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


I drive this thing hard commuting in and out of SF. I get a consistent 37 mpg during my two week fill up period and that's hard driving up and over SF hills with some freeway mixed in. It's comfortable for me as the driver but the back seat is a bit limited in leg space behind me because I am 6'2" and the seat is all the way back leaving about 5 inches of leg space back there. No Mechanical problems ever, always run low sulfur. Even with the 90 HP it still pulls fully loaded w 4 people and gear over highway 80 Donner pass at 75-80 mph. I smile at the SUV's because I know I'm getting at least 2 or 3 X their mpg as I pass them over the mountain :)

Best Features

low end power, MPG, looks good, great sound system, handles well, fun to drive.

Worst Features

Back seat leg room.
