2012 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan w/Premium (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6M)


I have owned two VW's previously, a 1995 Golf and a 2000 Jetta, and was 'mostly' satisfied.
The 2012 Jetta TDI, however, has completely blown me away.

I simply cannot say enough great things about this car.
The low end torque that is referred to in most of the professional reviews, paired with the manual transmission, has to be experienced to be believed.

Simply put, driving this car is pure enjoyment.

The interior plastics are not as high-quality and 'warm' as I have come to expect from VW - but they are tastefully and intellegently laid out.
The stereo system is fantastic; it sounds great and it is easy to use.

If you really like to DRIVE, I would highly recommend this car.

Best Features

Fuel Economy, Interior and Exterior Aesthetics, and Exceptional Driving Performance

Worst Features

Bring back some of the warmth in the interior plastics.
