2009 Volkswagen Jetta Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2010 4dr Sedan turbocharged 140hp 2.0L I4 Diesel
6-speed automated manual FWD
They say 30/42 MPG, I have NEVER seen below 34 mpg and that was trying to burn some fuel. Our first trip was to the Tri-state area in West NC. Hand calculated to 46.3mpg. We constantly get 42-43mpg on the highway, and 37-39 around town, which is 30mph driving. My wife and I both drive fast on the highway, On average the Cruise control is set between 75-85 (tends to be on the higher side). see full Volkswagen Jetta review

Exceptionally consistent. Even with auto, it gets between 42 and 45 mpg routinely. I drive efficiently, but it still can pull up sizeable hills at speed while carrying a considerable load. see full Volkswagen Jetta review
