2004 Volkswagen Jetta Diesel GLS TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


Review

I have had this care for less than 3
months and already have about 10000
miles on the vehicle. The car itself
is fun to drive and I have had no
issues as of yet. I drive throughout
nw Arkansas and the River Valley with
my position at Tyson Foods. Great fuel
efficiency and quiet interstate ride.


Best Features

the diesel engine and the fuel efficiency was the selling point for me. I have a doctor friend that has two and can only say good things.


Worst Features

front seats need to be a little wider. On longer trips tends to be a little uncomfortable for a young man 6ft 2in. I don't like the black interior but the dealership was unable to find a white exterier with alternate interier color. Also, I had to have the windows tinted

Review

We recently moved out of the city and
were looking to reduce our monthly gas
bill. We test drove a Jetta TDI and
were immedieatly impressed with how
solid the car was. The interior was
well appointed and the ride
comfortable. The mileage was what sold
us ulimately!


Best Features

Turning the key to the left when opening the door automatically rolls down all the windows - which makes cooling the car down in the summer "a breeze".


Worst Features

Knocking the base price down a bit would be a sure fire way to sell more TDI's!

Review

The VW Jetta is a great car that is
built better than any other car on the
road. Most German cars like BMW and
Mercedes are good quality but,high
maintanance cost. The Japenese cars
are reliable, but have cheap features
and interiors. The American cars have
a long way to go with quality in both
the interior and exterior...also with
reliablity. So the Jetta is the one
car that you can get German quality,
virtually no maintanance, very safe,
and extremely reliable all one.


Best Features

The reliability, quality, and peace of mind knowing I am riding in a safe and reliable car.


Worst Features

N/A

Review

Before I purchased the Jetta I looked
at everything from Cheverolets to
Jaguars to Mercedes to Nissans and
spent two months looking everyday. I
was replacing a Lexus IS300 that was
wrecked. My main concern was safety
and VW ranks at the top on saftey. The
Jetta gets great gas mileage, is a
quality build that had many of the
same interior designs as the Mercedes
(without the high repair cost), and
has a great reputation. My cousin had
one of these he drove for many years
and finally sold with 310,000 miles on
it and it was still running. Overall
the car is one of the best on the road
that offers quality, style,
performance, and reliability all in
one.


Best Features

Great gas mileage, Monsoon stereo, Cool Glowing Insturment Panel, Great build quality, quick exceleration. I really like to see that German engineering that is leveraged between BMW, Audi, Mercedes, and Volvo that you see many of the same features in each car. The car is built safe.


Worst Features

None at this time. Just keep on building quality cars.
