...and conversely, there are many people that like turbos and don't mind an engine that requires premium. I happen to be one of them. I've been driving cars that require premium for the last 19 years:
1987 VW Golf GT - 8-valve 1.8 liter, 10:1 compression - premium fuel
1997 VW Vento (Jetta) - 8-valve 2.0 liter + APR Chip upgrade, 10:1 compression - premium fuel
2003 Wolfsburg Jetta - 20-valve 1.8T - premium fuel
I'll pass on the 07 Wolfsburg Jetta and hang on to the Vento
and the 03 Wolfsburg...

Sure, but they already have two turbo versions of the Jetta...2.0T and GLI.
#1325 of 1441 High RPM during startup
Dec 15, 2006 (9:52 am)
Sorry is this questions sounds dumb, but this is my first compact sedan and VW. I have a 2006 Jetta 2.5 and why I first start the car (mornings and after work) the RPMs go to about 6000 for approximately 10 seconds then goes back to normal. Is this this suppose to happen?

Many of the new cars will do that if you touch the throttle when starting.. No matter how cold or hot.. You should never touch the throttle when starting the car.. The computer does it all.. But if you are not touching it.. Then 6000 does sound high.. 3,000 or so is about as high as I have seen on mine.. And when it starts the engine will sound funny and much like its running very high RPM.. That is the computer program to get the exhaust warm fast.. Also after it starts you will hear a clicking noise.. That is the electric air pump to help heat the Cat Converter..

Thank you for your response. I made an error while writing my original post. The RPM is around 2,000 not 6K.

I had the same problem but TWICE! Right around 2500 miles the front passenger hubcap came off my 2006 jetta on the highway. So I got another one and fell off the SAME DAY it was put on. Pretty lame on VW's part if you ask me!
#1329 of 1441 trouble with 2005.5 new jetta!!!
Dec 26, 2006 (2:53 am)
i bought a 2005.5 new jetta with the 5 cyl engine, now i really do love the car and i made the front look like a GLI and the car is the champaign color, it looks sexy! i also put the eibach springs that vw sells for it and a custom intake system so the car sounds and handles amazingly. i put the springs on because i bottoms the car out really hard trying to catch up to an elise (lol) and it dented my transmission pan with broke the vale body with in turn caused little metal chunks to get into the gearbox and it chewed up the gears. it is a 6 spd auto with tiptronic and sport modes so insurance covered it for $6,500 replaced at YBH Volkswagen in Edgmont,PA. but ever since i got it back its been shifting hard and i brought it back to the dealership b/c since they fixed it they warrenty it and 3 trips they couldnt find anything wrong. then it finally slid out of gear again and i got stranded then the check engine light comes on!!!! so the brought it in and VW will not cover it under warrenty and neither will insurance cuz there is no damage. VW says they will not cover it cuz there are no other new jettas in the world with transmission problems...(b/s) so what should i do?? should i report is as a lemon or sue VW or what? also has anybody else had transmission problems with the 2.5's? and how do u put pictures in? i want to stick in a picture of my jetta.

Nothing as bad as what you seem to have had, but we had intermittent rough shifting, mostly 1-2 shift and sometimes 2-3. Dealer was able to replicate the problem and they replaced the transmission's valve body under warranty at about 10,000 mi.
So there is at least one Jetta that has had a problem with the 6 speed transmission. It sounds like the real issue is your dealer is going to have to replicate the problem first.

I have the same rough shifting from 1-2 with my 2006 Jetta. I have booked another service appointment but the first time they couldn't replicate the problem during the test drive. Did the rough shifting problem get corrected with the replacement of the transmission valve body?

Yes, valve body replacement seems to have taken care of our problem.
