8 cars and this was the best package for me....read morehide

- The best
This is an outstand vehicle. It is not only well built (trim fits perfectly) but is comfortable, sporty and the best buy for the money. This is probably why one sees so many Jettas sharing the road!

- Good solid car for the price, heated seats, heated side mirrors , large trunk,airbags
- Loud at times, rattling noice when heat is on
This is the first car I have ever bought, I've had it for a year and I overall really enjoy it! It was very affordable as well. I especially enjoy my car during the summer months when I use my sun roof and in the winter months I love the heated seats. However, I wish I waited until the dealership received Jettas with the black interior, the tan is starting to be a hassle to clean. I recommend any young first time car buyer to purchase this car. I think it is safe and reliable....read morehide

- none i have seen so far
i am in college and i purchased this car 3 days ago and it is by far the best car i have ever owned...i am a big guy and i am comfortable in this car which most sedans and mid sized cars i do not mesh with at all... all of the features that come with the wolfsburg edition are amazing and for the price it is worth it...my grandfather has owned vw's most of his life and he said this is one of the best vw cars that he has seen them sell and thats saying something....if you are in the market for a mid sized sedan try the jetta out...you don't have to go for the wolfsburg or the sel just go try one and test drive it...you will love it and you will then buy it or lease it.......read morehide
