Really like my TDI Jetta Wagon
By new VW owner on


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


TDI Jetta Wagon GLS in an automatic.
Automatic is peppy - it can
take warming up as you drive when
outside temps. are cold (~10 deg. F)
before getting to its best performance.
Good torque to get started & it seems
to get better as the engine is broken
in (only 2000 mi. so far). Driving a
little more conservatively (safely,
that is) to see just how much over 40
MPG I can get - a bonus.
Good std. features on the GLS (incl.
the moonroof!) - got the Monsoon sound
system since that's what the dealer had
and the TDI Jetta Wagon is hard to
find. Sounds great!
Like the lit dashboard at night
& "secret" storage near spare tire's a

Best Features

- Excellent fuel economy (let's get that cleaner diesel already (2006?!)) - TDI engine - Monsoon sound system - Cool dash

Worst Features

- Add MP3 playback to CD system (or to the CD changer) - Improve rear window wiper spray (too much of a stream to work well) - Increase the rear leg room a little - move the cupholders!!!
