2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)
This is our third TDI and first sedan. We still have an 05 wagon but will be trading for a new sport wagon in late spring of 09. Our 03 wagon saved my wife's life when she was T-boned and ended up upside down 100 yards down the road. Not a scratch, a very safe car.
The 6 speed auto is fun though if you are fuel conscious you will not overly use it's sport feature, but man you fly when you do. Like the satellite radio, and the display is classic volks. Moon roof, cargo space, fit and finish with leg room to spare even in the rear seats. engine is mouse quiet.
have had problems with the brakes locking the rear end up when you set the parking brake on very cold(below 25 degrees F) nights. An issue in Maine so I don't set my parking brake on cold nights anymore. VW should look into this. Fuel economy is not as good as pre 06 but 42-43 mpg at 70 mph, excels.
