2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)
First volkswagen. Wanted high mileage without the hybrid junk. What we got was a very powerful car that sips diesel so cleanly you cannot tell it's a diesel by sound or smell. Amazing car that is so fun to drive, comfortable, and handles like a european sports car should. You can drive all day on longer trips without fatigue or discomfort. I can't think of a single thing I'd change and so far at 7000 miles not one issue-better than the Honda it replaced.
Diesel engine power makes it so easy to motor around town. On highway and in the mountains there is no hill that slows it down. Fuel mileage is fantastic. On flat highway roads, loaded, it tickles 50mpg on the continuous readout(full passenger load/luggage). A/C excellent. Did I say we love this car
