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


Having gone over the years through Volvo, Mercedes, Oldsmobile, Toyota and many different models VW, from a 56 beetle to a Vanagon camper, I am back having fun driving in my 04 TDI. In spite of having the odd expense that needs fixing (are there any car's that do not??) this car is an absolute joy to be in. The seats (mine is the "Sport" edition)are firm and comfy, and the acceleration and general performance not to mention the excellent fuel economy are yet hard to beat in a combined package as it is. Great headroom too, in spite of the sun/moonroof. I just love it!

Best Features

Great shifting gearbox, quickly heating seats, performance, fuel economy, great all-round visibility, electric and heated mirrors, muffled sound signal when using the keys to lock the car, rather then the loud annoying horn on many cars when doing this at night.

Worst Features

Better access to the arm rest storage as it gets in the way of the emergency brake, (has been improved on newer models already), maybe wider more useful protection mouldings along the doors to protect from careless nicks and bangs from other driver doors in parking lots.
