Economical wagon
By Davey on
Vehicle
2009 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)
Review
This car is best on the highway, where it gets great mileage and the firm seats remain comfortable for the whole trip. But as a city car I'm not so sure. DSG transmission can be annoying. At 30MPH it wants to be in 5th with engine @ 1100 RPMs. You can shift it yourself though. Mileage drops from 45 on the highway to 25 in the city. Nav /radio system has glitches and sound quality is mediocre. Cargo space is really impressive for a car this size.
Favorite Features
Diesel engine, panoramic sunroof (which magically lets in light but not heat), durable quality interior materials, lovely paint color, cargo space
Suggested Improvements
A transmission program somewhere between D and Sport mode, leather or cloth as an option (vinyl still smells terrible after a few months). Improve the nav system interface, update the maps, and fix the weird bugs
