43 MPG!

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


This is my first VW. I chose the Jetta because of the optional 1.9L TDI Diesel powerplant. I commute 70 miles daily and I was looking for a way to save some cash. I got what I expected. My previous car drank 89 octane fuel and at best got 26 mpg. I'm not spending any more on diesel fuel and the savings are there.

Despite its 90hp rating the Jetta is a kick to drive. The turbocharger delivers when you step on the "gas".

Best Features

The blue and red dashboard lighting scheme.

Worst Features

Offer the 1,9L TDI diesel as an optional engine on the GLX trim level cars.
