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


Last week, I was hit by another car on the freeway and my car wentnto a tree at 65mph. Airbags deployed, seat belt pulled us back into the seats, engine dropped to prevent driver/passenger crushing, front end absorbed the shock, hazard lights went on automatically and the door locks released.We opened the doors, stepped out and WALKED AWAY with a few minor bruises, abrasions and a sore shoulder & neck. Unfortunately new OR used Jetta TDI GLS Wagons are as scarce as hen's teeth, but we purchased a 2003 Jetta TDI GLS Sedan yesterday to replace our totalled Wagon. That car saved my life. Thank- You Volkswagen...
