- tons of free luxury car options !
- not enough power
Purchased As New
this is the best sedan i ever own, unlike 05.5 jetta ve & 06-10 jetta, the 2005.5 jetta comes with tons of free luxury options such as trip computer, rain sensor, auto headlight, auto dimming mirror, dual climate a/c, heated seats, leatherette interior.. and it's pre-wire for multi-function steering wheel ($350 on eBay for a used gti leather steering wheel).
as far as mechanic issue, there is none (my car is 5 years old, 78,000 miles old as of 01/11/2011).... the only thing i replace was front brake pads ( @ 50,000miles) and a battery ( @ 76,000miles), yes, the original vw battery last me 76,000 miles before i replace it (the battery still working when i replace) ! i'm pretty sure most honda & toyota's battery die at 40,000 miles..
performance, not enough hp, the 07-10 170hp will be ideal, but, I'm not giving up the free luxury options for 20hp... this car is responsive, nimble and quick for city driving... also, amazing u-turn radius.... you can pretty much u-turn in any 2 way, single lane street without hitting the reverse... you can try it with your accord or civic, you will have to hit reverse at least once ! last thing, huge trunk space ! i can fit 2 full size language in my trunk + a carry on before i use my back seat....
the last 2 things are often overlook by many car buyers... i used to own 04 accord & 06 civic.... they just can't perform my day to day routine like my jetta.... jetta is a great city car and ideal for drivers on the go....
BTW, gas mileage is not bad, right now, with my 19" rims, i get 24 mpg... if i use stock 15", i can get almost 30 mpg
