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

Review

Bought my Jetta just before the fuel crunch hit. Had been driving a Ford Diesel Excursion (yuk!) First trip with the Jetta averaged 45mpg 3400 mile round trip (five people and car top carrier). Improving steadily since. One recent "all highway cruise control speed limit inflate the tires to maximum inflation" run I got 54 mpg. No kidding! Comfortable and pleasing to be in - we created a mini SUV by adding a seat and seat belt in the rear. Put a aero ski car top carrier for luggage. When will other SUVer's figure this out?

Favorite Features

Fuel milage and diesel price. Comfrotable ride. Great standard sound system. Extremely quiet - wouldn't know it was a diesel. Good acceleration.

Suggested Improvements

Hopefully low sulfer diesel will soon be readily available. It would be great to have satellite radio as an option. I added one myself later. Need extra cup holder in rear. Second one in front is awkward to reach when center arm rest in use.
