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

Review

In Returning from Europe I was searching for a new dependable fuel saving small car. First choice was the 80 MPG VW Lupo, not available in the US! Not many choices to choose from in the U.S. when it comes to fuel saving cars. I looked at cheaper makes, bragging in their adverts of getting 30 MPG. I donít consider this very good for a 4 cyl. I settled for the Jetta TDI. This is a nice car I still avg 48 MPG. Hwy 65 MPH its around 55 MPG. I have had 3 problems; 1st the pass. window came un attached. 2nd & 3rd the Turbo and Mass air flow had to be replaced. All fixed by warrenty. Current 70000 mi.

Favorite Features

Besides the MPG, Blue lights on the main instrument panel, they are very easy on the eyes. Plenty of "Go" power. On the Hwy no up & down shifting as in gas-powered cars, 5th gear is fine. Trunk room, wow! both back seats down its a flat surface up to the back of the front seats

Suggested Improvements

Lower Maintenance costs. $600.00 for the timing belt every 60K mi! Better A/C, cant keep up in the sun. Get rid of the rubberish coating on the interior panels it peels off and looks bad it is not at all durable
