2011 Volkswagen Jetta TDI: Seeing Stars

July 18, 2011

Jetta TDI crack1.jpg That thing you see between the cars in this photo isn't a UFO. It's a crack in the windshield of our Volkswagen Jetta TDI, and it happened on the way back from Vegas, after Fuel Sipper Smackdown IV. I never saw the object that hit the windshield, but it made a loud pop.

I've driven the car for over 200 miles since the impact and so far the crack has not spread. We will monitor it closely and get it fixed if it worsens.
