Great Commuter Car
By Loki1098 on


2009 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)


I bought this car mainly for commuting duty (90% highway driving) as I drive 65 miles daily round-trip. The DSG transmission is extremely smooth and a good investment. The ride is smooth and comfortable at highway speeds. The combined package of high mpg, comfortable ride, good handling, safety features, cargo room, resale value, and $1300 tax credit made it a no-brainer for me. The only problem was finding one. I found the exact car I wanted, but it had the DVD/Nav. I decided to buy anyway to avoid the 3- 4 month wait of a factory order. I've only been driving the car a few days, but I really like it don't regret the purchase. Feels more Audi-like than my 2006 BMW 330i.

Best Features

Panoramic moonroof, DSG transmission, stereo, German ride qualities, safety features, Diesel MPG, DVD/Nav, cargo room, 3-year free maintenance

Worst Features

auto-dimming mirrors, steering wheel mounted controls like the sedan
