Expert Reply:

The only hitches available for your 2010 VW Jetta TDI are Class 1 rated with a 1-1/4 inch by 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. This is done because the spots on the Jetta where the hitch would connect to the vehicle aren't strong enough for the capacity of a Class III 2 inch receiver.

Draw-Tite offers a Class I hitch that's a fit, part # 24866 that has the 1-1/4 by 1-1/4 inch receiver tube.

If you were wanting a 2 inch receiver because of a 2 inch hitch accessory you already own, you can use an adapter like # HTAD. However, using an adapter like this will lower the hitch tongue weight capacity by half. This means that instead of having a 200 lb tongue weight capacity, the capacity will be reduced by half to 100 lbs. This means that the hitch accessory plus whatever's loaded on it cannot weigh more than 100 lbs or you'll risk damaging the hitch and its attachment points to the vehicle.
