2005 Volkswagen Jetta New TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


Never owned a diesel or VW before. I needed a high mpg car for a longer commute. I was leaning towards a hybrid, but I test drove it and I was impressed. Just turned 1,100 miles on the car. It's been a great commuter car so far. The car handles well and latest safety test rating are and added bonus.

Best Features

Outstanding fuel economy (over 42 mpg), lots of trunk space, nice wood trim, lots of torque when needed, good sound system, and sweet updated exterior styling.

Worst Features

Door speakers rattle sometimes from deep bass notes (looking for the VW dealer fix), have factory tinted windows standard, make the satellite radio a single option (not part of a package), and improve the rear seating A/C flow.
