2000 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDi 4dr Sedan


When I first got my TDI, I loved it,
raved about it. The mileage was great
and the car looked sharp. Now it's a
different story. I've sunk close to
$2000 into it in the last 18 months.
Everything from an engine temp sensor,
to glow plug relay, to brakes. Not to
mention the $100 oil changes. I've
even had the rear cup holder replaced.
Now the temp gauge isn't working and
the "check engine" light is on again.
I'm sure that will be another $300. I
also found out this past weekend while
it was in the shop, that one of the
glow plugs is seized up and can't be
removed. I will never buy a VW again.

Best Features

Mileage, dash, exterior styling, trunk space.

Worst Features

It all needs fixing. In addition to above, the cup holders are next to worthless, the seats are uncomfortable (not to mention the lint), the shifter is notchy, and the paint will chip if you look at it wrong.
