So Far So Good
By Big D on


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


I have wanted a diesel for years. Finally ordered a no options car from local dealer. Order time was about 3 months. Had to break in on a long trip of 1600 miles but seems to have turned out OK. So far no problems. Only annoyance is squeaky brakes in the morning when I first start it up. Mileage has been exactly as advertised, at least according to the onboard mileage indicator. I like the manual transmission but it does give a little chatter into second gear until it gets warmed up, after that it shifts very smoothly. Side mirrors are smaller than I am used to but vision is otherwise pretty good. Fueling is somewhat messier than gas. Engine is very torquey!

Best Features

Diesel engine, fuel mileage, six speed manual transmission, generous cargo space, roof rack, heated mirrors, heated seats,seats,solid feel, 10,000 miles service interval, free service for first 36,000 miles.

Worst Features

Brakes, larger side mirrors.
