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


There is no better work car! BEST FEATURE: I can drive in 3rd gear at speeds as low as 15 mph allow many turns without shifting, permitting me to eat while driving in heavy traffic. The handbrake is conveniently positioned for handbrake turns unlike many manufacturers. Sit in the back and experience a hungry growl not heard in the front! The car cleans up in easily too when splattered with mud on the inside. How's it on the freeway? 70 mph is an idle. 90 mph is where is feels right. 110 mph is a little noisy. Pickup on icy terrain is so exceptional that you realize 4-wheel drive is unecessary in northern urban areas.

Best Features

The sound of the car!!! I drove a bmw 325ci and what a numb experience that is. The Jetta has been sensory engineered to give the right amount of noise and vibration to know what the heck your actually doing while behind the wheel! Young kids would get indoctrinated to VW by the back seat growl.

Worst Features

By 20K miles, need to fork out good wad of cash for oil, filters, etc. Well, this better pay off! There is an annoying crackle from the rear left tweeter.
