Noise, vibration, harshness. I tend to think NVH on the tdi's has gotten better over the years. Though I actually don't mind a little diesel clatter. One mans noise is another's music.

My exact thought today while sitting in the Starbucks drive through in my new ecodiesel. What a sweet sound.

I just had the mod done and waiting for my check. This was my decision to keep the TDI. So to answer you I wound NOT buy another, I don't need to. I already have one and plan on keeping this for another 10 years. I see no reason to get rid of it. What has this feel, fit finish, power, economy, range?

It is paid for. VW and bosh has given me $6,500 in my +6 years of ownership. It really is going to be a keeper. Why? They don't make them anymore and I like it.

I did buy a used 2015 Nissan LEAF as a back up spare car to dip my toe in the EV world cheaply. I now after 6 months have a good feel for what that ownership, lifestyle is like. Very doable and not bad. You have to develop some habits, like plug it in when you get home, unplug before you leave. Nissan has really done amazing human factors engineering. There is a learning curve for a newbie to be sure. However after a month it is very familiar and comfortable. There is always RANGE anxiety, because you end your trip, return home often with less than 20 miles showing. That is kind of an emergency in a TDI with 600-700 mile range. However it is normal. A fast LEVEL II charger can stuff +20 miles/hour range into the battery. However that is first hour or two... it starts to level off. To get that last 20% takes as long as the first 80% (just the nature of Lithium-ion batteries).

Been a month since I returned the SW and I do miss it. I replaced the '11 SW with a '13 GTI. I love the GTI much more than I thought. It is significantly easier to park, amazing what a difference a foot makes. But that said, I do miss the extra space in the boot in the SW. Would buy one again without question, just would add an AdBlue tank to keep it on the road longer.

The GTI has performance going for it. It was on my very short list to replace a 2013 VW JSW TDI 6M...................

The BB $$$ + 'End of Model Year' pricing - added to the general effects of this here emissions situation (the US court involvement, public opinion, seeming corporate awareness - - - not necessarily guilt))..........

All of the above led me to end up with the highest EPA rated (MPG) Jetta: the 1.4 turbo/5M.

About as close as I could get to the fuel numbers associated with my wagon.

And - sure nuff - on a careful 140 mile drive along a two lane country road at a sedate 55-60 MPH......................I did calc just over 52 MPG.

So the potential is there. I like that.


best, ez

Awesome! gotta love the TDI community! Thank you. We ended up buying a 2012 sport golf wagon comfortline, very happy with it so far, only 300 km since we got it.

I just got my $5100K and extended warranty for another 2 years or 20K (based on age of my car and mileage). We are good to go, at least another 2 years.

Is that an extra extended warranty or the emissions fix warranty? I thought the emissions warranty was 4 years or 48,000 miles.

The warranty depends on the generation of the car, manual vs. DSG transmission, and probably size of the engine, but 2 years/20k miles seems lower than any I've heard.
