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


Bought new in 2011. Really liked the look of the car and the performance of the car. Gas mileage was superb. Was a good car until about 25,000 miles then problems started happening. The AC compressor got out. The radio had to be replaced 4 times. There was also a short in the ignition system. Thankfully they were all covered under the warranty, but it was a pain to have to take it in to the dealership. Also the DSG transmission is the worst.

Trunk Space Front leg room Gas Mileage

Worst Features

The DSG Transmission. At first I really like the DSG transmission, but the more miles that were put on the car the worse it got. At around 20-30 MPH, if you werent pressing on the gas very much, the car would start "bucking" acting like it was searching for a gear. VW calls this a "characteristic" of the transmission, which is ridiculous.
