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


I've had the car for about two months
so far, so good. I have to cover
Northern California and Northern Nevada
with round trips in the 800 mile range.
So far averaging 40-42 mpg with the
automatic and good driver ride comfort.
With the cost of gasoline going over
$2.00 per gallon, I glad to have a
diesel. The Monsoon audio is the best
I've heard from a factory install.

Best Features

Diesel gets great mpg and plenty of power going over the mountains with the cruise control at 70 mph. Seat heaters are great with temp control. The leather seats are very supportive, you can ride for hours without a problem.

Worst Features

On/off cruise control should be on the steering wheel and steering controls should have back-lights for night time. Cup holders in console are not an easy location with the arm rest and parking brake location. Changing the oil is quite the task too.
