2011 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)


I was reluctant to trade in my highlander limited, but wanted something more economical that would still accommodate a family of 4.
The sportwagen diesel fits the bill.
I've now driven 3000 miles and am very pleased.
Averaging 38 mpg per tank, about 42 mostly highway and a little less with all 4 of us in the car.
I haven't changed driving style at all and still get great mileage. The car is zippy, surprisingly quick for highway entrances, and takes corners well.
The storage room is exceptional, and my kids (7&9) fit just fine even with my 6'2 husband in the car. My only complaints are that the dash knobs are too small and the car sits a bit too low for a tow hitch for a bike rack.

Best Features

Mileage, sunroof, interior space, peppy engine

Worst Features

Larger dashboard knobs, dash dial lights need to go dimmer, garage door opener feature, enable a tow hitch so 4 bikes can be carried.
