2002 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 1.8T 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Bought the first TDI diesel wagon in
our state. Now have 25K miles on it
and averaging 47.5 mpg. Ours was
totally assembled in Germany and have
had no mechanical and electrical
failures. Note I was told by EPA that
they have NOT tested the latest VW
diesels for pollution specs and their
website uses model year 2000 for their
information which is totally out of
date and erroneous. Second, why won't
US manufacturers or EPA look at the
extensive diesel availability in Europe
including pollution controls? Suggest
checking carefully as to the origin of
the car. Mexican versions appear to
have many problems.
