Hold on guys! I own a VW Jetta TDI...that's turbo diesel...this car is not your mid 80's VW diesel! It doesn't smoke or smell, it has plenty of power..it has a 6 speed dsg, auto, sport mode, isnt load and can be shifted manually..no clutch..the torque is awesome! It will literally spin the tires....in mild weather, no waiting on glow plugs..in cold weather, the wait is about 1 second....typically, in mild weather, day to day driving on suburban roads I get 50 mpg. Any stretch of highway 20 miles or so doing 70 I get 60!
Holds 13 gal and I go 600 miles before I fill up..I round tripped to west Michigan once, 1650 miles going 85+ on only 3 tank fulls!
The car is still made and is now available in the passat and another model too ..
