    Hi Jud:

    ___I have the feeling an 06 Jetta TDI would not last long in the used car marketplace ;)

    This might have already been mentioned here, but the new Jettas averaged over 25 mpg in racing conditions in the Jetta TDI Cup: link

    Has anyone looked at the drivetrain info they have up? 4th and 5th gears are almost identical for the TDI. Could this be a mistake? (link)

    1st 3.77 (3.46)
    2nd 2.09 (2.05)
    3rd 1.32 (1.30)
    4th 0.98 (0.90)
    5th 0.98 (0.91)
    6th 0.81 (0.76)
    Reverse 4.55 (3.99)
    Final I 3.45 (4.12)
    Final II 2.76 (3.04)

    Edit: disregard that, they use different final drives.
