Good clean driving fun
By beaverdam on
Vehicle
2012 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan w/Premium, Navigation (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)
Review
This VW has exceeded all of my expectations. Highway Mpg is always above 50 unless the AC is on then it drops to 46. City MPG is about 35. Only time will tell but so far it is rock solid and very reliable. Ride control is tight but not too firm. The lack of independent suspension in the rear is not noticable for me. 4 wheel disc brakes have a firm feel. Electric power steering feels like "steer by wire" but is easy to adjust to.
Favorite Features
DSG automatic feels like a manual trans with robatics to open and close the clutches and select the gears--much better than a torque converter trans. Diesel motor is very strong and runs smoothly. Nav system is adquate but not overly complicated to use. 400 watt Fender stereo is a blast and the cars sounds like a concert hall. Best of all the clean diesel is easy on our environment and keeps the "fun" factor.
Suggested Improvements
Would like to have automatic day/night mirror; automatic headlights and a backup camera. I know it is only a Jetta but not everyone needs the size of a Passat which has these upgrades.
