Great car, great options, center console spontaneously restarts.

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.8T SEL

I really love my Jetta. It drives nicely, has decent pickup, and has great options. The seats are comfortable for both my husband and myself. The heated seats are great, but do not heat as far up the back as our older Jetta. So far the only issue I have had with the car is the center console controls crashes and restarts occasionally. Besides the occasional restart, the center console is easy to use and fairly straightforward. I love that I can connect my smartphone via Bluetooth or charging cable. The car connect app is great and will make calls or send texts without having to use my phone. Having GPS from my phone appear on the center console screen is also something I appreciate. The Jetta also has better trunk space than any car I have seen.

My amazing purchase of the Volkswagen Jetta 1. 4 se.

2017 Volkswagen Jetta

The 2017 Jetta 1. 4 se is a really roomy and well driving sedan. It is really good on highway gas mileage and above average in the city. The tires and suspension respond really well to the road even at elevated speeds( I. E. 55-75 m. P. H. ). The interior is beautiful. The stereo console has a compatible camera for backing in and side mirrors warn you of oncoming traffic. The brakes are terrific. Also the console supports apple I play and android for hands free driving, entertainment and navigation. Making a phone call or sending a text hands free is done seamlessly. Just use your USB cord and it will sync for everything as well as charge, it is also Bluetooth compatible. One of the better car purchases of my life.

Amazing cross country 2017 sedan.

2017 Volkswagen Jetta

The 2017 Jetta is a cross between luxury and functional. Although the technology is not up to the 2019 date. What you get is all you need and is reliable. Contrary to popular belief, a Sadan can do about what a track can do. I may be reaching but however at least with the 2017 Jetta, I hauled a 3x4 trailer from VA to CA in 5 days. This car is great on gas and holds up well against weather conditions. The only problems I have found so far, is the features last up until they say they will, no real wiggle room, so taking it in to the dealer will decrease problems. My personal issue with the car is the width and height on the trunk, this possibly is due to the European background, and has posed an inconvenience to me.
