A New Diesel Convert!
By Bill D. in L.A. on
2010 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)
Looking for a combination of good gas mileage, sportiness and quality is not easy. However, the Jetta TDI hits on all 3! I love this car. 33 MPG in L.A. traffic and downtown and over 40 MPG on the freeway, all with a brand new engine. The TDI really makes me enjoy driving again. The suspension is a bit bit stiff and the steering is very responsive. The interior finish is equivalent to a much more expensive car. Love the new white and red dash instrument lights. The neon blue in older VW's can lead to vertigo (kidding). The folks at VW have hit a home run with this car. Bought through the the AAA program. Great price and dealers will still negotiate too.
Steering wheel mounted audio and on- board computer controls, built-in bluetooth for my Blackberry, Sirius radio, touchscreen sound system, Blue Graphite Metallic color, and that purring turbo diesel engine.
Fog lights, autodimming mirror with homelink. Both are available aftermarket, but not really necessary.
