As an owner of an 84 300D Turbo Diesel Benz for over 10 years, I knew it would be worth waiting for the 09 Jetta TDI. Two weeks after purchasing my Loyal Edition, I remain extremely satisfied. This car has amazing torque output! I can feel the quiet diesel engine purring under the hood as it speeds effortlessly down the road. The firm ride adds to the feel that I'm driving a tamed beast! Months of research convinced me that no other car gives you the value the TDI offers. At an average of 44.7 mpg on the highway this past weekend, I am convinced this is an unbeatable deal that will last for years to come.
Seamless DSG transmission, incredible fuel efficiency, AWESOME sound system with MP3/6-CD changer, blue & red nighttime lights on the dashboard, leatherette feels like real leather (it's easier to clean), very high safety rating, 236 lbs. of torque at 1750-2750 rpm (that's ALL the time)! Amazing car!
The armrest could be wider and extend a bit further. Sometimes I'm afraid that I'm gonna break it. Other than that, no other complaints so far!
