2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Loyal Edition 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6M)


I was considering hybrids, but heard about this one coming out. I'm glad I waited. It has tremendous acceleration and great handling. The computer showed that I got 44.3 mpg on a 300 mile trip. I'm still over half a tank plus I drove around all day today. The engine is quiet and clean. I've seen older tdis spouting dirty smoke, but this one does not. There is also a minimal amount of noise. If you are inside, you can't hear it at all at idle. When you punch the throttle, this thing takes off. A lot of push. I notice it especially around 20-30 mpg like trying to get on freeway. It is peppy! The materials are as good as the bmw 650i we own. Just don't confuse the fuel!

Favorite Features

1) No trade offs. fast and fuel efficient. 2) The materials used are of good quality. 3) Free service first 3 years 4) High resale. 06 tdis selling for a little under their original msrp recently. 5) Transmission: It shifts well. 6) Folding Rear Seats 7) Stereo on loyal is great

Suggested Improvements

The DSG transmission is an automated stick. At low speeds it gets a little choppy. This car loves long straight stretches of acceleration. AC could be colder. Our old LR3 was much better. Styling a little bland. I don't care for the chrome grill. I like the black grill of other VW models
