2010 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6M)


I have had this car for 6 months - mostly driven in Wisconsin winter conditions. After 8,500 miles all I can say is WOW! Fun would be an understatement.
I spent about $800 for a winter set of alloy rims and Michelin X-Ice tires at Tire Rack - highly recommend winter tires given the torque in this engine. Averaged 38 to 40 MPG over coldest months driving 40% city/60% highway. Now above freezing and getting 42 to 44 MPG. If I really keep off the gas pedal I can get high 40s, but hard to do when you have that engine under the hood. Beats the heck out of my wife's Camry Hybrid and gets much better highway milage (city milage too in cold weather.) Manual is a little touchy until you get feel.

Best Features

Interior fit and finish is great, as is touch screen audio system. Bluetooth with phone sounds great. Trunk is huge. Covered vinyl seats with custom sheepskin covers (accomodates air bags) to provide cold/hot weather comfort but they neutralize heated seats. Mileage is great.

Worst Features

Tight rear seat leg and foot room for adults. Dealer dinged door while in for warranty service (both rear window seals needed to be replaced) but they fixed it.
