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

Review

I bought a 2003 Jetta TDI wagon in April '03 and have driven it over 15,000 miles. At 6' 4" tall, I find ample leg and head room thanks to an easily adjustable seat and telescoping / tilt steering wheel. The seats are firm yet comfortable for long trips. The 1.9 liter oil-burner is the quietest, smoothest diesel engine I've ever heard. The 5-speed manual tranny and clutch work together in perfect harmony; the shift throws are short and crisp. An economical car as well as a "driver's" car!

Favorite Features

Excellent leg and head room up front for taller drivers. Superior road manners and amazing fuel economy on the highway, often getting 54 mpg doing 80+ mph.

Suggested Improvements

Better training for the service techs who are trusted to maintain these beauties.
