2nd impress: 37,500 miles
By ezshift5 on


2013 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6M)


2013 VW JSW TDI 6M - - - -

White with Cornsilk interior. Lots of room. Sturdy VTEX (that's VW for leatherette) interior.

Has a clutch, six speed manual shift transmission and the top three gears are overdrives.................

Fuel economy for 37k + miles (per Fuelly.com) is 44.1 MPG

Driving the car is easy from steering, braking and acceleration (236 lb/feet of torque 1750 - 2200 RPM) standpoints.

Fold down the rear seats and there is the same cargo capacity as my old1982 VW diesel pickup!!

Altho' the electronic compass was delivered with a compass that read S when heading N,
the very capable dealership in California's capital provided a quick fix.

As of this update, there has been one repair (covered under factory 3 year/36,000 warranty): EGR/intercooler split seal

3400 mile update for this 2013 VW JSW 6M would show average MPG - as computed at Fuelly.com - at just under 44 MPG. Driving is aprx 65% highway. No problems - the North versus South compass reading excepted (and fixed by dealership) - with the vehicle to date.

10,150 miles now: 2013 VW JSW 6M continues with but one issue - it was delivered with the electronic compass 180 degrees out of phase (fixed by dealer - who recently completed the 10k first service in one hour). Fuelly.com currently shows 44.5 MPG for 10,000 miles of aprx 65% HWY driving. For $25,750 (prior tax, license and dork fee), this nice looking, fuel efficient and easy driving wagon continues to be a real positive.
