2001 Jetta TDI (TurboDiesel)
By Jetta Owner8 on
Vehicle
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.
Favorite Features
Great mileage, nice interior, ability to use alternative enviro-friendly fuels like soy-diesel.
Suggested Improvements
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.
