Sad about the Jetta TDI

I was leaning toward a new Jetta TDI Superwagon next year.

At the LA Auto Show I had a chance to test drive the new Prius V which gets comparable mileage on only regular grade gas.  The V is much better in my mind than the standard Prius because of the visibility through the heightened back window.

I later read through dozens of online posts about Prius V handling and interior finish compared to VW's - and I tilted back to toward the Superwagon.

That is - until I realize there's now an eighty cents difference between regular grade fuel and diesel.  THAT won't justify the cost difference.

And now the Prius V is front and center as next year's choice for me.
