2009 Jetta VW review and specification
VW is finally beginning to figure out the North America market. My Jetta SE does it all for a fair price. VW needs to bring the new diesel to scale as well as to make available their 1.4 L "blower-turbo" engine for the Jetta and Rabbit. The Jetta is basically a bargin Audi and well worth the price. Very solid car with better than average fuel economy. I only have 1500 miles on the car, but it is averaging 26.3 mpg so far. Go for the SE, I'm glad I did with the upgraded sound system and large sunroof. Also, the rear cargo area cover is easy to operate and really practical. 2009 Jetta VW review and specificationNice handling, more than enough power, sporty feeling, gorgeous interior design, well equipped standard options that can't be found in other cars in the same price range, nice paranomic sunroof that covers almost entire roof - I feel like I am driving a convertible car. My two year old son loves this.The Jetta is Volkswagen's compact sedan that was first introduced in the mid-1980s as a slightly upscale version of the Rabbit hatchback and became Volkswagen's bestseller in the U.S. The fifth-generation Jetta was introduced as a mid-year 2005 model that looks bigger, bolder and with more power. 2009 Jetta VW review and specificationThe new Jetta debuted with a new 150-horsepower 2.5-liter 5-cylinder engine developed specifically for the U.S. market. A 1.9-liter TDI diesel with direct injection was added later in 2005 and a 200-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter with direct fuel injection was added for 2006.. I get a consistent 29-34 miles per gallon. But fuel economy and comfortable seats can't redeem a car that is nearly impossible to fix. VW service is by far the worst I've ever encountered. My Jetta was out of service for 17 days over 5 service visits because of a headlight switch. The car was damaged while being repaired and required paint and body work that took a week, during which time Burdick VW/Driver's Village of North Syracuse, NY damaged the side airbag sensor, requiring another week (at a different dealer) to repair. Service techs are clearly overwhelmed by a vehicle that is not designed to be quickly or easily worked on. Very high maintenance costs (oil changes, brakes). Every service encounter leads to a second visit for work not done correctly or completely, back-ordered parts, and service loaners that don't exist.

And for 2009, ESP is standard, but the price is up $350 while the basic warranty is shorter by 1 year, from 48mo/50,000miles to 36mo/36000miles. The active head restraints are gone, and materials and features are cheaper or missing altogether throughout the car.the Cylinders 5Horsepower @ RPM170@5700. the Torque @ RPM177@4250 (foot-lbs

I read that VW is hoping to triple their sales in the U.S. over the next few years. It won't happen. All the cool, hipster ad campaigns can't conceal the fact that VW's corporate attitude assumes that people buying low-priced vehicles should have lowered expectations for an ownership experience. But VWs haven't been cheap cars for years and they break down regularly. Consumer Reports states that an 8 year old Toyota is more reliable than a 2 year old VW. We have both products in my family and there is simply no comparison. Until they get their act together with their horrible dealer service, ranked 2/5 by J.D. Power (only Isuzu is worse), they will continue to be trumped by the Japanese, Koreans, and even the Americans. My first VW, and my last. Can't wait to sell it and get another Toyota
