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

Review

If you are looking for a well built, economical and safe vehicle then the Jetta GLS TDI is a solid choice. This is my first diesel car, and I love it! Forget everything bad you ever heard about diesel, and give this car a try. It starts easily in the cold of a NH winter and the fuel is sold in about 50% of the local filling stations. While there is a slight odor to the emissions, at 50 mpg I can live with it. It is a quiet and comfortable ride. The safety features give me a great sense of security should something happen while driving. While the standard price is higher, the standard features are much greater.

Best Features

Economy (50 mpg), the Monsoon stereo (get it), power everything, German engineering, the storage space is huge. Nice details like the remote/key combo, blue/ red lighting, power adaptor in the trunk.

Worst Features

The cup holder is ingenious and unique, but in the wrong place. It blocks the stereo controls when in use. The rear seat is a bit cramped, (but I never sit there)!
