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

Review

I drive a lot and wanted dependability. My previous '90 Jetta had 600,000 miles on it before it died. First I replaced the wiper blades, the originals sqeeked like crazy. Then I replaced the tires. They wore down so fast and didn't handle very well. With Michelin's it drives and corners like a racing car. The first failure on my new car was the electronic fuel mixer ($500) at 80,000, then a taillight at 120,000, then the brakes at 180,000. The shocks went at 240,000. Now the rear brakes will be replaced at 300,000. IE; this car is tremendously dependable. It still starts on the 1st or 2nd crank. Thee radio has always stunk (it broke in the first year) but I've go a rear CD player that replaced it

Favorite Features

Gas economy, ride, handling, visabilty (see out all windows, side mirrors), durability, dependability.

Suggested Improvements

Better tires, wiper blades and stereo systems.
