I was looking for a big spacious car and wanted to move out from existing car manufacturer cars like Maruti, Hyundai and even to some extent Toyota. Budget was not a driving consideration, i wanted to indulge and pamper myself to a big car. Jetta and Superb made the cut finally, whilst I was quite keen on Superb, my Skoda dealership bad experience put me off and helped me to narrow down my decision to just one car; The Jetta. My experience with Skoda dealership got me thinking as to what their behaviour would be once I drive out with one of their car. I would have definitely got myself a baggage of bad experience/s over the time I would have had the Superb.Volkswagen Jetta looked big, spacious and was at a great price when compared to the Superb. To top it the I found VW guys really helpful and this turned out a decisive factor in my purchase of the Jetta.

Must say, I had done an exhaustive homework in terms of legroom, headroom and shoulder room, but then got a surprise when i realised post purchase (unfortunately) that the Jetta has a large hump running in the middle all the way to back seat. I think this makes the middle passenger in the row 2 very uncomfortable and converts a wide and spacious ;looking 5 seater to just a 4 seater car.

I also don't like nor am i comfortable with the location of the rear air con vents. I really appreciate the efforts of the company in making even the rear passengers comfortable but then a slightly odd position has spoiled the party both for me and VW. I found these protruded AC vents further increases the discomfort of the middle passenger in row 2. I would serious advice all 5 member family to check these irritations before deciding on the Jetta. I also believe that VW need to provide leather upholstery with the Jetta as a standard.

Now coming to my likes and I am just amazed by the power and performance of the diesel engine Jetta is having. I found it extremely powerful and very easy to drive also due to the electric power steering on the Jetta. Every time I drive it myself it puts a big smile on my face. Another excellent feature I can swear by is its ride quality. Though space has some issues but still I sit very comfortably at back without any jerks coming inside the cabin. I just perceive all the roads to be very finely tarmacked though a total misconception but still I can live with this illusion as long as I am sitting inside the Jetta. However, all these pleasurable feeling gets diluted the moment I sit in the front seat or drive the car as the engine noise does filter in to the car, which is quite discomforting. The engine noise feels ok in city traffic due to the city traffic, but on long highway drives on silent roads teh noise is quite audible and this make me feel unhappy.

But then the music system, AIRCON controls and interior quality makes me feel a way more happier and has somewhere assuaged the bad feeling of engine sound filtering inside the cabin.  Touch screen music system feels great and so is sound quality. Also I appreciate the utility of USB and aux-in. But for my driver, Ramesh the most exciting thing is the provision of 12-way driver seat adjustment setting.
