Overall my little Diesel Jetta GL was
wonderful to me. I drove it, and drove
it and drove it and it just kept on
truckin. Gas mielage is out of this
world and so is the heat it can pump
out. I did have to replace two door
handles. Aside for those and the glow
plugs once I really didn't have any
trouble with it. When I did I always
had a heart attack, expecting the
worst and it was always just a fuse!
I'm serious people- fuses were the
number one problem I had with that
car. It was always groovy though
because I don't mind twelve dollar
repair bills. VW's rock and the
diesels are rocks!
HEAT, HEAT, HEAT!!! I'm such an ice
cube in the winter and that thing kept
me SOOOOOOOO warm. It was awesome. The
trunk is HUGE, never a lack of space
for my road trips. Gas mielage of
course. Also very roomy inside, people
in the back seat were always comfy.
Door handles definately need improved,
and being a diesel it wasn't the
fastest thing but it always got me
where I was going. The plastic trim on
the car wasn't attached very well. VW
should have used fake nail glue, that
stuff holds anything!
