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.
The Jetta is the luxury vehicle of it's class! You will find that the fit and finish does not say "economy"... not even on the lowest trim. Little things like soft touch vinyl, heated seats, huge trunk & digital read out information center set it far above it's competitors. More importantly, it gets good gas mileage and has a ton of power and speed. It is truly a joy to drive. If you want European feel without spending a lot of money this is the car for you.
Con - The back seat is a little tight for adults.
The 2010 Jetta SEL 2.5 is a great value for the money. The fit and finish of this car is similar to higher quality German automakers. The 2.5 liter engine is peppy and build smoothly and consistently. The interior room is nice. I am 6'2" and found the drivers compartment to be accessible and roomy. The rear seat is roomy, but I would not want to sit in the back for long trips. Average size people will find it fine. Overall I believe the 2010 Jetta SEL is a great car for someone who wants German quality engineering and performance without sacrificing value.
