2010 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)
We picked up this vehicle on Oct. 1st 2009. It is our first VW and we love it. I have a long commute to work and needed a fuel efficient vehicle that will last 2-300,000 miles so we bought a diesel. I drive 90 miles round trip to work. 70% 65 mph up and down hills and 30% city driving. After 30,000 miles we are averaging 42.5 mpg. Winter driving and fuel blend owers the mpg's but the summer is great. Last 5 tanks have all been over 45 mpg and 600+ miles/tank. We've taken it on road trips to see family in Minneapolis and we get 52.1 on our trip. Our best tank was 50.7! So far there have been no problems and we are satisfied thus far.
Mileage, styling (I think the 2010 are better looking that the 2011), sunroof, quiet ride, interior, touch screen satellite radio (after the first year you can usually talk Sirius into giving you a deal to keep it going), the wife likes the heated seats I don't use them
Drives seat could be more comfortable. I spend 1-2 hours in the car everyday and the seat can get uncomfortable, support pillar is large and obstructive-if you are taller and have the seat back quite a ways it's hard to look over your shoulder, head rests are a bit big and don't fit my neck
