2006 Jetta TDI -- Best car purchase ever
By Gary on

Vehicle

2006 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)

Review

At the time of purchase in August 2006, ours was one of only 3 remaining Package One models in the area equipped with the 6-speed automatic. The EPA highway mileage rating is 42 mpg, but our best ever was over 48! Though the 1.9 L turbo diesel is rated at only 100 horsepower, it feels to have every bit as much "get up and go" as our 2003 Passat with all that inherent diesel torque. The transmission is flawless and with all of those gears, it knows precisely when and where it needs to shift. The car attracts a fair amount of attention in terms of it's refined German styling and it's a hoot to drive. The German designers tend to build in a firm ride - not soft or spongy. 40,000 mi. no problems.

Best Features

The styling will prove to be classic. It seems every other automaker is copying as much as they can. The car feels incredibly solid and VW does a nice interior leaving nothing out. Killer sound system and, of course, those blue dash lights at night.

Worst Features

I'd have the seats softened just a bit. Otherwise, I think VW is right on the mark.
