2002 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)

Review

We get 47 avg. MPG in combined city/highway driving and 52-53MPG at steady freeway driving speeds. The engine is the best part of the car! Not a slow car by far and comfortable ride for a small car. Only knock is the fit and finish quality of some of the parts. The paint on the interior door handles flaked off for instance and VW does not stand behind this kind of problem, rear seat split on seam and VW also almost balked on this! Outside paint clear coat is peeling in a couple spots. Car itself is solid however so I feel these issues are comparitively minor.

Best Features

Heated seats are great! Fuel economy in real world driving is 47MPG, Peppy if not fast pick up. Effortlessly cruises at 75-80 MPH

Worst Features

6th speed manual would be nice as would a little more rear legroom would be nice also. This is a great economy car!
