This Car Saved My Life...

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


Last week, I was hit by another car on
the freeway and my car wentnto a tree
at 65mph. Airbags deployed, seat belt
pulled us back into the seats, engine
dropped to prevent driver/passenger
crushing, front end absorbed the shock,
hazard lights went on automatically and
the door locks released.We opened the
doors, stepped out and WALKED AWAY with
a few minor bruises, abrasions and a
sore shoulder & neck.
Unfortunately new OR used Jetta TDI GLS
Wagons are as scarce as hen's teeth,
but we purchased a 2003 Jetta TDI GLS
Sedan yesterday to replace our totalled
Wagon. That car saved my life. Thank-
You Volkswagen...

Worst Features

Move cup holder - condensation or spillage goes right down into charger/lighter unit.
