2011 Volkswagen JettaMarc Held - Westminster, MD01/13/2016
I learned part of the exhaust system has a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) that is very expensive to replace. Many are go approximately 120,000 miles. I estimate Ill have another 30,000 miles before mine needs replacing. Hoping that with the imminent emissions recalls, it will get handled by VW.
Do not buy a diesel if you only do short trips. You will kill the DPF fast.
My VW Jetta is absolute perfection! The drive is smooth, the sound system is clear and the style is clean and sophisticated. I couldn't have chosen a better car to fit my needs, although it is a smaller vehicle it carries what I need and is a dependable vehicle. The gas consumption is good too, I basically fill up about 2 times a month and depending on gas prices it averages about $25 - $30 to fill.
This car is solid and well built. It definitely is a German car with very tight steering which you may or may not like. A really strange feature is that the fuel guage is one step from worthless. After filling the needle doesn't move for at least 150 miles. When it reaches 1/8 of a tank I can literally watch it move and shows empty in about 15 miles.
