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

Review

My Jetta wagon is getting 45-50 mpg in mixed driving. From what I hear, the TDI automatic doesn't do nearly as well, so if you want a TDI, I'd suggest the manual. Beyond the fuel economy issue, I also really like the way it drives. The engine has a narrower power band than a gas engine, but has lots of torque in the 1500- 3000 rpm range. The TDI feels surpisingly strong for 100. The car itself is well put together and, so far, has had no problems. (knock on wood) I really like the way the instruments look at night, with the blue LED lighting. The interior is attractive and comfortable for this thin, 5'11" guy.

Favorite Features

Fuel economy Attractive, high quality interior

Suggested Improvements

I'd like the more powerful TDI available in Europe
