- Diesel Vehicle, nice interior gls package is nice
- rides too low, made in Mexico - not as nice as other jettas
I traded in my 2002 Jetta TDI for this one. The reported mileage was 40 highway and I barely get 33. The car sits 5 inches off the ground. It bottoms out on bumpy roads, or dirt roads. I road through a puddle and water was on it's way inside.
The car is not as 'tightly' made as the 2002. It rattles, you can hear air coming in the windows.
It has spent more time in the shop than on the road.
If you are driving this car on open highway - you are fine. If you plan on driving it on steep driveways, on a dirt road, over speed bumps, it is not practical. The whole underside of the vehicle will break (engine covers, front spoiler) when this happens. It is costly.
I had the speakers in the Monsoon sound system rattle. I wanted the Phat Noise system. Well they do not have a place for the system in the wagon. They wanted to mount it sitting upright in the trunk area - Despite having an area in the trunk wall. It did not fit there.
It is clear to me that the 2005, lacks the fine tuning that over vws had over the years (I have owned a 2 rabbits, carbriolet, and a jetta).
