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

Review

I've only had this car for a couple of months but I love it. It is a very solid car and you have to be careful not to speed because it doesn't feel like you are going as fast as you are. Diesel engine is great, can't wait till the US finally realizes what Europe has figured out about diesel engines. Great roadtrip car- Cleveland to DC and still have almost half a tank. The diesel also has much better pickup at highway speed that gas engines so it shifts less with the cruise control on. Actually, I don't think it ever had to shift with the cruise control on.

Favorite Features

45 M.P.G.; heated seats; handling; sunroof controls are a dial that you turn instead of having to hold button to open; auto up/down windows

Suggested Improvements

cupholder needs redesign; Velour cloth interior is hard to clean; Monsoon radio takes too long to tune between stations; more rear leg-room; rear gate opens weird; floor mat holders should be better attached to floor; place to store CDs; 5 speed auto to help with M.P.G. in city
