Biodiesel '03 TDI
By Eric J on


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


Bought an '03 Volkswagen Jetta TDI with 60,000 miles on it. I drove it home, changed the fuel filter and oil and filled up with 100% ASTM certified biodiesel. Now we get avg. 47 mpg hwy and run on domestically produced renewable fuel! The 177 ft lbs. of torque gives this car all the muscle anyone needs to cruise at 70 and have a good time on the road.

Best Features

I love the diesel motor, fuel economy, renewable fuel option, stereo, handling, ABS, 4 wheel disk brakes, solid body, lots of airbags, etc..

Worst Features

Get rid of rubberized coating on door handles that wears off, the shifter boot needs to be stronger and more durable, and some plastic doo-dads need to be stronger.
