Complaint Resolution:

No, dealer refused to help

Purchased my Volkswagen Jetta SEL Premium in Oct. of 2019. My wife and I wanted to get something better on gas for the driving I have to do for work. We already owned a 2010 Volkswagen Passat that I love but it takes premium fuel so another requirement was regular.

The car looks a little bit like old man car. It is quick, the inside looks nice, excellent fuel efficiency. The sound system is horrible, it should come with something a little bit better for a 23k Vehicle. The phone connection is worthless. I have been to the dealer 3

This car drives very nicely. Engine is peppy and transmission shifts smoothly the most of the time. Sometimes downshifts are noticeable. All the technical features in this car command an applause. Heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats and heated rear seats are awesome. Digital instrument cluster and infotainment

Pros:Technology and fuel economy.

Cons:Front passenger seat adjustments, material quality
