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


No cold weather start problems, even in
a cold climate. Heated seat option is
awesome! Well-mannered car, somewhat
vague suspension, a "civilized" ride
that gives up a little on sporty
handling but gains in economy and (so
far) reliability. Fuel ratings not
quite what was quoted, I average 40mpg,
however, I drive the car pretty fast on
the interstate, and it's happy at 85-
mph! Relatively quiet, solid build, a
safe car to be in, excellent corrosion
warranty, a good 2 family car with a
little junior. Lousy rear seat leg
room for adults though.

Best Features

"Switchblade" ignition key, heated seats and rear view mirrors, nice stereo, very good gas mileage and power for a lowly 90-hp rated motor. It will pleasantly surprise you!

Worst Features

Bogus cupholder design, lack of cupholders, the drivers side seat sucks, in my opinion. Improve on handling and suspension settings.
