Sad I sold, buying a new one
By golfer18 on


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


I have owned 2 jetta tdis, a 98 and
02. this review is for 02, beautiful
car, cool look, exc gas mileage at
53mpg at best, tank range i maxed at
765 then i got nervous and filled up.
Loved both cars, but dumped the 02 due
to some aesthetic quality issues. I
had a door/window rattle that had me
take it back to dealer 6 times in a
year. Despite ripping car apart,
removing seats, etc, damaging the
vehicle during repair etc, it was
never fixed to satisfaction. I
pursued lemon law, but found a buyer
in the meantime and sold the car. I
miss it though and will likely buy a
new jetta 04 or passat 04 turbodiesel
only. .
