Are you Kidding
By Gman on


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


I bought this from a Lady in Kansas over the internet and she drove it to me in Colorado, delivered in pretty much perfect shape. I have over a million miles on it now and I am pretty much shocked by the other owners reviews. It was built in Mexico and has had the usual faults like electric window problems and seat heaters but that was all covered in the warranty and replace with no hassle at the dealers. On the last days of my warranty I had them replace the Turbo as easy as if it was a light bulb. Since then I have done most the work on it myself. A lot cheaper than mechanics will do. Replaced the thermostat for 15$ in thirty minutes. $200 plus at most shops.

Best Features

Incredibly smart vehicle, great speed, fun to drive. 34mph driving hard passing a lot racing through mountains. 51mph if driving conservative. 43mph is my average. Great handling, cornering with good Michilen tires.

Worst Features

Bumper will remove easy if you park over a high curb. Back seat stinks.
