2012 Volkswagen Jetta SE 2.5 5 cylinder
Almost a great car, but quality lets it down harshly
Good overall, but skiddish about the long term reliability issues with VWs.
Purchased used in '13 from a VW dealer, interior was slightly worn already. Fit and finish were not that great, but the car was VERY reasonably priced. We have issues with my car key hanging up when shutting down and odd A/C switching off and on while at highway speed. Love the legroom in the back and front seats; just wish they were powered in the SE models.
We do rather long road trips and just finished a 2500 mile Christmas run visiting family, and I still love the fuel economy with this gas engine; it has longer legs than I have ability to sit that long.
Would we purchase again? Yes, but only if I could get the TDI.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
