A great car with great mileage...
By meganuke on
Vehicle2003 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDI 4dr Wagon (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)
ReviewKeep an eye on certain maintenance
items: always use synthetic oil
(Delvac 1), keep an extra mass air flow
sensor on hand, and find someone with a
VAG-COM to make adjustments to the EGR
setting to reduce intake clogging.
This should lead to many trouble free
miles. I regularly travel over 800
miles per tank of fuel, averaging over
48 mpg. Even spirited driving nets 42
Best FeaturesCar has great pulling power. No need to downshift to pass, even going uphill. Fuel economy can't be beat!
Worst FeaturesVW needs to fix the MAF so they last longer. I highly recommend checking out tdiclub.com as they have a very knowledgable user base and are willing to help.
