Vehicle

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

Review

This is my second VW TDI. Other cars include a Mercedes and Corvette. The new 2004 PD TDI has noticably more torque and more power, however, fuel mileage is not quite as good as the 2000-2003 TDI's. I got 45 -50 mpg on last TDI; 2004 PD TDI gets about 40-45 mpg... still very good. I would avoid the light beige cloth interior... too hard to keep clean. (I known this from my 2000 TDI). Overall, very happy with car and would highly recommend.

Favorite Features

Car is rock solid. No rattles or squeaks. Build quality is near perfect. So far, no problems during first 6,000 miles. Stereo system is above average. Good solid towing capacity for a small car (1300+ lbs).

Suggested Improvements

Rear seats difficult to fold down because you must 1st remove all rear headrests. Also, front seats must be slid forward, making it difficult to comfortably drive (I'm 5'10")when carrying cargo. 6' drivers will NOT be able to drive when rear seatbacks are folded down.
