Great TDI Economy Car
By Mroto on


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


We get 47 avg. MPG in combined
city/highway driving and 52-53MPG at
steady freeway driving speeds. The
engine is the best part of the car! Not
a slow car by far and comfortable ride
for a small car. Only knock is the fit
and finish quality of some of the
parts. The paint on the interior door
handles flaked off for instance and VW
does not stand behind this kind of
problem, rear seat split on seam and VW
also almost balked on this! Outside
paint clear coat is peeling in a couple
spots. Car itself is solid however so I
feel these issues are comparitively

Best Features

Heated seats are great! Fuel economy in real world driving is 47MPG, Peppy if not fast pick up. Effortlessly cruises at 75-80 MPH

Worst Features

6th speed manual would be nice as would a little more rear legroom would be nice also. This is a great economy car!
