Great commuter car
By Phlonet on
Vehicle2001 Volkswagen Jetta GL TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)
ReviewIn the first year I was driving 120
miles per day and was getting between
50-55 mpg. My commute lessened
considerably, and now I'm only getting
mid 40s, though on longer trips its back
up around 50. While the TDI doesn't have
quite as much pep as a 1.8T or a V6, its
still sportier than many other "economy"
commuter vehicles. Takes a little bit
longer to start when its below zero, but
have never had it fail to start. Only
one mechanical issue related the
glowplugs that was misdiagnosed at
first, but then fixed properly on a
subsequent visit. I wholeheartedly
recommend this car to anyone who has to
drive any sort of distance.
Best FeaturesGas mileage, simple interior features, solid road handling, fun to drive.
Worst FeaturesThe cupholders in the front sit in front of the radio when you have a CD player installed. The rear cupholders aren't deep enough to be useful.
