Default Proud New 2013 Jetta TDI Owner

Hey all. I finally was able to purchase a new 2013 Jetta TDI white with cornsilk. I have always wanted a diesel sedan and the Jetta accomplishes just that. I'll have some pictures later.

Argh!! I have been dreading this day! I now have an old piece of crap!

(Enjoy your car. Read up on the first oil change . . before you ask, LEAVE IT IN FOR 10k).

Here are some of the pictures.
Grievous Angel-Is it crucial to leave the oil in for the first 10k?

Loving the car so far. I live in Phoenix so the white with cornsilk was a must! It drives like a dream and gets incredible fuel economy.

What are the changes between the 2012 and 2013 jetta. I couldn't see any in the pictures compared to my week and half old jetta.

coers- The only changes made to it (at least to my knowledge) were the chrome trim added to the grill and extra "brightwork" in the interior. My brother in law has a '12 TDI and between the two there is VERY little difference, he has premium and so do we. Also, ?all?
of the '13s have 4 wheel disk. The '13s also have the adjustable front arm rest, which if you ask me, 6'2" 270 lbs, it will take some getting used to. I have to find a spot to put my right hand on so it won't move.

Brad- otd was 28,215. We ordered it back in July because we wanted a white/cornsilk with premium. There was an issue with one of the wheels on delivery, so they made us wait until this morning (supposed to have had it Tuesday) and knocked off some of the price for the inconvenience.

Thanks for sharing the pics! Keep us posted with any road trip adventures you go on.

It's been a great little commuter car for me, but I can't wait to take it out for a long trip. In the mean time, I just have to live vicariously through other Jetta TDI owners.

Oh! and you should sign up with fuelly.com

Did you get a temp gauge and or low washer fluid light. The arm rest being adjusted sounds great too. Congrats on your TDI.

The temp gauge is the one thing I wish I had with my jetta. Have there been any gauges added to anyones dash for coolant temp?

I've signed up with fuelly, but don't know how to put the window in on these forums like you and others have. There is no physical temp gauge. There is a low washer fluid light.

I wish I had the phone function on the radio.

And YES leave the oil in for the 10K. Its supposed to be a breakin oil meant to be in the engine for the full 10k. Plus you're just wasting money if you change it any earlier.

1) Go to your dashboard at fuelly.
2) Click on your vehicle -- this will take you to your vehicle page (in my case /driver/TheCityGame/golf)
3) In the lower right, there's text that says, "Share your MPG" with a link to "view all badges and stuff you can share". Click that.
4) There is code there that says, "copy and paste the following BBCode" (you can see big and small).
5)Then go to wwwtdiclub.com and go into your user cp. Then go into edit signature on the left side and paste that BBCODE there.
