Amazed at Jetta TDI power & speed
By plaaaaane on


2003 Volkswagen Jetta GL TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


Had it for a week now. Was worried about the speed/power thing for a small engine. (I had a 4 cyl Ranger that couldnt keep up speed at top of Sunshine Skyway bridge). This TDI accelerates in 5th gear from 80 mph nearing the top of the bridge with no sign of slowing down!

The dealer had Hondas so I checked them out- the 51 mpg one. I thought the plastic felt as cheap as my Subaru 76 DL which I loved at the time. The Honda sure wasnt worth a "MARKET ADJUSTMENT" the dealer put on all the Hondas. (What kind of nut would pay a market adjustment?)

Anyhow, the Jetta TDI is built solid, runs like a roadster and is comfortable. I love it.


Best Features

Speed/power, comfort, 49 mpg, build quality.

Worst Features

Additional 12 v outlets up front and a CD player that plays MP3s!
