Zippy, for a diesel

2003 Volkswagen Jetta GL TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)
Review
I've had many VW's and this one is terrific, like the others. The turbodiesel is quick to start and doesn't smoke a bit when driving or in traffic. The car feels like it has more than 90 hp, as the torque is so strong. No need to downshift on hills or to pass. Low RPM's on the highway make for quiet cruising. Lots of headroom (no sunroof) and storage space. Mine has the updated console with 3 cupholders (slide the rear one back and it holds a large water bottle in the gap provided by the slider.) Great feel through the steering wheel and suspension. Rides like a much larger car. No complaints.
Favorite Features
Long cruising range - 500+ miles and you still have over 1/4 tank! Lots of headroom, which is a rarity in cars these days. Stereo (non-monsoon) sounds great - good bass punch - and has tape and cd as standard.
Suggested Improvements
Nothing major - how about an armrest as an accessory for the GL model.
