Last month I picked up the Autoblog.com long-term 2011 Volkswagen Jetta TDI. The car is in Autoblog’s possession for the next six months or so, and it had just arrived from Detroit. I was not only tasked with photographing the car, but it would be my ride up to the Monterey car week. I love the diesel engine in the car – it provided the fuel economy of a Prius while delivering the driving experience of a normal car – and I only had to fill up once the entire week. I didn’t love the interior, however. The seats were made from a fake leather that felt terrible to the touch, and many of the materials in the car felt cheap. The diesel engine just about makes up for it, though.
