The Volkswagen Jetta has long been one of the best cars for bad credit, as its affordable price tag offers drivers a wide range of amenities and solid performance. The 2011 edition was recently given a 7.7/10 rating by MSN Autos.
The three main pros that the news source attributed to the Jetta were an "attractive exterior design," a more spacious interior thanks to the longer wheelbase and a low price making the vehicle a "tempting buy." The compact sedan begins between $14,995 and $24,195 and is available in 11 different trims.
Under the hood, drivers can expect a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 115 hp and 125 lb-ft torque. There is also an option for a 2.5-liter five-cylinder motor, which generates up to 170 hp and 177 lb-ft torque. In terms of fuel economy, the Jetta receives between 24 city and 34 highway miles per gallon.
Features of the car include leatherette upholstery, chrome accents. six-speaker sound system, remote keyless entry, a navigation system and much more.
Those who are considering purchasing a Jetta, but are saddled with a poor credit score, should try applying for a bad credit auto loan.
