2011 Volkswagen Jetta TDI: Tranquility

September 08, 2011

Don't get me wrong: I like manual transmissions. But they're no fun on the 405 Freeway at 4 p.m., when you do the herky-jerky for 27 miles. That's why I decided on the Jetta for the commute yesterday. For all its demerits and decontenting, I like the car's unfussiness and its zen (for lack of a better word). I feel calm when I'm driving it.

Although by saying this, I might have to turn in my stick-club credentials, along with the gun and badge I have been called on to surrender, but it's the truth: I really liked not having to constantly clutch and shift on the drive home.
