2003 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDI 4dr Wagon (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)

Review

Keep an eye on certain maintenance items: always use synthetic oil (Delvac 1), keep an extra mass air flow sensor on hand, and find someone with a VAG-COM to make adjustments to the EGR setting to reduce intake clogging. This should lead to many trouble free miles. I regularly travel over 800 miles per tank of fuel, averaging over 48 mpg. Even spirited driving nets 42 mpg!

Favorite Features

Car has great pulling power. No need to downshift to pass, even going uphill. Fuel economy can't be beat!

Suggested Improvements

VW needs to fix the MAF so they last longer. I highly recommend checking out tdiclub.com as they have a very knowledgable user base and are willing to help.
