What are the oppopinions?

2006 vw Jetta tdi fully loaded. This is the 1.9 tdi not the ones in the dieselgate issues. I am looking to future proof my commuting needs. Anyone own one? Covet one? Work on one? Love y’all!

(Disclaimer: I have posted a lot on oppo for prospective buying advice. Two years ago I purchased a 2002 bmw 540i 6/speed that has proven to be unreliable for daily commuting needs two years ago. I need to make a change but seriously have a hard on for that kind of comfort and performance.)
