Volkswagen Jetta owner reviews

"The Jetta distances itself from the Golf with its own look, a longer wheelbase and more room inside."

This car is a complete dog. The driver's door sounds like a 1960s van when closing it, like there's something loose, there is excessive wind noise around the door, everything rattles and buzzes in the dashboard, its suspension bangs and rattles. This is the worst car I have ever owned. I have had many VWs including previous gen. Jetta. They were all brilliant. This car belongs in scrap heap. VW should be ashamed. Avoid this car.
