2011 Volkswagen Jetta Long-Term Road Test

2011 Volkswagen Jetta TDI: But...

May 25, 2011


As you've know doubt heard, James Riswick does not like our Jetta TDI. And I can't say that I disagree with him one bit, but...

... it's the most comfortable car I've driven in a year.

Yes, really.

In a rare alignment of the ergonomic planets, the Jetta TDI has managed to fit me so well that I forgot all of James' pointed criticisms. I'm not saying it's sumptuous, but the combination of the seat, the position of it, and the steering wheel are so agreeable to me that I would not hesitate to buy this car if I had a commute of any serious distance. It's that good.

Yes, the interior is still dour and more than a little sparse, but while I was driving it, I never noticed.

Wonders never cease.
