Mark Barnes, COO, Volkswagen of America-
Having the Jetta TDI clean diesel awarded MotorWeek’s ‘Best of the Year’ 2009 Drivers Choice Award is a tremendous honor for the Volkswagen brand. This award is testimony that drivers agree the 2009 Jetta TDI clean diesel provides an environmentally responsible choice, and a spirited and passionate driving experience
Motor Week's Judgement-
It’s clean, powerful, fun to drive, roomy and comfortable, and it also happens to be very affordable. If history is any judge on past Volkswagen diesels, you can also add extremely reliable and durable to the list.
