2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6M)
I had never owned a front wheel drive, or a diesel or a Volkswagen. I'm sold! The 6-speed manual shifts very smoothly and the engine has plenty of torque. It handles great - not much torque steer. I'm 6'4" and am very comfortable on longer trips - even with the sunroof I have plenty of headroom. Huge trunk. The fit and finish couldn't be better. The safety features were a real selling point too. All that and 40 mpg. A lot of car for the money!
