2008 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 SE

Sam Smith
#VW, #Jetta

This car didn't dazzle me quite as much as it did Sam, but I do agree that it's very good. I'm not a big fan of the somewhat lumpy action of VW's manual gearboxes, but the driving experience is still silky-smooth, even though this five-cylinder engine sounds a bit coarse when you rev it. The trunk is huge, the car is comfortable, and the Jetta's updated darker taillights add some much-needed character to its rather unremarkable styling.
