I'm new to these kind of websites but I am trying to gain as much knowledge as possible for my up coming purchase. I am looking to pick up a used TDI Jetta and am looking for some tips. I want to know what to look for when buying one and what year is the best. I am currently thinking about the 2005.5. I am aware of all the common faults but am wondering if all this can be avoided if all maintenance that is scheduled is done and done properly. I am planning on buying my new TDI in Sept. so I don't have long to find the right one for me. PLEASE HELP TDI owners!!!!
