2006 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)
Great car. One of the few cars to get better than EPA estimated mileage. Actually the EPA was way off and even further off with their new testing. EPA est was 36/42. We have averaged 41.1 mpg and it does not see the highway that often. We got over 49 mpg on one trip with 4 passengers and luggage! Has been extremely reliable.
Number one, the engine and the mileage! Driver's memory seat. Heated seats. Multifunction display.
Slightly more rear seat room and actually less trunk room! That is very doable. Go with Continental Extreme Contact tires!
