When I last tested a Jetta -- a mid-level Jetta SE sedan -- I mentioned in the blog that I was keeping my expectations low. With the exception of the hot-rod Jetta GLI, I've always found the Jetta a bit dull -- but that little red sedan completely changed my opinion of the car. I subtitled the review "Aaron converts to Jettaism".
So I was really stoked to check out the new VW Jetta wagon. I love wagons. My wife Robin and I own one (a 1996 Honda Accord) and as I've mentioned time and again, I've yet to find any other vehicle that can deliver the same combination of utility and economy as a wagon. So how did it go with the Jetta wagon? Er... not quite as well as I expected. Get the details in my 2009 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen test drive and review. -- Aaron Gold
