The perfect vehicle by Littlecarrot on 03/02/2013. Trim: 2013 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen 2.0L TDI, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: High quality interior and materials make this car seem much more expensive than it really is. The Diesel engine has a lot of torque and power at mid-range, making it a blast to drive. Superb freeway fuel mileage (around 50) and huge cargo capacity make this a perfect all around vehicle.
Cons: Volkswagen needs more color options and a longer warranty. We got the extended warranty for a pretty good price.
Overall review: Not many station wagons can match the versatility, fuel mileage, and fun factor of the Sportwagen TDI.

Fun car with nice options by Kirtland Family from Kirtland, Ohio on 05/21/2013. Trim: 2013 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen 2.0L TDI w/Sunroof, Owned 1 year.
Pros: We have the diesel and it really provides for great gas mileage. The panoramic sunroof is a really nice feature. Stylish looks keeps it from being "just a station wagon" I recommend getting the door guards as this really completes the look.
Cons: Why no power seat? Remote start should be an option Auto lights should be an option Back-up assistant should be an option For some reason our 2 front rims were bent within 10,000 miles......not sure it there is a defect with these as we do not recall hitting anything major.
Overall review: Good car. Do not regret the purchase.

This car doesn't WOBBLE by An MSN Autos Consumer on 08/24/2013. Trim: 2013 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen 2.0L TDI, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Solid vehicle and drives very smoothly. Excellent fit and finish. Currently averaging 43 miles per gallon with mixed driving.
Cons: Nothing to dislike about the vehicle itself. Cost of diesel fuel is too high and might discourage people from purchasing a diesel powered vehicle. Government should do what it can to reduce cost.
Overall review: Excellent vehicle. Very happy with purchase so far.

The German alternative to the $40 - 50 thousand dollar TriStar or AeroProp by Lighting Bug, Northern CA on 06/17/2013. Trim: 2013 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen 2.0L TDI, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Fuel efficiency, reliability (2013 Consumer Reports Annual Auto Issue shows a LOT of red dots!), utility (cargo area is (66 Cubic Feet) big. Plus circa 240 lb/ft of torque makes for decent acceleration, the ride is composed and vibration free.......the clutch, shifter and brakes work well. The electric steering is flawless and the instruments (radio, heating/cooling, lights, turn signals, cruise control et al) are OK too.
Cons: The on board computer function (VW calls it MFI) offers so much information - - - - it takes concentration to drive "outside the cockpit"...... Plus I really don't understand the 12v outlet in the aft section (trunk). I wish it were in the cockpit area.
Overall review: A reliable (CU, remember?), fuel efficient (43+ MPG over 2375 miles thus far in 65% highway use) and nice looking wagen.
