I like my new 2002 Jetta TDI (5
speed/Man)better every day. Just went
over 11,000 miles with it. Except for
the fact that radio stopped working one
day, which the dealer fixed in 30 min,
I've had no problems at all. Started
fine all winter even at -15 F. Gas
mileage keeps getting better now I'm
averaging about 46 mpg. Does not smell,
smoke or have any of the diesel
problems that were common in the 80's.
There is a terrific website for TDI
owners that is very helpful.
Gas mileage,safety, seats and expected
durability of at least 200,000 miles.
Horrible cupholder design. Front visor
is useless when moved to the driver's
