First car I've ever loved!

Vehicle2009 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)
ReviewBeen driving a Sportwagen TDI (DSG)for 3 months now, and absolutely love the car. A very practical wagon with loads of cargo room, interior design that's far more like an Audi than Honda or Subaru, and the gas mileage of a Civic! The car feels wonderful on the road - solid and much more powerful than 140hp would lead you to believe. Yes you pay more for diesel fuel, but with a 40-cent spread between unleaded and diesel in NY, you still come out ahead, and put less CO2 in the air to boot. Gas mileage is very temperature dependent - was getting 34 mpg in winter, but already the commute is up to 38 mpg with spring temps (it's hilly here). Totally love the car!
Best FeaturesMPG's, cargo space, lots of fun to drive, great panoramic sunroof
Worst FeaturesDiesel filling tube is oddly narrow - fuel nozzles often don't fit properly. And had to wait 6 months for the car to arrive!
