Pros

Monsoon Audio. BBS rims and a sport-tuned suspension

Cons

Needs a little more omph.

Wolfsberg Is Where Its At — The Wolfsberg Edition Jetta is exactly what a Jetta should be. A four door sedan with a tight suspension and a monsoon audio system to lure the driver to go on a cruise. Even though the Jetta is front-wheel drive the sport-tuned suspension was toght enough to make it feel sporty.

It's A Good Car With Quirks — I heard that these cars have electrical issues and my car has lived up to the reputation. It's little things here and there, but a hassle nevertheless.

Great Vehilce Love Needed — I have grown up on VW's. I have always enjoyed there pep and thrilling driving experience. The fit and finish of this vehicle is bar none the best in it's class. Car has never left me anywhere and while very expensive to fix it doesn't need to be fixed a lot.
