2010 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan Wolfsburg Edition 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

This car is a great value. It is supremely comfortable for folks over 6' tall, only Volvos have more comfortable seats. The interior is very upscale for a $23k car. The new audio and climate controls, and new gauge cluster are easy and add a touch of class. The power and handling are incredible too. I never thought comfort and performance could be had in spades, together in the same car. Averaging 30+ MPG combined driving with a lead foot. Love the thoughtful features like climate system going into recirculate mode when you use the windshield washer or go into reverse.. prevents fumes from entering the car. There is also tons or room for a car this size, and a 16 cubic ft trunk


Best Features

MPG, overall comfort, Bluetooth (used for incoming and outgoing calls), luxurious interior, interior space, trunk space, Power, the muted turbo hiss from the waste gate, clutch engagement, Audio system, heated VTek seats. Resale value


Worst Features

Trip computer like the TDI, larger gas tank, stronger brakes, another 12 volt outlet up front so I can have my GPS and cell phone plugged in at the same time.

Review

The 2.0Tsi engine has a known "popping sound" at between 2000 and 3000 RPM. Many owners complain of the noise during acceleration, sounds like "pop rocks in a can" - I thought it sounded like engine knocking. VW confirms it is the wastegate on the turbo, but says it is normal. Along with the noise, I find it annoying that they have known about the noise for at least three years yet have not fixed it. Test drive with a purpose and make sure you can stand the noise before buying, because you are stuck with it once you take the keys.


Best Features

Styling is great, handling and acceleration are excellent. Sound system is quite good.


Worst Features

Fix turbo wastegate noise. Reduce road noise into cabin.
