2006 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


This car seems to have the same issues as other cars.
I bought it new with a grand total of three miles on it.
60,000 miles later the airbag light is on and a coolant temperature sensor has failed.
Don't know about the airbag light but the temperature sensor is about $20 from NAPA.
The fuel economy is excellent, I average 47 mpg to and from work.
I use the cruise control as much as possible and that seems to help.
I am not a VW guy and to be honest the car is a little feminine for me but I'm long over it.
It does use weird oil and oil filters but so far haven't had a problem at Jiffy Lubes across the country.
I definatly recommend this car, I think its better then most others

Best Features
