unreliable and overpriced
By Samson13 on


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


Except fpr great milage, the car is
cramped, especially in the back, very
expensive when compared to other makes
with gas engine, very expensive to
maintain and mechanically unreliable.
Had trounle with whell bearing, glow
plugs, trunk struts, rear brakes. Oil
change and filter are ridiculously
expensive. Apholstery is a lint
magnet. The saving in gas does not
justify the extra costs in breakdown
and routine maintenance.

Best Features

milage, display light.

Worst Features

bring price to a comparable level with the civiv/corolla/mazda 3, add reliability and reduce maintenance costs.
