TDI Rocks

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


I work at Bob Lewis VW. In March I bought a Jetta GLS TDI 5-speed. I love it. It gets about 47.88 miles per gallon and I drive about 80 miles per hour. The torque is 155 meaning I usually don't even have to down shift when going up hills. The car is a diesel so I won't have to get it smogged every 2 years and I smile everytime I pass a gas station. I am getting about 600 miles per tank. If you would like to contact me you can e- mail me at ClayAtBobLewisVW@aol.com.

Favorite Features

Favorite features: PW w/Pinch control, keyless entry, alarm, FWD, huge trunk, good handling, leather seats, sunroof, and the 17" wheels that for $650 from another customer who wanted 18".It

Suggested Improvements

It has everything I need right now.

Well, I still have my 2003 VW Jetta TDI. It now has 154,500 miles on it. I have installed a bigger turbo, stronger clutch with differential, larger side mounted intercooler, Malone turbo software, short shifter, H&R Sport Cup suspension, 18" Neuspeed Forged wheels w/Continential tires(The best tires I ever had), PD fuel pump, downpipe with full exhaust, tinted windows, racing motor mounts from 034 Motorsport, etc.. Pretty much a fast TDI.... I love the performance of the TDI. I still sell VW's now for Winn VW of Newark/Fremont. my email is CEBrechter@aol.com if you have any questions on TDI's. Have a great Saturday...It is free BBQ today
