Why the 2004 Volkswagen Jetta?

Cargo capacity

Towing is not a concern, but cargo capacity was a primary reason for my purchase. There are few cars on the market that provide so much space in such a small form factor.

Interior styling

The design is clean and elegant -- every line seems both brilliantly conceived and totally inevitable.

Controls and instruments

Controls are well-placed, high quality, easy to understand and use.

Why Not the 2004 Volkswagen Jetta?

Fuel economy

Even when driving extremely conservatively, I have never been able to get much more than 30 mpg highway on this car, which seems low for a car of this size and power. A taller overdrive might help in this regard.

Dealer practices

The purchase experience was good until the sales manager stepped in to close the sale. I did not appreciate her bargaining games and told her so. The service department has misread my instructions multiple times.
