My VW TDI Jetta loses power going uphill, please can you tell me why? I had the fuel filter changed.
Q: Are 2001 VW JETTA TDI TURBO DIESEL good cars? A: I second that – YES! I had a 2002 VW TDI and it was great! Excellent gas mileage… If you’re looking at buying one used you’ll want to have a few things checked out, though. Jetta’s have a bad habit of burning out the power window motors as well as having some parking break issues. I don’t know about the windows, but the parking break piece that was faulty was recalled at least in the 2002 version, so have a VW shop run the VIN for anything that still needs to be updated!
