      For what it's worth you're over thinking this. Yes weight is one of the enemies of fuel economy but you bought a diesel not a hybrid. The greatest advantage of a diesel is you can get it in, drive...

      We have have both. The automatic climate control and automatic headlights are nice feature of the Passat. The JSW is much stiffer which makes it more fun and inspires more confidence on back roads....

      I'm glad you guys are getting the same experience I am. I just drive the way I want to and use the A/C as much as I want to. I had a Hybrid before, I had to baby it and it couldn't produce good...

      I'll blame 50 states emission for this and many other far more fuel efficient cars not being in the US.

      I agree with Tony, it's a serious short coming of this car and you shouldn't have to change tires to make the car tolerable. I suffered for years with a noisy Accord. The oem Michelin tires wore...

      The Jetta gets lower fuel economy. That discussion including the difference in the engine and tuning has been played out. I've gotten 53 at driving in the low 70s with a DSG with 2 adults and 2...

      I voted "no" on this poll originally but I have been using Opti-lube in both of our cars. It's highly rated and cost very little per tank so I'm running on the better safe than sorry theory.

      So I just quoted a 2012 Passat SEL vs. my 2012 Passat SEL TDI. I'm 35-40, no tickets, perfect credit. The difference came to $4.72 a month. That to me seems to be the difference in the value of...

      I agree, did the same comparison and hated it but in this case he's comparing the JSW which is really a Golf wagon. Think old Jetta goodness not the TDI Corolla.

      The JSW feels quicker but I suspect a radar gun would call them even. The JSW does ride/handle like my old VWs. Very nice. I drive the Passat, it's not as lively as the JSW but it's very capable. ...

      We have a 2012 JSW loaded and a 2012 Passat SEL Premium. The Passat is roomier by far and returns better fuel economy. In slower bumper to bumper and city driving their pretty close. As soon as...
