Perfect...Except "Where's the 48MPG"...???
By kksdad on
2013 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid SEL Premium 4dr Sedan (1.4L 4cyl Turbo gas/electric hybrid 7AM)
Our Jetta Hybrid will be a year old next month, my wife's the primary driver and she loves it, but, I LOVE it more, and enjoy driving it so much whenever she "lets me"...!!!
don't be fooled by the fact this is a "hybrid", VW has "done it right" with great handling, performance and fuel economy (that cold be BETTER..more details below...) for a car that we are happy to own and have NO regrets in buying.
Our 16 yo daughter "can't wait" to get her hands on it when she starts to drive..."in her dreams"....!!!
I was so impressed, if not surprised, by the great acceleration our Jetta Hybird has, combined with excellent handling; praise you wouldn't normally expect given to any hybrid in this price range.
Matched up with the 7-sp transmission, this car gets you were you need to go, and gets you there, as fast and quickly as you need it to....enough said...!!!
now, if only it got the excellent gas milage that it advertises...!!!
we know it could be OUR fault, with our different driving styles, BUT, on our 800+ mile round trip to Disneyland and back this summer, we barely averaged 40mpg...well below what they advertised and what we might have expected.
disappointed, YES, but not enough to regret our purchase, all the "pluses" way out weight
this one "minus"....!!!
