I have a 2013 Volkwagen Jetta Sortwagen TDI that I'm willing to rent when I am out of town. It has a manual transmission which means an EPA rated 42 MPG highway on diesel fuel. If you keep it at 60 mph, you should see 50 MPGs doing highway driving. That is comparable to a hybrid. As of December 1, 2013 it has 30,000 miles on it. The car has a panorama sunroof and leatherette seats. I have an available Yakima roof rack and cargo box for the car should you need the extra cargo space. The car is current on all maintenance and has been very reliable since I got it 14 months ago. The car is ipod/iphone ready and can be controlled from the touch screen in the dash.
