VW Jeta Diesel in Minnesota - First Year
By stormovick on
Vehicle
1993 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan
Review
Cold winter driving was my main concern with the diesel engine but with the electrically heated seats and it's good heater, this is the warmest car I've owned. The manual gear box makes better milage and shifts easy. Comfort on long trips over 1000 miles was an other concern I had: not to worry, the ride is not too rough and the good handling makes driving fun. Short trips have cut my mileage down but I've still averaged 47+ for the first 22,000 miles.
Favorite Features
The extra long range before refueling is good: 600 to 800 miles. The heated seats are needed in Minnesota winters. The Turbo gives this car a top speed of 120 MPH, thus a 80 MPH cruse speed is not a problem.
Suggested Improvements
The new Euro diesels are more powerful and when mated to a six speed gear box provide better highway mileage yet. Also the Cd drag fractor for the Jeta is 0.30, not bad but I'd like to see 0.26 like some of the new cars.
