2011 Volkswagen Jetta TDI: Agree and Disagree
November 08, 2011
I agree with Donna D. that the Jetta TDI's interior has a lot of hard-touch surfaces. And I also agree that the leather-ish material on the Jetta's seats can be particularly sticky on hot summer days, especially when wearing shorts.
But, as I drove from Santa Monica to Dana Point yesterday, I realized I disagree that the Jetta is actually an uncomfortable car. The front seats have impressively plush cushions, while the seatbacks have ample lateral support for the (albeit limited) cornering forces the Jetta can attain. And the ride is plenty smooth for highway duty.
