    not really it has like 70hp and 200 torque lol
    but gets I think 49mpg also it does not have to put up with smog crap since its diesel

    I thought about buying one but I like the A4s more then again they do get GREAT MPG

    BTW they also make a TDI Bug

    Insights are ugly as sin. But I would drive it for the gas mileage.

    Every yuppie yale girl and her over groomed poodle drive those damned TDI jettas and golfs in CT. They love 'em. I don't see whats so appealing. I guess it's the gas mileage. Or maybe having more torque than most honda's will ever see.
    I dunno...

    An old thread... but I wanted to say that the VW TDI series is very nice. 50 miles to the gallon, lots of torque and the cars can be rechipped for more power and even better fuel effiency. Last month, I heard that my dad in California was thinking about getting another car (currently he's driving a '90 white Camry DX V6 5-speed) and I desperately wanted him to buy this 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI wagon that was white and 5-speed. Aargh! It would have been the perfect car for him. Oh well... :(

    Here's a review on the TDI Jetta wagon that I wanted my dad to buy in here. I like the wagons. They are a nice size. I wish that there was still a Civic wagon available. *sigh*

    And also cruise the www.tdiclub.com forums for more info. :)

    VW TDI's are perfect cars for parents and people who want good gas milage. I am an ex-VDub owner, and they are good cars, they have their quirks but then again so does my honda. If I was not so into my driving fast and somewhat reckless stage of my life I would totally rock a TDI two door golf, with GTI rims...

    Btw, I do hate the new Bug and the Jetta sedans etc... well at this point in my life, I just hate sedans. lol. But the wagons are just a nice size imo.

    Haha! It's a very nice car dude, but it's just not for me. I think that I could be happy in my little hatchback forever. Sedans are for families, or very social people. lol. Having just one passenger in my car that isn't my dog, is a burden to me. So hating sedans only means that I could never own one.


    Plus, whatever happened to "you are not your car"? :D
