Sad I sold, buying a new one

Vehicle

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

Review

I have owned 2 jetta tdis, a 98 and 02. this review is for 02, beautiful car, cool look, exc gas mileage at 53mpg at best, tank range i maxed at 765 then i got nervous and filled up. Loved both cars, but dumped the 02 due to some aesthetic quality issues. I had a door/window rattle that had me take it back to dealer 6 times in a year. Despite ripping car apart, removing seats, etc, damaging the vehicle during repair etc, it was never fixed to satisfaction. I pursued lemon law, but found a buyer in the meantime and sold the car. I miss it though and will likely buy a new jetta 04 or passat 04 turbodiesel only. .

Favorite Features

looks great, sharp design, purple dash lights, switchblade key, fast windows, sunroof, huge trunk, monsoon sound, styling, handling, great pickup for diesel, wheels,antenna, heated seats, seat design and comfort, height adjustable seat.

Suggested Improvements

cupholders suck, more legroom in back seat is a must, cloth interior is like a lint roller and attracts everything
