Bought my Jetta just before the fuel
crunch hit. Had been driving a Ford
Diesel Excursion (yuk!) First trip
with the Jetta averaged 45mpg 3400 mile
round trip (five people and car top
carrier). Improving steadily since.
One recent "all highway cruise control
speed limit inflate the tires to
maximum inflation" run I got 54 mpg.
No kidding! Comfortable and pleasing to
be in - we created a mini SUV by adding
a seat and seat belt in the rear. Put
a aero ski car top carrier for
luggage. When will other SUVer's
figure this out?
Fuel milage and diesel price.
Comfrotable ride. Great standard sound
system. Extremely quiet - wouldn't
know it was a diesel. Good acceleration.
Hopefully low sulfer diesel will soon
be readily available. It would be
great to have satellite radio as an
option. I added one myself later.
Need extra cup holder in rear. Second
one in front is awkward to reach when
center arm rest in use.
