ReviewMy wife and I enjoy driving our new Jetta TDI. We have been achieving 33 mpg in city driving and 43 mpg on the highway as long as the auto is driven sensibly. The new diesel is much quieter than we expected, and there is almost no odor on start-up, even on 20 degree mornings! The seats are a bit larger than the older style Jetta, but are still firm and comfortable. Rear legroom has also improved. While I would not classify this auto as a true sports car, it does handle well. The fit and finish of the interior is excellent, and all controls are well placed. Overall, we are happy with our purchase. It's a lot of car for $23,000.
Best FeaturesThe satellite radio option works well and is easy to understand. The FM radio band has the RDS (radio data system)feature, so song title and artist information appears on the radio display. This is a nice feature.
Worst FeaturesElectric drivers seat adjustment. The seat cannot be safely adjusted while driving.
