Underappreciated wheels by TDI daily driver on 12/23/2011. Trim: 2010 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Silver TDI Sportwagen Love the Mileage, great cargo capacity, handling, classy interior, 17-inch wheels, heated seats have oomph, available manual tranny (hard to find these days). Overall fun to drive, and easy to cruise in.
Cons: one rattle already, another appeared. Vents - feel cheap a& poorly designed; rear ones have broken once and I'm sure will be kicked & broken again. Diesel used to be a 20-30 cent premium. Now it's anywhere from $.70 to 1.00. still pay less for fuel, but it's close. Mileage suffers in cold weather, even on longer trips, expect 15% less than you get in the summer (but still very good). Had trouble starting twice in recent weeks and I'll have that looked at. In general, this is not a quiet car. They could have done better with the sound deadening materials. Fairly quiet on normal roads, but boy does it hum if you hit even moderately coarse pavement. could use a little extra rear leg room.
Overall review: Really like this car, despite some quirks and minor gripes. This combination of mileage, space, features and price cannot be had anywhere in any vehicle. Prius for the same price would certainly not have leather and heated seats or premium wheels. it also wouldn't have the handling and doesn't offer a manual (lame). Also, if you don't require AWD (and chances are, you don't) you can pretty much skip any small SUV in favor of this car and save lots of money and still get the same amount of room. true for both the diesel and gas engines.
