Sportwagen model excels
By oppai on


2011 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)


Recently picked up a TDI Sportwagen discounted due to light exterior hail damage.
So far I'm extremely impressed with the build quality, handling, responsiveness, and power of the TDI.

While I can't compare the 2011 model to prior models, I still remain impressed with the upgrade it provides from my prior vehicle: 2002 Pontiac Grand Am.

The wagen feels larger but is actually several inches shorter than the Grand Am.
The DSG transmission is butter-smooth and relatively aggressive driving is still averaging 30+mpg (5 better than conservative driving on the Grand Am)

The interior is suprisingly roomy as well; I'm 6'1'' 260 and don't feel cramped in the least.

A long haul car.
