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


My wife loves this car, and I have to say, it has really grown on me too. The interior is perfectly proportioned for a women, but is a little tight for larger men. I'm 5'11" and 190 lbs, and its just large enough not to be a problem. The diesel mileage is great, and I love the heavy rumble of the engine. It has tons of torque. Aside from the size, the things to look out for are the front bumper partially popping off (you will learn how to pop it back on again) when you park too close to a curb in front. Also the seat adjustment is annoying. All that aside, this is a rock-solid reliable car with great fuel efficiency and a fun drive. I highly recommend it.

Best Features

The gas (diesel) mileage is GREAT! Also, the torque on this car makes it very peppy.

Worst Features

The front bumper should be redesigned so the spoiler scraping on a curb doesn't cause it to fall off. Also, it needs a studier center console and more intuitive seat adjustments.
