2004 Volkswagen Jetta GL TDI 4dr Wagon (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)
Review
We've had our 2004 GL TDI auto (Tiptronic) wagon for 4 months and 7K miles. Love it! This car replaces a 2001 GLX VR6, and I don't miss the added power of the V6 that much. The TDI is wonderful--punchy at all speeds, with a great surge of turbo power always available. Gave up some creature comforts in going to the GL, but the seats are still great and the car still has good featutes. Tons of cargo room, and a great ride for long trips. We regularly average 40-42 MPG in mixed driving. A wonderful car! Our 2nd Jetta and we've been happy with both.
Favorite Features
TDI power and mileage, wagon versatility, great value for $21K. Wonderful seats, quiet ride (no diesel clatter at all unless at idle), control of Tiptronic transmission.
Suggested Improvements
Like many others have said, the car has some interior rattles that are annoying. Stock stereo stinks, making us miss the Monsoon unit from the 2001. Armrest should come with all models--can't even order one for the GL. Make available with 4Motion.
