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

Review

Purchased this car new in summer 2003 with the intention to keep it a very long time. Now has 105k miles. Stayed on top of recommended maintenance and have only had to replace a glow plug at a dealer for $130 and a sensor, possibly for water temp, for $140 at a trusted auto shop. That's it! I recommend finding a shop with a former VW tech or someone with TDI knowledge for maintenance and repairs. Mileage is still outstanding at around 50 mpg highway and 44 city.

Best Features

Mileage, handling and stability control. Monsoon audio system has great sound quality at high or low volume.

Worst Features

More durable storage arm rest between front seats. Had the same problem as another reviewer with the plastic being pulled off a parking curb. More leg room for back seats.
