The initial batch of Volkswagen Jetta
TDIs have started to appear at Volkswagen dealers
around the country and at least one dealer in Virginia is reporting a lot of interest. Jay Pichardo of Greenbrier Volkswagen
posted a photo of the first demo vehicle
and some initial stats. In the first 24 hours, thirteen people took the car out for test drives and ten people put down deposits on the new fifty-state legal diesel
. According to Pichardo, the car has averaged 49mpg over the first 120 miles. Interestingly the car is emblazoned with graphics that emphasize the fact that the car is not a concept. We're waiting patiently for Volkswagen to send a Jetta
over to the ABG Garage for our own evaluation of real world mileage. Keith, you know where to reach me.
