My wife and I have been looking at the
Jetta Wagon for some time. I really
wanted the TDI, however, California is
run by eco-crazed politicians who do not
permit the sale of any TDI version of
VW. In any event, we settled (lucky for
us) for the 1.8T. This is the same
engine in the Audi A4 but tuned down for
marketing purposes. We also opted for
the Sport and Winter packages which make
for a great ride even on cold mornings.
The leather seats are very nice and firm
(which happens to be my preference). I
will switch to synthetic oil after the
first interval to help the warmer
running turbo engine last longer. We
love this car to death.
The car is made in Germany. Interior and
Exterior styling and engineering.
Leather seats with infinite recline.
Huge rear cargo space for a compact
wagon. Sport and Winter package. More
than enough power from the engine.
Airbags, so many I think the car
inflates in an accident;)
Include the First Aid Kit and Hazard
Triangle with the vehicle rather than
selling them as an accessory even though
specific space is provided in the rear
cargo area. Better license plate frames.
Synthetic oil from the start.
