2010 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6M)


2010 Jetta TDI; Graphite Blue, Titan Black interior; 6 spd; 17" rims. Love the styling of this car inside and out -- paint color is absolutely gorgeous. Interior fit and finish is stellar, especially for this price range. Trunk is enormous. Everything you touch feels solid and thoroughly German. Genuine leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter a nice touch. V-tex seating surfaces do get insanely hot, but they're the best synthetic leather interior pieces I've seen -- can't wait to try the heated seats in the winter. Above-average mileage around town, terrific mileage on the highway. It's not a dragster, but accelerates strongly on the highway (3rd-6th), and is quite bored at 90 mph.

Favorite Features

Interior/exterior design, trunk size, safety ratings, fuel consumption. 3rd gear is wonderful, as are 4-6. Plenty of low-end grunt and reasonably good handling (you won't mistake it for a 3-series). Make sure to pay attention to your speed, because it will keep accelerating until you get arrested.

Suggested Improvements

Turbo lag, especially in 1st and 2nd. If you don't rev it to 4k in 1st, it's like sticking your foot in a bucket of Vaseline in 2nd, until the turbo kicks in at about 2500. Pretty significant road noise with 17" rims (low-profile tires). Dealer experience was/is abysmal, but the car sold itself.
