Wouldn't sell it
By tom on


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


I agree with the cup holder syndrome and the back seat space issue, but we still get 49+ mpg on the highway after 135k miles. One minor problem with a sensor but otherwise trouble free. Best small car we have owned in 40 years. As well as it is built, we plan to keep it for a long long time. A clear and shining example of why the US automotive industry is a failure.

Best Features

Mileage, fit and finish. As the diesel 2002 models were made exclusively in Germany, they don't suffer from the US or Mexican manufacturing quality problems.
