Has anyone heard about the Jetta SportWagon? I had read that it was supposed to come out in August with the 2.5 engine. However, I was just at the vw dealership and they said that there was a fire at the factory where they build the 2.5 engine. This has caused a shortage that won't allow them to come out with the SportWagon until around January as vw will concentrate on the sedan. I have no idea about the 2.0T or the diesel, but this is essentially what I was told by the manager of this dealership.

I thought the Tiguan "SUV" was going to be the wagon version of the Jetta. Are they still planning a true wagon in addition?

Here is what VW sent me after i inquired:
Unfortunately, there are no plans to produce a TDI Rabbit. However, the Clean Diesel Jetta TDI is expected to be available during the first quarter of 2008 in both Sedan and SportWagen body styles. It will be certified for sale in all 50 states with a six-speed manual and six-speed DSG automatic transmission. The 2.0L four cylinder engine will deliver 140 hp, and 236 lbs. ft. of torque.
So there we go, why they arn't doing more or actively promoting it is unknown...
