Great alternative to SUV by Donna from MO on 06/21/2014. Trim: 2014 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI, Owned 1 year.
4
Pros: Comfortable, quick and fuel efficient. Control's are easy to use. This wagen has space for lawn chairs, coolers and extra adults. Sound system is excellent.
Cons: No all wheel or 4 wheel drive option.
Overall review: I feel this vehicle serves my purposes. I was looking for a comfortable, fuel efficient vehicle to travel miles to work but also room for outdoor activity. The Jetta Wagen has a roof rack for my kayak and room enough for coolers and outdoor supplies. As an alternative to an SUV this vehicle is a great choice. I have the TDI Diesel engine. The TDI is a fast accelerator and snappy handler. Would recommend this if you can live with no 4 wheel drive.

Drive this car! by 1.1mm miles driven on 08/12/2014. Trim: 2014 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI, Owned less than 1 year.

Pros: Hauls luggage for 4, or tools, etc. great driving, relatively economical for quality. Simple, tasteful interior. 2014 has excellent media&phone integration in base tdi model. Quiet at speed, just easy throb of engine&slight wind/road noise. Much like the sensation of riding in a 757. Driving position and site lines are good. Handling is not sports car good, but way beyond all but a few sedans. Has oversized brakes, DSG gearbox drives smartly. Fuel economy is outstanding, especially if cruise control is used at every opportunity. Best when driven sedately . It is smooth and competent in all aspects.
Cons: Hankook tires (2010) did not have good grip, turn-in or wet performance. Continental tire supplied 2014 are superior. I am 5-11 220. Seat is just big enough. As delivered, car on gravel or dirt roads has difficult to approach limits. Possibly a good feature for average driver, but every driver is relying on anti-skid features due to odd transition character. Again good because it makes you slow down. Maybe I just miss my rally tuned WRX-RA. The Sportwagen is a car for a more mellow enthuaist.
Overall review: Had 2010 TDI/DSG 65kmiles. Traded to new 2014. Says much. 2014 are going @2000 off. Push hard on trade value. Would have kept 2010, but discounts were about expected upkeep cost next 2yr: timing belt, brakes, battery, rf wheel bearing (good now, but wearing out), Faced with inevitable upkeep costs from 70k-110k and $2000 discount on2014, the trade made good sense. Get the 2014 while you can. The 2015 is not the same car. It is missing independent rear suspension and will have limited discounts!

" Jetta Fan" by GMD Grand Junction CO on 07/22/2014. Trim: 2014 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI, Owned less than 1 year.
Useful?
Pros: Handles like a sports car, great fuel economy, I have the TDI 6 speed manual and love it.
Cons: No garage door opener link, the sunglass storage spot too small for even a small pair of sunglasses, but these are minor complaints, the overall functionality of the vehicle more than makes up for these minor inconviences.
Overall review: A great vehicle, front wheel drive will do just as good if not better than 4 wd in winter mountain terrain.
