Vehicle2012 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)
ReviewCar is a pleasure to drive. Love the mileage (43-60mpg between 75 and down to 55 respectively). Carries a ton for a small car. Even gets great mileage with luggage stored on top. No power train issues ever. JettaSportWagon is 20 months old now with 30k miles. Lock system just went wacky. Dealer can't even figure out why some locks lock sometimes and others at other times. Completely random behavior. Changed lock control module. No luck. Now dealer is calling in expert from somewhere else. In first two months had similar electronic hiccup with ATC system. Wish the electronics were more stable.
Best FeaturesMileage is unbelievable. Storage and hauling is surprisingly good. Engine is surprisingly quiet.
Worst FeaturesElectronics are shaky at best. Issues with power locks, traction control system, A/C compressor control unit. Back seat is tight from every angle. Good thing I only haul small children right now.

Hmmm. I don't understand something. Your 2012 Sportwagen review is dated August 2011. In the review, you state your SportWagen is 20 months old. That would put the month and year of purchase at December 2009. Was the 2012 model really available then?Report it
