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


I've had my TDI Jetta Sedan for a over
8 mos. and 12.5k miles. MPG as high as
52 before I put a roof rack on it. I
still get over 40 with a kayak & bike
on the roof. I love the fact that there
are studs for mounting the roof rack
firmly already built into the car. You
won't win any drag races with this car,
but you can easily merge with traffic
on highways & pass cars on back roads.
The shifter is smooth & direct. With
the back seat down, storage room is
great. Handling & ride are great. Seats
& ergos are the best I've had. Other
than a blown fuse the 1st weekend I had
the car, nothing has gone wrong. I am
very pleased with my TDI.

Best Features

Gas mileage, seats & ergos, stereo, storage capacity, ride and handling, looks, quality.

Worst Features

front cupholder blocks the stereo controls. could use more rear legroom.
