      LED taillights look fantastic! I wonder if they'll end up on the GLI as well...

      Trunk space is compromised from stock Jetta but still plenty of space! Thank god the Jetta typically has a ridiculously large trunk to start with!

      Battery only weighs 79 pounds and Volkswagen has created a recycling plan for the lithium ion battery with its manufacturer.

      That "Turbo Hybrid" sticker looks so cheesy. In fact, I have one on my 15 year old hairdryer.. LOL

      Posted a picture from the interior of the SEL Premium Jetta Hybrid on the drive...

      The Jetta is just plain a better car to drive than the Prius or Civic Hybrid...

      Going out to compare Jetta TDI vs Hybrid.

      Is the RNS315 that much cheaper to produce/install over the RNS510?

      Personally, I MUCH prefer the 315! The 510 is bulky and slow.

      The guy named SoCalDubber that sells VWs likes the VW more than the Honda and Toyota.

      This is just stunning information.
