1999 Volkswagen Jetta TDi 4dr Sedan

Review

Primary reason for buying was to avoid semi-weekly gas station fillups as I have a 100 mi. daily commute. Milege is better than advertised. I get 49-52 mpg. Paying dividends now with gas > $2.00 and diesel @ $1.70! It has been extremely reliable, it has never broken down or failed to start, even in subzero New England weather. Never any problems with electrical. Glow plugs had to be replaced once (not needed to start car) and were rather expensive, but you can find them cheap on the internet rather than pay the dealerships insane prices. 135K miles to date and many more I'm sure. Great car.

Favorite Features

Milege, comfortable firm seats, large trunk, dependability

Suggested Improvements

Takes a long time to heatup on cold mornings, skinny steering wheel, should have variable intermittant wipers, cannot fit winter wiper blades so they ice up
