Model Highlights

The 2007 Volkswagen Jetta is only offered as a four-door sedan, with two different engines; models designated "2.5" have a 2.5L in-line five-cylinder engine that makes 150 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque, and "2.0T" models have a 2.0L turbocharged, direct-injected in-line four-cylinder, making 200 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque. 2.0T models can accelerate to 60 miles per hour in just under seven seconds, according to VW, while also achieving EPA fuel economy ratings of up to 25 city, 32 highway. California-emissions states get cleaner PZEV versions of the 2.5 model.

The 2.5 gets a standard five-speed manual transmission, while the 2.0T gets a six-speed manual. A six-speed automatic with Tiptronic manual selection is optional on the 2.5; a six-speed manual DSG automatic--for faster gear changes--is optional on the 2.0T. The electro-mechanical steering system is also tuned for enthusiastic driving.

Standard equipment on all Jettas now includes air conditioning, cruise control, eight-way adjustable front seats, a CD sound system, and a tilt/telescope steering wheel. The base 2.5 comes with steel wheels, but the 2.5 upgrades to 16-inch alloys.

Front side-impact air bags and side-curtain air bags for front and rear outboard occupants are standard, but rear-passenger side thorax air bags are optional. Four-wheel anti-lock brakes are also standard across the line. The Electronic Stability Program (ESP) is also standard on all but the base 2.5.

Wolfsburg Edition and Sport Limited models add more luxury features with the 2.5L engine, while GLI and Fahrenheit GLI models add more performance-focused high-end features, such as alloy pedals and xenon headlamps. Top options include a navigation system, a power sunroof, an iPod adapter, an AC power outlet, and a garage door opener.


Value Writeup

With more standard equipment and a much lower price, the 2007 VW Jetta--especially the 2.5 model--stands out as a very strong value in its size class. What's more, it is also one of the most refined small sedans for the money. And with the 2.0T, the Jetta turns into a sleeper sport sedan that still returns good fuel economy.


Pros

Value for money (2.5); handling; ride and refinement; performance and fuel efficiency (2.0T).


Model News

For 2007, the big news for the Volkswagen Jetta is a very noteworthy drop in price. The Jetta's base price is cut $1400 compared with the 2006 model, yet it also has increased standard equipment, including an auxiliary input jack and cruise control. Salsa Red joint the color palette.

The diesel-powered TDI models are no longer available for 2007. A Wolfsburg Edition and a Fahrenheit GLI trim are new as well.

Component
EXTERIOR LIGHTING:HEADLIGHTS

Potential Number of Units Affected
340000

Summary
CERTAIN VEHICLES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 108, "LAMPS, REFLECTIVE DEVICES, AND ASSOCIATED EQUIPMENT." SOME VEHICLES MAY NOT HAVE HAD A REQUIRED CAP INSTALLED WHICH DISABLES THE HEADLIGHT HORIZONTAL AIM AND SOME VEHICLES MAY CONTAIN A CAP THAT DISABLES THE VERTICAL AIMING SCREW.

Consequence
INAPPROPRIATE, NON-STANDARD LIGHTING COULD REDUCE VISIBILITY OF VEHICLES AND INCREASE THE POTENTIAL FOR A CRASH.

DEALERS WILL INSPECT FOR THE PRESENCE OF A CAP IN THE SOCKET OF THE LOW BEAM HORIZONTAL AIMING SCREW AND INSTALL ONE IF MISSING, AND INSPECT FOR THE PRESENCE OF A CAP IN THE SOCKET OF THE VERTICAL AIMING SCREW AND IF PRESENT, THE CAP WILL BE REMOVED. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR ABOUT OCTOBER 31, 2007. OWNERS MAY CONTACT VW AT 1-800-822-8987.

VOLKSWAGEN RECALL NO. Q8. CUSTOMERS MAY CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153); OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV.

Component
POWER TRAIN:DRIVELINE:DRIVESHAFT

Potential Number of Units Affected
25594

Summary
VOLKSWAGEN IS RECALLING 25,594 MY 2006-2009 JETTA 5TH GENERATION EQUIPPED WITH 2.01 ENGINE. THE FASTENING SCREW CONTACT SURFACES ON THE DRIVESHAFT COVER PLATE MAY NOT HAVE BEEN MANUFACTURED TO FACTORY SPECIFICATIONS. SOME SCREWS MAY NOT HAVE BEEN TORQUED PROPERLY DURING ASSEMBLY AND COULD LOOSEN OVER TIME, CAUSING A KNOCKING SOUND WHEN THE VEHICLE IS IN MOTION. THE DRIVESHAFT SCREWS COULD LOOSEN TO THE POINT WHERE THE DRIVESHAFT DETACHES FROM THE GEARBOX.

Consequence
IF THE VEHICLE IS MOVING WHEN THIS HAPPENS, THE DETACHED DRIVESHAFT COULD CAUSE DAMAGE THE GEARBOX HOUSING. A DAMAGE GEARBOX HOUSING COULD LEAK GEARBOX OIL ONTO THE STREET AND CREATE A RISK OF A VEHICLE CRASH FOR BOTH THE DRIVER AND OTHER MOTORISTS.

DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE DRIVESHAFT SCREWS AND REPLACE THE SCREWS FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE JUNE 19, 2009. OWNERS MAY CONTACT VOLKSWAGEN AT 1-800-822-8987.

VOLKSWAGEN RECALL NO. 40J2/S4. OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
