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

Review

No cold weather start problems, even in a cold climate. Heated seat option is awesome! Well-mannered car, somewhat vague suspension, a "civilized" ride that gives up a little on sporty handling but gains in economy and (so far) reliability. Fuel ratings not quite what was quoted, I average 40mpg, however, I drive the car pretty fast on the interstate, and it's happy at 85- mph! Relatively quiet, solid build, a safe car to be in, excellent corrosion warranty, a good 2 family car with a little junior. Lousy rear seat leg room for adults though.

Favorite Features

"Switchblade" ignition key, heated seats and rear view mirrors, nice stereo, very good gas mileage and power for a lowly 90-hp rated motor. It will pleasantly surprise you!

Suggested Improvements

Bogus cupholder design, lack of cupholders, the drivers side seat sucks, in my opinion. Improve on handling and suspension settings.
