Really a good car
By BlueTDIowner on


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


I have 103,000 miles on my 2001 VW Jetta
TDI since I bought it new.

I've followed all the maintenance
recommendations, and only use Delvac 1
oil in it, which I change myself every
10,000 miles.

Lifetime fuel economy is 46.8 mpg, and I
drive it pretty hard.

I've owned a lot of cars in my life, and
this is the most reliable car I've had
yet. As long as you buy the diesel fuel
where the big rigs buy theirs, you will
be OK in the winter.

Best Features

Leather interior and heated seats are nice in the winter.

Worst Features

I honestly don't know how they could make this car any better. Some people say "build quality", but I haven't had any problems at all. Maybe I got lucky, or maybe if all VW's were as solid as mine then nobody would have anything to complain about.
