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


Only had vehicle for 3 mon. but very happy. Performance is better than expected - quick and responsive. Tight & nimble handling. 40mpg(combined) - 48mpg(mostly highway). Very comfortable interior but back seat too small even for 3 small kids. Premium 8 radio with sat but no nav. Bluetooth package NOT AS ADVERTISED. Learned I have lower grade Bluetooth - it only receives calls - no phone book and can't place outgoing calls. The literature is very deceiving. Bluetooth a waste of money if you can't call out. You can place a call on your cell phone, but expect a ticket sooner or later. Even more difficult with manual tran. Too early for build quality and reliability but so far so good.

Best Features

Performance - quick and good braking. Gas mileage is great. A lot of features for the money. Very nimble handling. Great looks. Sound system great - iPod connect very cool.

Worst Features

Can't read some of the heat/AC controls, particularly at night. Full function Bluetooth - safer & more realistic - not the worthless lower grade version. Maybe VW could prepare a software update to fix this. Back-up obstruction indicator would help. Dash gear indicator for manual tran might help.
