|2011 Vw Jetta Owners Manual|
With attention to interior details, quality materials, and gratification found in higher-end autos, past generations of the Volkswagen Jetta have carried a certain cache among the young, hip and upwardly mobile. Although the new price, sleeker exterior, and generous rear legroom of the redesigned Jetta for 2011 will stay to appeal (as will the fuel economy of probably the most expensive diesel TDI trim), cost-cutting efforts have downgraded most of the details that made Volkswagens special talismans for devoted followers. Though the 2011 redesign has maintained an auto with a good, solid ride, most agree totally that the Jetta is no more exceptional, but quite simply good.
The Volkswagen Jetta sedan happens to be redesigned, both inside and out. Offering four trims for 2011—the base S, mid-range SE, high-end SEL, and diesel TDI—Volkswagen seeks to distinguish the Jetta as more than simply a Golf in sedan’s clothing. The redesign demonstrably aimed to take on Jetta’s Japanese competitors (the Corolla and Civic) by lowering prices (the beds base S begins with an MSRP of $15,995) and modernizing its style that is exterior evaluations to the appearance of an Audi). The car happens to be elongated—adding 3.5 inches overall and close to 3 inches to the rear-seat legroom—bringing the level of comfort close to that of a midsize sedan. The interior, however, has suffered from cost-cutting efforts. The interior is less padded, silver trim is now painted synthetic, and the dashboard plastic has a cheaper, shinier appearance. Other VW features have disappeared altogether. The much-loved center that is adjustable is now stationary, the energy steering is hydraulic (in place of electric), the hood no longer stays open with gas struts, and the automobile now uses a torsion-beam rear suspension, as opposed to the four-wheel separate suspension of previous generations. The S and SE also trade brakes that are disc all four wheels for rear drum brakes. These may not be deal-breakers to consumers new to the Volkswagen ride, but devotees may feel that this Jetta has lowered its price at excessive an expense.
