Get Over The Looks And You Will Have A Great Car — Great car.Had a 2005 A3 2.0T before this and this is better for my needs as have now gone from spending NZ $ 160-180 every other weekend to NZ $ 80-90.Sure its not as fun as the A3 ( I knew that would be the case ).But once on the open road you wouldnt know that its a TDI under the bonnet.Mid range overtaking seems better that A3.

Gas mileage

No complaints, Runs like a clock and never stops !

Have Two And Will Keep Buying For The Comfort, Ride, Safety And Autobahn Style Driving Dynamics ! — Can't go wrong with a car that can out run a Toyota Prius Hybrid and do better in GAS mileage, right ??? I consistently scrape in 46.2 miles per gallon ! At 80 miles an hour - Its as smooth as they get !

Pros

Fun. Powerful. Handles. Space. Comfort

Cons

could use more power. Trunk wont close after first slam in the winter. The diesel wasn't sold in new york till now. I want the diesel.

I Have To Give It A Title. Sigh — Only regret was not being able to get the diesel power train. The 2.5 still has plenty of torque, and the car handles amazingly. Tiptronic along with just enough traction control makes even the most amateur driver feel like a veteran rally driver. Overall great car for getting five people around comfortably.

45 MPG

Don't Dismiss The Diesel! — Amazing fuel economy & creature comfort abound!! Leather, heated seat, sun roof, satelite radio...have all the options of higher priced vehicles. Quiet, rides nice, does just about everything I want in a car. I get about 42 to 46 mpg on average of both city and highway. Despite higher price on diesel, it still comes out on top. Engines are also designed to go over 300,000 miles.

Vw Jetta Tdi — I like the Performance – acceleration, braking, handling is superb. The Build Quality is generally very Good in comparison. The car's Appearance – both interior and exterior styling is good and the Cost of Ownership – like diesel consumption is one of the best. Maintenance is also OK at 15 000 km intervals. The Fun Factor – This car is fun to drive

2006 Vw Jetta Tdi — This car is a tank! Carries tons of kids and golf clubs! Huge head room inside spacious enough for my 6'4" son. Clean and sleek lines on the outside. Rides great. Excellent diesel mileage 1000 k to the tank. Super fun to drive to the beach with the moon/sun roof and all the windows down! Great pick up with 5 speed stick!
