jetta MK5 TDI. my mom traded her WRX in for a new TDI. why you might ask? well cheeper payment and better fuel economy. my mom got a shadow blue package 2 car. package 2 is pretty much the loaded out model. the car is a 5 speed. the car drives extremly well. the car is very comfterable. with the package 2 you get the seats out of the A4. the car has alot of room in the back and front. the diesel motor feels good and just like a gas 2.0 vw motor. my mom is averaging 41mpg with just about 400 miles on it according to the on board computer. is it for me though... no.. a simple no.

If that came with the 5 speed trans you better get friendly with the service manager. Many early clutch and flywheel failures and VW is refusing warranty.

I like the VW Passat I rented in Germany. I would love to know if the TDI there is the same here or coming here. Nice bit of pep and surprising drivability for a diesel. Did great on the autobahn too (hence my avatar). But the one I rented was a 6 speed. Option here??
