Around town, this vehicle averages roughly 37-39 mpg- not too shabby. However, one must consider the skyrocketing price of diesel fuel into this equation... see full Volkswagen Jetta review

2003 4dr Wagon turbocharged 90hp 1.9L I4 Diesel
5-speed manual FWD
What's not to like about 40+ mpg around town and 55+ mpg on the highway? Seriously, any car after this will be a disappointment. And it's not like the engine is a wheezy rattler. see full Volkswagen Jetta review

2003 Volkswagen Jetta Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2004 4dr Wagon turbocharged 180hp 1.8L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Even when driving extremely conservatively, I have never been able to get much more than 30 mpg highway on this car, which seems low for a car of this size and power. A taller overdrive might help in this regard. see full Volkswagen Jetta review
2004 4dr Sedan 115-horsepower 2.0L I4
5-speed manual FWD
It could be better-I average 27-28 MPG in mixed city/highway driving. see full Volkswagen Jetta review
2003 4dr Sedan 200-horsepower 2.8L V6
6-speed manual FWD
My mileage during the winter was not too good. My daily commute is short, so the car barely gets to full operating temperature. My Civic Si did considerably better around town. see full Volkswagen Jetta review
2002 4dr Sedan 115-horsepower 2.0L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
I average between 18-22. Not very good for an economy car. see full Volkswagen Jetta review
