I see that the DSG model is rated at 30 and 40 mpg while the stick is 31 and 43. I though they were both 31 and 43. This is a big disappointment to me. This is not mentioned on the fueleconomy.gov site but the window sticker is as above. Any thoughts from anyone. I was all ready to jump on this car as soon as available, but I am now having second thoughts. There is no drop off in the Jetta with the DSG, so why should there be with the Passat?? Maybe I keep my '06 Jetta a while longer after all. I will NOT buy a new Jetta......it is only a shell of the previous car. The thought of that suspension, worse brakes, cheapened interior is too much for me. Love my '11 Touareg TDI though.
