2000 Jetta TDI Love affair
By jlarm3 on


2002 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


Jetta TDI is a marvelous car and gives
great economy. We get 39 city and 42
highway. We don't "baby" it, but
rather, drive is pretty hard. We have
put 53,000 miles on it in 13 months of
driving. Very happy with the ride
quality and the solid feel of the car.
Only 2 complaints!!!
1. Why so short an interval on the
timing belt change? Calls for change at
40,000 miles (w/auto trans). I was not
made aware of this requirement until
after I bought the car, and was
surprised at frequency and cost.
2. Front bumper too low. Don't park
within 5 feet of the concrete stops or
curbs. You will pull off the bumper
cover every time!

Best Features

Love the engine. Very peppy and quiet for a diesel.

Worst Features

Fortify the front bumper mounting brackets. Also, please develope a stronger timing belt to last more than 40-50,000 miles. Replacement a little costly.
