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


MY Jetta TDI is a great great
automobile. I average 47mpg with
combination driving (75 city/25 hwy),
it doesn't take off like a 3.5
Altima..but then again an Altima (no
matter what engine) can't get
50mpg...ever. It can, however, get
out into traffic with no
problems...was pleasantly surprised at
it's ability to go from a stop. It is
loads more comfortable than the
Corolla I traded in on it, which is
important when travelling more than 2
hours at a time. The has great build
quality, and is surprisingly quiet on
the road too.

Best Features

Heated seats, spray nozzles, and mirrors; Monsoon sound system; steering wheel audio controls

Worst Features

The car could be a bit larger with more rear leg room (but my kids are very small and don't complain). An option for a built in video system (headrests maybe).
