2006 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)
I have owned two VW beetle TDIs and my 2006 new Jetta has simply been the best car I've ever owned. And I've owned them all from BMWs, to Toyotas, you name it. The Jetta diesel has turned out to be wonderful. A mid- sized luxury car that doesn't look like a tunerville trolly (prius) and yet for me averages 43 mpg. Last fill up I got 49 mpg. Highly Recommend everyone get one of these . . comfort, reliability and excellent miles per gallon. Quiet and handles just like a gas car, no smells, no waiting for glow lights, VW's finest engineering. I still have 40% of my brakes left on original set at 106,000 miles and 4 years later.
Tiptronic auto transmission. Can shift into manual for hills, etc.
