Good so far-first 3000km
By wilsonberg on


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


Happy with the car, mileage has been very good. Adding snow tires for the Canadian winter affected mileage by consuming an extra litre per 100km. The car is assembled in Mexico not Germany so we will see how long term reliabilty works out.
You pay a premium for the TDI engine but the car is nicely equipped with heated leather seats, massive sunroof, trip computer, very good stereo.
For the price VW should include automatic climate control and full power seats (currently only the driver's side has power
for the back of the seat).
That is nickel and dime type stuff by VW dub. Due to the great torque available from the TDI engine, this car is more driveable than the my wife's 5cyl gas Golf.

Best Features

The largest power sunroof I have ever seen, 10 speaker stereo with media interface (touch screen), aux input and USB port for your mp3 player. TDI engine

Worst Features

Full power seats- Driver and front passenger, dual zone automatic climate control,
