Love that TDI !!
By tonymro on


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


I never considered owning a VW until
reading the rave reviews for the TDI
engine. TDI is quiet, starts quickly
even in severe cold, plenty of torque.
Fabulous fuel efficiency. Chose Jetta
TDI wagon over more expensive Volvo
V40. Acquiring the exact car I wanted
was extremely difficult given that TDIs
are on limited allocation and
dealerships wanted to tack on
unreasonable markup.

Best Features

Without a doubt, 48 mpg from the responsive trouble-free TDI engine! Long term cost of ownership much lower than a hybrid Prius or Insight.

Worst Features

Make automatic climate control, automatic dimming mirror, fog light options available for GLS TDI too. Allow front seats to slide further back when rear seats are folded down.
