The 2009 Volkswagen Jetta has good interior room and great quality, but noise can be an issue.

Edmunds says “none in this segment can touch the Jetta when it comes to sheer refinement.” Automobile adds, “It also feels very solid and more expensive than most of its main competition—which, in fact, it is.” When first sitting inside the 2009 Volkswagen Jetta, you will notice that the interior is unexpectedly luxurious, especially for a car with its low price tag. MotherProof feels that the Jetta sports the same amount of luxury as “a car twice the price.” ConsumerGuide concurs, praising the 2009 Jetta’s quality as “among the best in class.” TheCarConnection.com notes that throughout the interior, switches work smoothly, and grab handles are well damped, giving it an upscale feel.

The 2009 Volkswagen Jetta is a roomy sedan, with a tall ceiling. It gives occupants more room to stretch their legs, bodies, and necks than the average compact, and it has a cavernous 16-cubic-foot trunk with fold-down rear seats for even more storage. “Shoulder, hip, head and legroom is increased front and rear compared to previous Jettas, with the added rear legroom especially noticeable to back-seat-riding adults,” says Automedia. The trunk itself is “surprisingly spacious” at 16 cubic feet, Automedia adds.

Several reviewers find the 2009 Jetta to be noisy on the highway, reaching a decibel level that Autoblog refers to as not “unbearably noisy, but with the level of interior refinement, [they] just expected to hear less of the outside world.” Aside from the road noise, ConsumerGuide considers the ride quality to be “jiggly, thumpy, and borderline harsh on all but smooth roads.”

Conclusion

The 2009 Volkswagen Jetta has a luxurious interior and plenty of room for four adults, but noise is a common complaint.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
