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


Great car for distance travelling.
I have put nearly 4,000 miles in almost 2 months... No problems - and have enjoyed the the car overall...

Best Features

The 2.0 diesel is torque happy - therefore I'm happy. While I can't beat anyone at the stop light, the passing power is impressive on rural roads - I don't have the normal 4 cylinder trepidation that I experienced from my old Civic/Accord days any more... I've owned a 911, and an old Buick GS w/ 455 - both of those cars were rich in torque - so I expect some grunt! This engine is great.

Worst Features

The jump from 1st to 2nd is long... I can't "cheat" a right turn easily at low speed in 2nd, and as a result usually have to shift to a too low first gear... 1st gear is too low once moving to shift to - but 2nd is too high for slow speeds/rolling... I'm adapting.... The base radio/Bluetooth setup STINKS!!!!!!!!!!!! The sound quality of the radio and ease of use is good however... Don't use a Toyota setup, and switch to this setup... You'll be singing the blues....
