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

Review

Although a Jetta might cost a little more going in, with a TDI powerplant, it can last far longer than other low- price, mid-milage cars. I don't know who said 43mpg for the TDI, but I've gotten over 55mpg. With gas prices going up, who could say no? This is my third diesel VW, and I won't drive a gasoline car again. Performance, awesome pickup, tight brakes, and lots of room to personalize with aftermarket gizmos.

Favorite Features

TDI powerplant. Hybrids are a good idea, but this is a reality now, which gets better miles on the highway than any hybrid can dream. Also, the trunk is huge.

Suggested Improvements

The headlights seem to burn out quickly. That's the only thing wrong with this car.
