One-year update on Jetta TDI
By PaulTD on
Vehicle2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)
ReviewAfter 16 months, 22,000 miles. Paint is very soft, hood has numerous chips. Idiot dealer response-"do you drive a lot on the freeway?". Rear brakes overheat frequently, 50% worn with front brakes virtually unused. Idiot dealer response-"that's the way the car is designed". Just received notice from Volkswagen of possible premature wear in transmission, along with extension of the transmission warranty to 100,000 miles, but apparently only on the particular part that is wearing out prematurely. Steering requires more effort than I would like. Seats well shaped but hard. Cost of diesel consistently $.30 higher than gasoline. Good points: excellent fuel mileage (38 average, up to 54 On
Best FeaturesFuel mileage, handling, turbo boost, styling, interior quality, satellite radio.
Worst FeaturesTougher paint, easier steering, softer seats, dealers who don't employ idiots, 100,000 mile powertrain warranty.
