How are Jetta in the winter........

I have been on a quest looking for a cheap TDi Jetta to drive around.... They are not popular around here... especially manuals.....

My question is how they are in the winter... Im really not looking for just a summer car.... Thanks...

That should get you a 90-something Passat.

I have a friend who owns a 2001 VW TDI 5 speed and it is very relaible car. Our winters up here are much like the winters in Michigan, cold, wet, snow, etc.. and she has had no problems with it. Great highway car and it gets about 60MPG. The only thing that does require attention is the timing belt every 160,000KM, thats about an $800.00 job to change one out.

I hear (or have heard) that they get a bit problematic after 100k...... Ask Andy he hangs out at TDI club with the Trekkies.....

Wrong. I only go there to occasionally stir up things now.

I have found that we are two totally different consumers.
