2010 Volkswagen JettaChris Mazuros - St Petersburg, FL03/14/2016
The Jetta TDI wagon is the golf GTD that I have been wanting Volkswagen to import for years. Based on an extended 4 door GTI chassis with the same brakes and suspension it is a pleasure to drive. The 6 speed manual transmission is silky and the 236lbft.of torque make it loads of fun to toss around in city traffic or a curvy back road. Having the added space of the wagon allows me to load up my wife and our 4 large dogs for trips to the beach and park. 42 miles per gallon at 75mph on the highway has me smiling all the way to the bank! Yeah there is the emissions scandal, but VW will have to fix it. The benefit now is that they can be found at great prices.
Great car but...
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.
This car is so comfortable and fun to drive. It has so many perks like heated leather seats and heated side view mirrors. We are going through one of the worst winters we have had in our area in a long time and this car gets around great with its front wheel drive.
