Vehicle

2005 Volkswagen Jetta New TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)

Review

Poor man's BMW 325i, rich man's Toyota Corrola. Great fuel economy,averaging 45 mpg in the city. Fun to drive: handles extremely well in tight corners and suspension is nice and firm. Acceleration is sluggish, and barely adequate. The handling, suspension and sound of the diesel engine delude you into believing that you are going very fast. Very comfortable and well laid-out interior design. Exterior is sharp looking.

Favorite Features

Fuel economy, handling, suspension, interior design.

Suggested Improvements

Sluggish acceleration, poor side mirror controls (joystick is difficult to position), engine still noisy (but improved from previous diesels).
