2009 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen SE 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
I have driven this car for about 6,000 miles since purchase. Recorded each fill-up since purchase & getting an honest 25 mpg city & 31 mpg highway with the automatic transmission. My Sportwagen is very versatile with comfortable seating & ride. Handling is excellent with little or no sway in sharp turns or nose diving upon hard braking. White paint subject to temporary stains with some brands of gasoline. Stains do fade away
Transmission is smooth & love the "manual shifting" mode along with the "S" mode of the automatic. Makes it fun to drive ... when no cops are around.
Interior needs to be jazzed up a bit. Some faux wood trim would be nice on the SE. An instant mpg indicator would be nice on the drivers inst. panel.
