Never thought I would LOVE an efficient car!

2011 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6M)


I'm a car nut and I proclaim this THE PERFECT CAR!! The TDI motor #1 is why I love this car. I can drive 600 miles on a single tank, consistent 35-43 MPG at normal speeds. I don't baby my car, I like to have fun while I drive and yet it still gets 35+ mpg. On a weekend road trip it got 43mpg at 80mph. #2 is the Wagon and roof rack. A recent road trip to Steamboat Springs my wife and I had 2 road bikes inside and 2 mtn bikes on the rack plus gear. So flexible!! #3 This car is proof that selling my truck that was costing $300+/month gas was the right decision. I enjoy driving it more, it cut my gas usage by 1/3, and it's plenty flexible to transport cargo and toys.

Favorite Features

-TDI motor and 6 speed manual are a great match...I love having a manual transmission...so much fun! -The huge panoramic sunroof is awesome, kids love it! -Good sound system with iPod, MP3, and SD card. -Fun to Drive!! -Wagon is super flexible for cargo and toys -Roof rack is strong and easy to attach racks to -Interior styling is very attractive -It's literally THE PERFECT CAR

Suggested Improvements

Fix the mini-van looking rear end, it's too bubbly for my taste, but not terrible. Better blue-tooth, it's missing a lot of features, but performs good. The sunshade on the panoramic sunroof should be more than a sunshade, it should also be a sound barrier to reduce wind noise from using a roof rack system. It's too easy to stall the motor...kind of weird since it's a diesel and all. Not available in AWD. Need additional diesel motor options in the USA
