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

Review

Bought it for business mostly freeway driving to max MPG. Getting 46 to 53 MPG with plenty of power. Except for a little puff of blue smoke on cold start up cannot tell it is a diesel. Running great so far. Really neat little car for one person. Not really enough room for passengers. Terrible back seats for passengers but easy to lay down for storage of lugguge. Blue instrument panel lighting takes a little getting use to but looks cool. Been in snow and ice for two weeks now. Manual trans really helps. Have 4000 miles on it now and would buy it again.

Favorite Features

Power and economics of engine. MONSOON sound system. Telescopic steering wheel.

Suggested Improvements

Heater controls limited hard to opeatate. Need larger windshield washer storage for winter driving. Continuous MPG readout should be standard not option. More dash storage for CD's tapes.
