2010 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)
What car gets better than the posted EPA averages in both city and hwy mileage? Jetta TDI, of course. I had a diesel Rabbit back in the late 70's but this car is light years ahead of that. Solid, peppy, quiet and fast. We constantly play "beat the mgps" and post our success to the web. You can get in the high 60's for mpgs if you go easy on the gas pedal but when you need acceleration even up a hill you got it.
Quiet solid ride, doors, seats, radio and mileage. Lots of info via the electronic console. Great steering wheel feel, fantastic tiptronic transmission.
Trunk key hole and a place to put your hand when closing the truck, something like a chromed lip on the outside - there's a grip on the inside but it's awkward. Cheaper NAV option, chromed wheel mags instead of brushed, door panel ding guard strips. Sun visor could have more pull out options.
