Is the tax rate on my VW Jetta correct?


Is it normal that my tax is €750 a year on a 2009 VW Jetta 1.6 petrol? If this is correct, I was wondering why it is so high?

Thank you

Hi Evan,

That does seem like an anomaly. According to our data, a 1.6 petrol Jetta with a manual gearbox from 2009 should have emissions of 165g/km, so should be taxed in Band D, on €570 a year, not €750 a year. I’d raise a query with your local motor tax office.
