Great car for the money
By Mike33444 on


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


Great gas mileage - 36 city and 48
highway. Comfy, yet not overdone with
luxury items. All of the features you
need in a wagon at a great price. New
engine gives 100 HP and does make it
move - for a diesel. Compared it to
others - Suburu, Volvo, Audi - and they
don't come close to value and price.

Best Features

Diesel - MILEAGE, TORQUE, RELIABILITY... Holds two dogs (Goldens) plus all gear needed for a boating weekend. Very quiet inside and out and quite responsive.

Worst Features

More leg room for the rear seats - move them back a little. It would make lowering the seat backs easier too. Terrible AM reception. Dealer's service tech told me that VW radios are notoriously bad in this department - even if you have the "Monsoon" option.
