Volkswagen Jetta TDI 2005


Pros: biodiesel-ready, VW handling, VW luxury

Cons: expensive for most, hard to find in wagon

Best car I've even owned. Most mileage possible outside a hybrid, and drives like a German sportscar. Great luxury in the GLS package, but electric everything in most other packages at the time. Worth every penny we spent on it, still loving it 3 years and 50,000 miles later.

Volkswagen Jetta TDI 2005

One of the best cars out there. Great mileage (42mpg average). Excellent economical luxury with heated leather seats, sunroof, electric everything, great stereo, and great road feel.
