    Hi All:

    An update... The US based 2010 VW Jetta sedan received the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's (IIHS) TOP SAFETY PICK award for 2010, the highest rating possible from the non-profit research organization. The annual award recognizes those vehicles that perform best in protecting passengers in the Institute's front, side, and rear crash test evaluations, and the newly required roof-strength test evaluations. The Institute only tests vehicles with electronic stability control (branded Electronic Stabilization Program® / ESP® on Volkswagen vehicles), and head protection airbags.

    "TOP SAFETY PICKS are the vehicles on the top rung for safety," said IIHS president, Adrian Lund. "The VW Jetta is in an elite group that afford the best protection in the most common kinds of crashes, and have electronic stability control to keep drivers out of many crashes altogether."

    "The safety of our cars is of the utmost concern, from the initial design stages, all the way through to the maintenance procedures at dealerships," said Mark Barnes, COO, Volkswagen Group of America. "To have such an important group as the IIHS recognize the Jetta is a true testament to the care, safety, and precision we strive for with every Volkswagen we build."

    Beyond the Jetta’s fun-to-drive dynamics and fuel-efficient TDI engine, every 2010 model year Volkswagen vehicle includes Volkswagen's Prevent and Preserve Safety System standard. Composed of more than 40 different features, the Prevent and Preserve Safety System helps keep drivers and passengers safe during normal driving conditions, and reduces the severity and consequences of a possible crash. The Jetta also comes equipped with an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), ESP, up to eight airbags (depending on model) all standard.

    In addition to the Prevent and Preserve Safety System, the 2010 Jetta TDI includes the no-charge Carefree Maintenance Program. With it, all of the scheduled maintenance for the vehicle, as described in its maintenance booklet, is covered for the length of the New Vehicle Warranty -- three years or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first.

    Unfortunately, ESP is a $450 option on the Canadian Jetta TDI :(
