Vehicle1998 Volkswagen Jetta TDi 4dr Sedan
ReviewBought in 2000 when 2 years old. Problems with the turbo, dealer replaced for free even though I am the third owner. Consistently get 50 mpg +/- 1 mpg winter, summer, city or highway. Lots of torque; I do not use first gear. Handling very good, and the car is balanced so that it sometimes tricks me into thinking it is a rear-wheel drive car in the winter, and I slide past a turn when I downshift to slow down. Only negatives are that one door is stuck shut (due to handle?). Can't VW fix this after two decades? Also, stock shocks/struts are junk; KYB improved handling significantly.
Best FeaturesTorque, mileage, handling
Worst FeaturesMake oil changes easier. Make door handle/hardware more reliable.
