2009 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6M)


Review

We test drove a 2009 Jetta TDI wagon to compare it to our 2002 TDI wagon. Our 2002 gets mileage almost 10 mpg higher than the 2009. Fit and finish are about the same. With diesel now lower priced than gas here in our state, and teh difference in mileage, we will keep running our 2002 for a long time to come. After VW screwed up and lowered the mileage, find yourself a 2002 or 2003 TDI diesel if you can and buy that instead. They command a huge price premium in our area being they are so much better than the 2009 models.


Favorite Features

none


Suggested Improvements

Put the engine and running gear from the 2002/2003 back into the Jetta TDI and reclaim the extra 10 mpg on the highway

2009 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6M)


Review

Love this Wagon, and have found new features while using it on a road trip. One BIG problem is that the seats hug your back and don't let your lower back rest normally onto the seat. It almost squeezes your upper back and doesn't allow for proper breathing. Besides that, very happy with the my VW and would recommend it to anyone.


Favorite Features

Power outlet to charge gizmos


Suggested Improvements

Seats to fit people with bog shoulders and lumbar support.

Review

The car is great! It handles like a sportscar with good acceleration. It is smooth a high speeds. Lots of cargo space with the rear seats that fold down flat. Decent fuel economy averaging 35-39 mpg depending on speeds.


Favorite Features

Upgraded stereo is awesome! The sound system is great. The heated seats is also a good feature.


Suggested Improvements

Steering wheel controls for the stereo would be Nice!

Review

This car is terrific. The range is525 miles per tank, and I'm getting over 40 miles per gallon highway and 34 city. Comfortable seating, plenty of cargo space, and I couldn't be happier

Review

This is my first new car in a long time after driving vans/mini-vans for the past 15 years. Handles great and very good acceleration when you want it. Feels real solid and sporty. I have 3900 miles on it and have been averaging 36 mpg. I am hoping that will improve in the summer to make up for the .80-1.00 more per gallon over gas.


Favorite Features

Handling, performance, style, cargo space.


Suggested Improvements

Radio controls on the steering wheel. Rear wiper switch is finicky. Did not start in 20 below, but my wife's 99 Sienna did!
