2004 Volkswagen Jetta GL TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


How does $10/liter for oil sound?
That's what my dealer tried to sell it
to me for. I went online and bought
it for $6.40/Liter. How does
$34/liter for transmission fluid
sound? That's what my dealer wants.
Again, I went online and found it for
half that (which is still outrageous!).
I wanted fuel efficiency and that's
why I bought the Jetta TDI, but it's
an expensive car to operate. Buy a
Honda...I wish I had.

Best Features

I like the power of the diesel, as well as the smooth operation of the car. This car has the nicest air conditioners I've ever owned.

Worst Features

Don't use a light tan cloth interior. Make the oil drain plug more obvious and accessible. Put an exterior drain on the water separator.
