I bought a 2010 Jetta Sportwagen Diesel with 6 speed Std. Transmission in Nov. 2009. I was looking for a vehicle that a) Good for carrying a bicycle (my hobby) b) Good fuel economy c) Fun to drive.
This car is very good on all counts and no problems so far.
Excellent fuel economy - after break in typically 41 - 42 mpg I can put my bicycle right in the back without removing the front wheel. Much faster acceleration when needed than the Civic I had been driving.
The climate controls are not too clear and the symbols are much too small for me.
