2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)
Seriously folks, you must have to get this Dealer Warranty replaced. Our 2.0L TDI has a Mechtronic Controller Unit that sits atop the DSG Tranny. This Unit controls and puts a stop to the jerky and hesitation. Palisades VW in New York replaced mine last summer and WOW it has made a significant difference in the fuel economy, quickness, and safety. Now, when I press the pedal lightly, the TDI shifts smooooth and quick. Also, when slowing down, no more jerks. At 58 MPH I get 52 MPG with the AC blowing cold. In the city, at 45 MPH I get 60 + MPG. Seriously, do not let the dealers tell you otherwise. We spent extra money for the TDI for a reason. Make the call and beat the BMW driving uphill.
The 2009 VW TDI has features not found on the 2010 or newer. Basically we have a Luxury Passat with a Compressor Turbo Diesel power-plant. The Air Conditioner is Electronic without the use of belts. Here in Florida we have a dirt that is named "sugar sand." 4 wheel drive trucks get stuck in this sand. My TDI is a champion, its motor and electronic traction controllers went to work and drove the TDI right out onto pavement. Sitting in the cockpit, everything I need is at my fingertips. At night, the interior lights up like an airplane cockpit.
I had hoped that this was exactly the build of the German made VW and no the Mexican VW. There is a real difference in the paint and body metal. But that is why we pay to have a Comprehensive insurance policy, insurance against dings and dents and paint scrapes and headlight plastics that go bad with time. A trailer hitch to pull a small boat would be a nice extra. Uhual will install for $400.
