Combined with the high quality materials and excellent build, the bright and nicely finished interior is comparable to some luxury vehicles on the market. Overall, I am very pleased with this car. We'd skip the base 2. It's rated at a sky-high 45 mpg combined, just 10 percent lower than the much less entertaining Toyota Prius. Our opinion is that it's nicer inside, but we're fans of the Germanic no-nonsense. That torque peak arrives much earlier in the party, though, and stays much longer, compared to the lumpy, coarse delivery of the five-cylinder. The ride is firm but not harsh.
The Jetta Hybrid is the most fuel-conscious model, and though it's rare, it's something the hypermilers are seeking out. A lot of its character is now found in the 1. You only have to look as far as the SportWagen, which still has one of those lush interiors, to see the difference in the quality of materials. I plan on driving this car for a long time and the 5 star safety was a sure seller. A sealing cap at the fuel rail may fail, allowing fuel to leak into the engine compartment. Atoning for the great torsion beam blasphemy of 2011, all Jettas now get a multilink rear suspension and an anti-roll bar, and those who can appreciate it will be rewarded.
You had to wring out the four-pots in the Civic and the Focus just to get them going, their much lower horsepower and torque numbers not achieved until much higher in the rev range. Can literally go from 0mph to 40mph in half a second. Fuel economy's also much better, no matter whether it's coupled to the five-speed manual or six-speed automatic; top highway mileage is now up to 36 mpg, within sight of the best-in-class cars with smaller interiors. Driven in standard mode the Jetta still took it, but its Sport mode setting, which neither the Civic nor the Focus have, also gave it a slight advantage with respect to ideal gearing on the go. Car is a gem and has the documents to prove it. I could sleep in drivers seat, easily. Please call Peter at 239 37O 444O with more questions.
Volkswagen will notify owners again once parts are available. The action is under the hood and between the rear wheels. It has been a great car too. The steering is empty on center, as if it had a linkage that was dipped in soft rubber, and its feedback score is pretty close to zero. For the Jetta SportWagen, on a platform now nearing a decade old, there are fewer trim levels and a lesser options list. Expect a 0-60 from a standing launch-controlled position between 5.
I didn't get the connectivity upgrade as I am not a big whistles and bells guy. Seat belt buckles in the backseat are on stable bases but are flush with the seat-bottom cushion. The recall is expected to begin on April 16, 2014. As part of unprecedented settlements with federal and state governments, Volkswagen agreed to buyback from owners diesel-equipped models of this vehicle. I've put on 7500 miles on it in 3 months with a combination of about 75% highway and 25% city and consistently get 35-40 mpg.
In 2015, Volkswagen admitted diesel engines in this model illegally cheated federal tests and polluted beyond allowable limits. The Jetta's a tweener, too big to truly be considered a compact, but just shy of the real mid-size family sedan in outright volume. This engine also teams with a new electric power-steering system. There's not a single thing I can think of not to like about it. The Jetta's safety scores have been very good, but a rearview camera comes only on more expensive models. There are five powertrains available in the range, starting with a 2.
The diesel engine is quiet and not at all like old school diesels of the past. Very impressed with how safe they feel and how good they do in snow. . Audi owners may contact Audi customer service at 1-800-253-2834. When it's equipped with the standard five-speed manual, it's rated at 28 miles per gallon combined--a figure that's only competitive with mid-size family sedans. This year, all Jettas get an independent suspension at all four corners, and the charm that puts distance between them and most of the Asian compact cars is almost fully restored.

There is no wind noise. I feel comfortable driving the car and I know everyone else is too! Seats are very supportive and comfortable. Change oil, get spark plugs changed occasionally, small maintenance will lengthen your cars life! The Jetta least likely to win any gas-mileage derbys is the base 2.
Check them out side by side. At a less meta level, the Jetta's details are finely rendered, if in total it can read a bit plain. The Latch anchors are fairly shallowly located within the seat bight, in between the stiff, imitation leather surface of the seat bottom and seatback. The fold-down mechanism isn't found inside in the car--the pull-style levers are inside the trunk, a logical place that's also less costly to manufacture, but leads to a less pleasing look if you inspect the unfinished linkages that tuck up under the Jetta's rear glass. Owners may contact Volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987. When probing the reaches of corner-speed in a compact sedan or in corners of advanced difficulty, it could take a moment for the weight to settle, but we encountered no big understeery moments.
A whole segment of the population is not only content disappearing into the background in life, but actually seeks ways of camouflaging themselves through their daily drive as well. The interior definitely doesn't look or feel cheap either. One advantage to the Jetta's upright sedan profile is good outward visibility. I am enjoying having a standard transmission, the 6 speed is something new for me. The new four's a sweet revver, too--and while it can push the Jetta to 60 mph in about 7.
