Vehicle2013 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI 4dr Wagon w/Sunroof, Navigation (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)
ReviewIt is as other reviewers say, the car is a pleasure to drive. Road handling and braking feel very good. The interior details have good fitment and visual appeal. Controls are simple and uncluttered. Another reviewer says he chose the top end with Nav (which is actually a step down on radio/entertainment features, be aware of that) somewhat because it is combined with keyless entry/start, and I was motivated that way as well. Diesel MPG exceeds expectations. Note: stowing rear seat cushions to get a flat cargo space has a feeling of flimsiness about it, and required removal of rear headrests for this operation is a very inconvenient procedure.
Best FeaturesInterior and exterior appearance, excellent TDI mileage, superior fitment and materials in most respects.
Worst FeaturesStowing rear seats is a cringeworthy affair and should be improved. Offer keyless entry/start outside the top model.

Agree that pulling the read headrests are a pain. One thing I do to make it easier is don't push them all the way down when replacing. The last car I had (sedan) had the same procedure needed. On that car I got a little epoxy and filled in the indents that lock the headrests in.Report it
