The VW Jetta TDI gets great mileage,
but that is where the greatness ends.
On the highway the ride is tolerable
but around town it sounds and feels
like I’m driving a “Big-Rig”.It gets
louder the more I drive it. Not only is
the motor loud, but when I’m stopped I
can feel my entire body vibrate. At
speeds from 0-40 there are rattles in
the dash and all the windows squeak
constantly. The dealer says this
is all within the manufacturer’s
specifications. Essentially no back
seat. Cup holder location is
ridiculous. Unless you live for 40-mpg
stay away from this poorly engineered,
poorly constructed automobile.
Sound insulation, quieter engine,
better cup holder.
