2001 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)

Review

Car is incredibly comfortable, &
feels solid.My first'nice' car,I
bought it used & put 20k miles
annually on it commuting to work.The
biggest drawback(only drawback) is
NO ONE with any experience works on
TurboDiesels in the WV area...&
turbodiesels(be they VW or otherwise)
are very special little beasts,&require
attention. My routine timing
belt change was a fiasco (along with
virtually every TDI owner who has is
done),& the Ntake is constantly
clogging with diesel soot(there's a way
to stop it, but it's not too
envirofriendly).It's an incredibly nice
car,&gets great mileage (45mpg pre-
timing belt change),&it is much
snappier than the 90HP rating shows.

Best Features

Great mileage, nice interior, ability to use alternative enviro-friendly fuels like soy-diesel.

Worst Features

Train techs better on TDI's at VW, and fix the car so loss of power due to 'clogging with diesel carbon buildup' isn't an accepted problem.
