Long Term Happiness
By tdiguy3 on


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


I bought this car new in 2004.
In the 9.5 years I have owned this car it has bean, overall, fantastic.
I have kept up regular service.
The major problems I have had are: a sensor, front wheel bearing, rear wheel bearing, the heater blower motor, and a the heater resistors...replaced a few times.
The heater repairs I did myself so cost was just the parts.
Considering I have had this car this long and have almost 260k on it, this is small potatoes.
Overall this has been the most reliable car I have owned.
It was not built in Mexico but rather came out of the Wolfsburg plant and that is why, in my opinion it has been such a great car.
I have had no engine or tranny probs at all.

Best Features

I love the fantastic mileage I get with this car. Best heated seats...better than my 2011 Subaru Outback!!
