My TDI is great because I drive 30,000
miles a year! It did have a
transmission defect at 3,000 miles
which promted VW to replaced the entire
transmission. VW made the best of a
bad situation but the dealership was
horrible, never goto Congressional!
The best thing about the TDI diesel is
I use a type of diesel fuel called Bio-
Diesel. It's diesel fuel made from
vegetable oil, the kind I use is soy
based. It's not very well know that
this exists because of limited
availability but I can switch back to
dyno-diesel (regular diesel) if Bio-
Diesel is not available. The TDI will
run on Bio-Disel with no modifications
to the car.
Many things sold me on the Jetta TDI:
the mpg, reliability of diesel engines,
interior fit and finish, exterior
styling. The best thing about the TDI
is being able to use Bio-diesel which
is domestically produced, renewable,
bio-degratable and cleaner.
The transmission defect needs to be
fixed before the car makes it to
consumers and my particular dealership
needs better customer service!
