2000 Jetta TDI Love affair

2002 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)
Review
Jetta TDI is a marvelous car and gives great economy. We get 39 city and 42 highway. We don't "baby" it, but rather, drive is pretty hard. We have put 53,000 miles on it in 13 months of driving. Very happy with the ride quality and the solid feel of the car. Only 2 complaints!!! 1. Why so short an interval on the timing belt change? Calls for change at 40,000 miles (w/auto trans). I was not made aware of this requirement until after I bought the car, and was surprised at frequency and cost. 2. Front bumper too low. Don't park within 5 feet of the concrete stops or curbs. You will pull off the bumper cover every time!
Favorite Features
Love the engine. Very peppy and quiet for a diesel.
Suggested Improvements
Fortify the front bumper mounting brackets. Also, please develope a stronger timing belt to last more than 40-50,000 miles. Replacement a little costly.
