Review: 2011 Volkswagen Jetta SEL

… a significant and obvious drop in the interior quality – even the non-VW faithful will notice how cheap the door panels look …

Volkswagen has long attempted to make hay from the perception that German automakers build driver's cars, but the 2011 Jetta is less so in any of the currently available U.S. trims

the seats are still widely adjustable, though less so compared to past Jettas

Electric power steering is numb and strangely weighted, like there's a coupling made of rubber bands somewhere.

Drivers looking for the old Jetta formula of near-premium feel for near-economy price will find the 2011 Jetta is Volkswagen's New Coke, though others will remind you that the updated formula actually tasted better. This new Jetta is a different flavor that appears to be more tasty to shoppers, despite leaving a bad taste in the mouths of the Jetta faithful.
