Driving the new TDI
By Oliver on
2005 Volkswagen Jetta New TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)
we bought the new Jetta TDI just last week. It was the second the dealer has received and they sell on the spot. We had to put down a deposit in order to have a chance to buy it. This is not a small car anymore, we bought it as our family car (family of four). We already own the TDI wagon which has been great for the last 3 years but it got a little tight in the rear for the kids. Once we took it on the road we decided to buy it that day. It is the TDI with package 1 which includes the moonroof and the premium sound system. No need to have the package 2 or 3 unless you want wood trimming and leather seating. The leatherette feels like real leather but it is more durable.
The interior is comparable to any high end vehicle and not found in any other compact car. The liitle things are great: cooling glove compartment, wipers with rain sensor, dual climate control, the loss of the Diesel sound and so much room in the back and trunk. Elegant design
Would like to have 6 gear manual shift as an option.
