- Cheapened to the point of being an 80's Korean car
Purchased As Not Purchased
Having owned a 2006 and 2008 Jetta SEL, I can only say that this car is a big disappointment to loyal VW owners. All the fit and finish is gone, as are so many previous VW exclusive extra features now deleted. All to reach a larger customer base at the expense of real VW owners. They made a less expensive, but "cheap" feeling car compared to the last generations of Jetta. My 08 feels like a BMW - this one has the feel and finish of an 80's Korean car. Doors close with a tinnyness I haven't seen since the days of the Vega. There is no longer a power seat option, the trunk is no longer lined, the armrest is fixed and too many other deletions and the car has an overall cheap feel to the materials. Buy a Kia if you like this sort of "feel" in a car. The German it and finish is gone. These cars were great BMW alternatives. No longer, you have to go to BMW or Audi S4 (at about 15K more to get the same feel as the previous Jetta. VW - you BLEW IT!!!!!! You lost me as a buyer in the future if this is the garbage you are going to make.
