2001 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


I absolutely love my TDI. It took a
while to find one with a 5 speed, but
it was worth the hunting. I can't
believe this kind of pick-up from a
standstill on a diesel. And naturally,
unless you're in the market for a
hybrid, you can't beat the mileage.
Plus, even though the car is
(comparatively) low-priced as far as
German sedans go, it seems to be an eye-
catcher, not to mention that there
almost seems to be a TDI
clique/club/cult? Comfortable and
stylish interior for two adults (don't
plan any road trips for four 6-footers)
Only real complaint is: why doesn't
VW give up on the dial knob for
seatback adjustment that they've been
using ever since the (original) Beetle?
