Volkswagen's 2009 Jetta TDI utilizes "Bluetec" technology which allows the diesel engine to comply with extremely stringent new diesel pollution regulations in states like California. The Jetta TDI delivers fantastic fuel mileage and performance, and the ability to use biodiesel made from soybeans and other vegetable oils makes this vehicle a particularly green alternative to expensive oil imports. For 2009 Volkswagen is once again offering the TDI diesel and this time drivers in all 50 states can buy one.
