2004 PD TDI WAGON

ReviewThis is my second VW TDI. Other cars
include a Mercedes and Corvette.
The new 2004 PD TDI has noticably more
torque and more power, however, fuel
mileage is not quite as good as the
2000-2003 TDI's. I got 45 -50 mpg on
last TDI; 2004 PD TDI gets about 40-45
mpg... still very good.
I would avoid the light beige cloth
interior... too hard to keep clean.
(I known this from my 2000 TDI).
Overall, very happy with car and would
Best FeaturesCar is rock solid. No rattles or squeaks. Build quality is near perfect. So far, no problems during first 6,000 miles. Stereo system is above average. Good solid towing capacity for a small car (1300+ lbs).
Worst FeaturesRear seats difficult to fold down because you must 1st remove all rear headrests. Also, front seats must be slid forward, making it difficult to comfortably drive (I'm 5'10")when carrying cargo. 6' drivers will NOT be able to drive when rear seatbacks are folded down.
