2013 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6M)


2013 VW JSW TDI 6M - - - -

White with Cornsilk interior. Lots of room. Sturdy VTEX (that's VW for leatherette) interior.

Has a clutch, six speed manual shift transmission and the top three gears are overdrives.................

Fuel economy for 46,000+ miles (per Fuelly.com) is 44.3MPG

Steering, braking and shifting very easy. With 236 lb/feet of torque from 1750 to 2200 RPM acceleration is OK too

With rear seats folded forward, the cargo capacity is huge. ......about 66 cubic feet.

Altho' the electronic compass was delivered read ing S when heading N,
the very capable dealership in California's capital provided a quick fix. There have been zero defects affecting mobility.

As of this update, there has been one repair (covered under factory 3 year/36,000 warranty): EGR/intercooler split seal.

At 49463 miles, i have decided to accept VW's buyback offer. No further updates may be expected forthwith

3400 mile update for this 2013 VW JSW 6M would show average MPG - as computed at Fuelly.com - at just under 44 MPG. Driving is aprx 65% highway. No problems - the North versus South compass reading excepted (and fixed by dealership) - with the vehicle to date.

10,150 miles now: 2013 VW JSW 6M continues with but one issue - it was delivered with the electronic compass 180 degrees out of phase (fixed by dealer - who recently completed the 10k first service in one hour). Fuelly.com currently shows 44.5 MPG for 10,000 miles of aprx 65% HWY driving. For $25,750 (prior tax, license and dork fee), this nice looking, fuel efficient and easy driving wagon continues to be a real positive.
