I just got to drive a Jetta TDI... WOW!!!
I may have just driven my next car. Plenty of spunk, It handles! And the mpg was fantastic! The car was well broke in with 10k miles on the OD. What fun. Mixed driving, and I mean very mixed, ave 50 mpg out of the car. It was comfortable, quite, all most insulating.
The car belongs to one of my customers. They did buy it new at invoice. It is a base model with navi. They have averaged 46 mpg with it since purchase. They drive a lot of hwy. Will see how it holds up over the next year or so. They report no problems with the car at all.
I was very impressed with the car. Falls under OMG. If we just hadn't bought the HCHII I would be trading the MZ3 right now.
I was very impressed!!!!!! I don't think there is any need to look forward to CR-Z or any other hybrid from this point forward.
