TDI Sedan after first 5000+ miles
By dibrowz on


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


Below are the ACTUAL mpg and average speed figures as reported by the onboard VW computer: MPG = 34.7 at an average speed of 32 mph 34.3mpg @ 30mph 34.3mpg @ 31mph 33.7mpg @ 30mph 33.8mpg @ 30mph 33.9mpg @ 33mph Each set of the figures above were from full tanks of gas (about 400 miles per tank). As you can see, most of the driving was city driving and the TDI is pretty consistent at around 34 MPG. I have yet to use a full tank on the highway but I typically see MPG figures in the mid 40's when charging around the flatlands of the Sacramento area doing 65-75 MPH. Love this car!!

Best Features

Seats are snug and firm. Auto transmission is efficient and lets the car run near 2000 rpms Recently diesel prices have dropped below regular unleaded!!

Worst Features

Four-wheel drive version Headlights to automatically turn off when left on. Seat lean is adjusted by slow turn of a wheel, I wish it was a standard lever or powered like most cars.
