Zippy, for a diesel
By chsmaine on
Vehicle2003 Volkswagen Jetta GL TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)
ReviewI've had many VW's and this one is
terrific, like the others. The
turbodiesel is quick to start and
doesn't smoke a bit when driving or in
traffic. The car feels like it has
more than 90 hp, as the torque is so
strong. No need to downshift on hills
or to pass. Low RPM's on the highway
make for quiet cruising. Lots of
headroom (no sunroof) and storage
space. Mine has the updated console
with 3 cupholders (slide the rear one
back and it holds a large water bottle
in the gap provided by the slider.)
Great feel through the steering wheel
and suspension. Rides like a much
larger car. No complaints.
Best FeaturesLong cruising range - 500+ miles and you still have over 1/4 tank! Lots of headroom, which is a rarity in cars these days. Stereo (non-monsoon) sounds great - good bass punch - and has tape and cd as standard.
Worst FeaturesNothing major - how about an armrest as an accessory for the GL model.
