The good and the bad
By maninva on


2013 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan w/Premium (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6M)


Like other reviewers I had a bit of buyers remorse upon driving this car home from the dealer.
No auto headlamps, compass, auto dimming review mirror or back up cam left me a little disappointed.
The car grew on me once I got used to it.
It is fun to drive and I enjoy getting 50 mpg on the highway.
At 8k the paint on the front bumper started to chip off very easily.
After three different attempts to have VW repaint the bumper they refused to do so.
This was my first VW and will be my last.
I will not buy cars from a manufacturer that doesn't stand behind it's product.

A follow up to my previous review. Luckily I traded the Jetta in Dec of 2014. It was the worst car I have ever purchased. Had I kept it I would have lost thousand of dollars in value after the Emission Cheating Scandal came to light. I will never own another VW.
