I love my TDI
By Tarheel TDI on


1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDi 4dr Sedan (midyear)


Sorry it seems almost everyone else
dislikes their Jetta. I have over 90K
on my TDI and have never had a problem
with my O2 sensor, transmission,
electrical system, light bulbs, brakes,
door ooze, or windows. MAF going bad at
85K and water pump wearing out at 90K
are the only mechanical items that gave
me heartburn. I empathize with the
folks who have seasonal rattles in the
interior as that is my only "major"
peeve in a car that is fun/comfortable
to drive and gets better than 50 MPG on
the highway. Our other car is a new
2001.5 Passat which has over 30K of
nearly trouble free miles. Our next car
will likely be a Jetta TDI wagon or a
Passat B6 TDI wagon.
