VW Jeta Diesel in Minnesota - First Year
By stormovick on
Vehicle1993 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan
ReviewCold winter driving was my main concern with
the diesel engine but with the electrically
heated seats and it's good heater, this is the
warmest car I've owned. The manual gear box
makes better milage and shifts easy. Comfort
on long trips over 1000 miles was an other
concern I had: not to worry, the ride is not too
rough and the good handling makes driving
fun. Short trips have cut my mileage down but
I've still averaged 47+ for the first 22,000
Best FeaturesThe extra long range before refueling is good: 600 to 800 miles. The heated seats are needed in Minnesota winters. The Turbo gives this car a top speed of 120 MPH, thus a 80 MPH cruse speed is not a problem.
Worst FeaturesThe new Euro diesels are more powerful and when mated to a six speed gear box provide better highway mileage yet. Also the Cd drag fractor for the Jeta is 0.30, not bad but I'd like to see 0.26 like some of the new cars.
