Vehicle2004 Volkswagen Jetta GL TDI 4dr Wagon (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)
ReviewI originally reviewed this car on 1/15/05, and I just wanted to give an update. Now at 35,000 miles, the car is still a delight. Now that fuel prices have surged well past $3.00/gallon we enjoy the great mileage all the more (now averaging 43-44 MPG). The car has been 100% reliable and durable - much more so than our 2001 VR6 was. We obviously love the fuel economy, but the TDI engine is also wonderful for low- down torque. You never have to wind this engine to find the power. It's right on tap and very smooth. With 4 snow tires, it's great in the winter. Factor in the wagon versatility, great comfort, a fun and spunky driving personality, and the car is a winner all-around. I hope the new ones come as wagons.
Best FeaturesThe reliability, easy maintenance, unbelievable fuel economy, confort, wagon versatility, and driving fun.
Worst FeaturesI don't like the weak stock radio, lack of armrest, and how the heater takes forever to deliver heat in very cold weather.
