2008 Volkswagen Jetta Review

Safe Happens. The 2008 Volkswagon Jetta. We believe in making good impressions. Hence a new eye catching chrome grille. One more thoughtful touch to top off a thoughtful car. Drive in swift style with the 2.5l iter 170 Horsepower 5 cylinder inline engine. All that while achieving a fantastic 29 miles per gallon. Link a Triptronic transmission to your engine for an automatic that functions like a manual. Working in conjunction with our Anti-lock Braking System Electronic Brake Pressure Distribution senses exactly how your VW is braking then applies just the right amount of braking power to each individual wheel as needed. The Jetta was quite a looker. Then the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety went and crashed it. The results? Beautiful. The Jetta earned the best overall crash-test ratings of any car in its class. The Volkswagen Jetta received the best score ever! Every Volkswagon comes loaded with features and options. 12 Way programmable seats dual zone Climatronic Multifunction steering wheel In dash 6 CD Changer. We could go on but wouldn’t you just rather Drive it. The 2008 Volkswagon Jetta.
