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


Bought it for business mostly freeway
driving to max MPG. Getting 46 to 53
MPG with plenty of power. Except for a
little puff of blue smoke on cold start
up cannot tell it is a diesel. Running
great so far.

Really neat little car for one person.
Not really enough room for passengers.
Terrible back seats for passengers but
easy to lay down for storage of

Blue instrument panel lighting takes a
little getting use to but looks cool.

Been in snow and ice for two weeks now.
Manual trans really helps.

Have 4000 miles on it now and would buy
it again.

Best Features

Power and economics of engine. MONSOON sound system. Telescopic steering wheel.

Worst Features

Heater controls limited hard to opeatate. Need larger windshield washer storage for winter driving. Continuous MPG readout should be standard not option. More dash storage for CD's tapes.
