Best Small Car
By G. Bishop on
Vehicle2005 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5A)
ReviewMy search was for a reliable, fuel efficient car with a ride that didn't cause it's passengers pain. I demonstrated most all the small fuel efficient cars including the hybrids. While the TDI Jetta was the last one I demonstrated, it was the best in build quility, performace and ride. It abounds with lots of standard equipment. All-around air bags, four wheel disc brakes and much more. While it is not a street racer off the line, the Jetta's turbo diesel runs with the best on the expressway. Best MPG is 47, Worst MPG is 38 in the city with A/C on. Insurance costs are a lot lower than the hybrids. (a savings of $400 to $800 per year)
Best FeaturesMechanically, the TDI Jetta is a mature design. Its reliability has been outstanding. The ride is better than any small or mid size car I have driven. The interior sound level is excellent. The build quility is superiority any other small car except, maybe a BMW. Price / Value ++++
Worst FeaturesNone. It seems to be the best balance of size, reliabity, cost and perforance. Works for me!!!!
