Volkswagen seems to be more careful in issuing a car if they do not want a bad reputation because of that car. This is what happened with the 2011 VW Jetta that is marketed in the United States. Consumer Reports magazine gave a poor rating of this sedan. “The new Jetta is unimpressive. In an effort to bring the car’s starting price down, VW cheapened the previous Jetta’s interior and suspension, making it less sophisticated and compromising handling,” said David Champion, a senior director of Consumer Reports’ Auto Test Center in Connecticut.
Consumer Reports magazine said that the 2011 VW Jetta which uses 5-cylinder engine, even its have coarse-sounding. So the VW Jetta impression as a sedan which is nimble, agile, and has well handling is destroyed. Although Volkswagen has lowered the price of the 2011 VW Jetta fuses up to $ 1,740 more than its predecessor (the sedan is sold at $ 15,995). However, the low price makes the 2011 VW Jetta quality decreases.
Consumer Reports magazine has long been recognized as an independent magazine that perform a thorough and comprehensive test on all cars sold in the United States. So the magazine’s negative assessment of the 2011 VW Jetta is something that is not supposed to happen. Volkswagen sedan should immediately fix it if you do not want to lose the market in the United States.
