2009 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen S 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
This is my second VW, I had a Passat in 95. So far I am loving it really for the money it is a steal, when you look at the interior fit and finish, engine performance! And the driving experience? NICE, I love the euro feel handling and electric assist steering is great feel. It also has a very tight turning circle which no one has mentioned. I have yet to hit 1K miles but am averaging 24 MPG combined...I would think that will get a bit better when the motor breaks in.
Controls layout, COOL nighttime dash display, steering assist, 6-speed with 3 way options, lots of room for my roadbike in the rear without taking a wheel off the bike.
Lousy daytime radio display, can barely see on a sunny day and not at all with my sunglasses on... front seats should adjust the same way!!
