Diesels do it better
By mbeer on


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


The diesel engine was the main selling
feature for me. I get well over 50mpg
on the freeway & have no complaints
about power. This car pulls pretty hard
on the freeway when passing, no down
shifting needed. The attention to
detail when designing this car is
obvious & material quality equals that
of BMW or Benz. A few creeks & rattles
more then a german car should have but
nothing excessive. Only problems Ive
had was a torn weather strip and a
seeping oil seal on transmission,
dealer took care of both.

Best Features

Diesel engine, Gas milage-54mpg freeway, Blue/red interior lighting, Excellent build quality & materials

Worst Features

Stronger front cupholder, velor interior fabric collects way too much lint-especially black.
