Fun to drive, and Low cost to operate
By mbielick on
2005 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)
I was looking for a low cost to operate vehicle, and I was not impressed with the hybrids. I bought this car, and was amazed by the 'fun-to-drive' aspect of it. The huge amount of torque available from the engine gives you a lot more 'zip' than you would expect from a diesel. Highway cruising is great, with barely 2,400 RPM turning at 70 MPH. Although I have only driven the car 5,000 miles to date, there has been nothing wrong with the car, and I'm getting over 47 MPG each time I fill.
Favorite Features
Tight steering, and much better acceleration than I expected. Quiet on the highway, with a bit of diesel clatter at idle. The sunroof ooperates well, and the monsoon stereo is better than most stock systems.
Suggested Improvements
Offer XM/Sirius radio as an option. Offer the 2.0 liter diesel from the Passat for those who really want to have fun.
