The 2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI has no direct competition.
This diesel car burns up oily fuel a drop at a time, making the Jetta one of the best and most efficient vehicles available in America.
Yes, I like diesels. And if you want an affordable vehicle that can carry five people from Detroit to Atlanta on a single tank, you should too.
Now I’ve heard lots of arguments against diesels: there’s the “premium” consumers have to pay for a diesel engine; the smoky exhaust and pollution. And then there are the dirty pumps, the fuel costs more, it smells awful and blah blah blah.
Look folks, here’s a car that can get real world mileage in the 40s. It’s a durable engine (which needs its oil changed every 10,000 miles). It’s a spacious car. It looks nice and this car is still cheaper per mile than most vehicles on the road today. And when did gas start smelling good to anyone but huffers too cheap to buy spray paint?
