MIDDLEBURY — In June of this year I became a very proud owner of a 2013 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI.
Our search for a vehicle was long and arduous. The cars in our driveway had always been at least 10 years old and only moderately reliable. But we were getting tired of the trips to the mechanic’s and the “adventure” of possible breakdowns everywhere we went.
With a Toyota Tacoma pick-up for weekend warrior projects and four-wheel drive, we focused on something that was more compact and could achieve better fuel efficiency.
