Best Wagon for the Money!
By structoman on


2004 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDI 4dr Wagon (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


Compared a Subaru Outback Wagon, an
Audi A4 Quattro Wagon, a Volvo V70
Wagon, and a VW Jetta Wagon. I
eliminated the Subaru because Japanese
cars are just to plastic on the
interior. I narrowed it down to the
Audi, Volvo and VW and compared
everything- from quality of
components, performance, comfort and
space and decided on the VW Jetta. The
diesel engine has great torque and sips
fuel. It is solidly built, good looking
was $10k less (paid $21k) than the Audi
or Volvo. It is identical to the Audi
A4 Quattro Avant Wagon, except that it
is front-wheel drive and not all-wheel

Best Features

Diesel engine, quality interior seats, trim and options. Easy to find controls, and excellent Monsoon CD Stereo system- 8 component speakers system is all you need.

Worst Features

For some reason, the AM radio reception is poor. Was told that this is a common complaint among Jetta and Passat owners. Would like to have power adjustable seats, instead of manual levers and wheels.
