    2012 VW Jetta GLI

    http://www.examiner.com/cars-in-clev...tta-gli-review


    " Power comes from a VW/Audi legend, the 2.0 liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. Power output is rated at 200 horsepower, and torque being rated at 207 lb.-ft. Per www.vw.com, premium fuel is recommended for best performance. You would think that having to use premium fuel that this would be an expensive car to run, right? That is where you would be wrong. For a performance-oriented vehicle, it gets good gas mileage at 24 city/32 highway with the DSG automatic transmission. The DSG auto transmission is also a VW/Audi legend, coming on many cars that they offer. The DSG is a dual-clutch transmission, which is techno speak for an automated manual transmission. Other vehicles that offer a DSG transmission? The Ford Fiesta, VW Beetle (look for a review on the new Beetle in the coming weeks,) and the Audi TT (again, look for a review on the Audi TTS in the coming weeks. The list of vehicles that use a dual clutch transmission is long, and growing. Power and acceleration comes on strong, but there is one small glitch in the transmission. Whether leaving the tranny in automatic, or switching it over to sport mode which allows you to change gears yourself, gear changes came a noticeable amount of time after you pressed the paddles that are mounted on the steering wheel."

    You could say that as the sedan version of the GTI, that the GLI is more family oriented. This is a car that is worth at least a look if you need a new family car, but want some hey, look at me flare in your everyday commute. As always, if you have any comments, negative or positive, please leave them as your opinion is the one that matters.

    I'll add it to my "legendary engines" list if it doesn't still run an "ancient technology" timing belt.

    Jetta GLi at $28000 is the cost of the cheapo version. The "Plain Lunch Bucket "version of the Jetta is the one that starts at $16500. The real world version is $31000.........definitely NO THANKS....
    As I said to the test drive when I returned my 2010 Jetta Wolfsburg from my lease......
