I'd still be driving it but...
By Dad on


2000 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDi 4dr Sedan


Loved this car. Had 8 miles when I drove off lot, it was "retired" at 100K. Drove it like a high school kid and got 45 mpg. Took good care of it mechanically, synthetic oil changed twice a year, regular dealer maintenance (mostly). Went 90K miles on original timing belt (recommended at 60K). I tried "babying" it to improve mpg but got worse. It liked going to redline on every shift. I'd still be driving it and expected to go another 100K if my daughter had not totaled it (she walked away with bumps and bruises only).

Best Features

Fuel economy, 600 miles on a tank, good handling, cruise all day at 80 mph, fun to drive for something that got such good mpg, stayed with the good Michelin tires and got ~25K miles on them.

Worst Features

Back seat not so comfortable.
