“I love the experience that it’s truly centered towards the driver.”
And Bert’s family has owned many Jettas. Plus other VW’s too. Even so, Bert had quite a bit of praise for the all-new 2019 Volkswagen Jetta.

Jetta Review From Loma Linda, CA
Bert: We’ve owned several Jettas, I love the experience that it’s truly centered towards the driver. And it’s obvious when you set down in the car that it’s about the experience of the driver.
I love the customized, having it to the fob, and you move in and out from the seats, etc, you can set there and use that. I love the fact that they went a little bigger with the car.
“…first of all, I’m really jealous. I liked the test drive.”
Tom: Welcome to iDriveSoCal, the podcast all about mobility from the automotive capital of the United States, Southern California.
Tom Smith here and we are at the Jetta launch party, the 2019 Jetta launch party at Ontario Volkswagen in the Los Angeles suburb of Ontario, California.
I am joined by Bert from Loma Linda who just got back from a test drive of the 2019 Jetta. Bert, what’d you think?
Bert: Well, first of all, I’m really jealous. I liked the test drive.
Driver-Focused Jetta Cockpit
It’s a wonderful car. We’ve owned several Jettas, I also own an eGolf, and just really enjoyed the drive. More than anything, I loved how the experience of driving the car was centered towards the driver.
From the dash, from the controls, from the way even the center console sort of leaned in, that was my favorite thing about it.
“I love the fact that they went a little bigger with the car.”
Tom: Feels like the cockpit kinda feeling to it.
Bert: It did, it did.
We had a 2014 Jetta, we have a 2016 Jetta, and I have a 2017 eGolf.
And the controls, the, in the eGolf, they haven’t really brought, until this Jetta model, that technology and that look and feel back down to the Jetta line. Wonderful.
Jetta’s Digital Cockpit Review
I love the interaction, the UI’s great, and I love the customized way you can tie everything back to a key fob. It’s very helpful.
Tom: So the key fob, I agree with you 100%.
It’s a lot of car for the money.
And I was just chatting with your wife. I mentioned that I have a six-month-old son. And you guys have a nine-month-old daughter.
But, getting in and out of the vehicle, the way me and my wife experience, I’m sure it’s the same with you…
It’s like, ‘okay, I’ve gotta readjust this, readjust that, whatever.’ So the key fob thing, where we have customization for both, is fantastic. I love that.
It’s a lot of car for the money.
Bert: It is a lot of car.
Tom: One of the things that we do on iDriveSoCal when we review vehicles is top three things.
And it sounds like you’re a big enough car guy that you might be able to pull off the top three things just off the top of your head here. What are your top three things for the 2019 Jetta?
Bert From Loma Linda’s Jetta Review – Top-3
Bert: Yeah, top three things…
Driver-Focused Cockpit: I love the experience that it’s truly centered towards the driver. And it’s obvious when you set down in the car that it’s about the experience of the driver. That’s the first thing.
Multi-Driver Profiles: The second thing I love, again, the customized, having it to the fob, and you move in and out from the seats, etc, you can set there and use that.
New Bigger Design: And third, I love the fact that they went a little bigger with the car.
Tom: Alright, top three things on the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta from Bert, from Bert Chancellor from Loma Linda.
Bert: Loma Linda.
Tom: Loma Linda. And thank you for joining me.
Jetta Review Wrap – Loma Linda
Bert: Yeah, pleasure.
Tom: And the 2019 Jetta launch party here at Ontario Volkswagen. That’s Bert’s little daughter.
Bert: Yeah, that’s my daughter saying hi. Hi sweetheart!
She’s got my wife’s check card, I don’t think this is a good idea.
Tom: Uh oh. Alright, for iDriveSoCal I’m Tom Smith. Thanks for listening.
