1999 Volkswagen Jetta TDi 4dr Sedan


Primary reason for buying was to avoid
semi-weekly gas station fillups as I
have a 100 mi. daily commute. Milege
is better than advertised. I get 49-52
mpg. Paying dividends now with gas >
$2.00 and diesel @ $1.70! It has been
extremely reliable, it has never broken
down or failed to start, even in
subzero New England weather. Never any
problems with electrical. Glow plugs
had to be replaced once (not needed to
start car) and were rather expensive,
but you can find them cheap on the
internet rather than pay the
dealerships insane prices. 135K miles
to date and many more I'm sure. Great

Best Features

Milege, comfortable firm seats, large trunk, dependability

Worst Features

Takes a long time to heatup on cold mornings, skinny steering wheel, should have variable intermittant wipers, cannot fit winter wiper blades so they ice up
