Mk5 tdi jetta DEFAULT

There are only two new cars in the U.S. market into which one can introduce diesel fuel without provoking costly damage: the $51,825 Mercedes-Benz E320 CDI and the $22,235 Volkswagen Jetta TDI. When 2007 rolls around and more stringent emissions requirements finish phasing in, we may find ourselves with just the Benz. Mercedes has shown us its particulate-filter-equipped and 2007-compliant E320 BlueTec, but Volkswagen hasn't revealed what it's doing to comply with the stricter standards. Presumably, VW will follow Mercedes and add similar technology to clean up the exhaust; however, VW has conceded that a 2007 diesel Jetta might not be ready here by the beginning of the year. If VW diesels are your bag, you're not entirely out of luck. The German automaker may stockpile 2006 Jetta TDIs, which it will sell into the 2007 calendar year until a true, emissions-compliant 2007 model is ready.

In September 2004, we pitted a Jetta TDI of the previous generation against its gas-sipping competition, and although the Jetta wasn't the quickest or most fuel efficient of the bunch, it offered a nearly gas-like experience while delivering 42 mpg on our highway loop and 33 mpg around town. The same fuel-conscious 100-hp, 1.9-liter turbocharged diesel four-cylinder that was under the hood of the aforementioned Jetta is carried over to the latest Jetta TDI. Now in its fifth generation, the Jetta has grown in size, refinement, sophistication, and price. A 200-hp GLI version of the Jetta even won a comparison test ("Everyday Heroes," February 2006), beating out two 10Best winners. So the question before us now is: How does the Jetta acquit itself when it has only half the horsepower?

If you're not interested in stoplight drag races, there's very little that says diesel about the TDI. There is a trace of turbo lag from a stop, which can be seen in the longish 11.6-second 5-to-60-mph run, but a more aggressive launch reduces the time to 10.3 seconds. The Jetta's 177 pound-feet of torque and optional six-speed dual-clutch Direct Shift Gearbox keep the power available and give the impression that there are more than 100 horses underhood.

In park, the only telltale that you're in a diesel Jetta is the 4500-rpm redline on the tachometer and the glow-plug light — it looks like a fusilli noodle — that briefly illuminates when you start the engine. There's no waiting for the glow plugs — just hop in and turn the key. When the engine is cold, a bit of diesel clatter can be heard from inside the cabin, but once the engine is warm, there is mostly a mellow hum with only the slightest hint of the characteristic percolator-like gurgling. At idle it's a bit louder than the gas Jettas we've tested. At speed, the engine note moves into the background to the tune of 68 decibels at 70 mph — two more than the regular Jetta and two less than the GLI.

Don't tell your passengers they're in a diesel and it's unlikely they'll ever suspect there is anything unusual about your Jetta. Since diesel pumps are inevitably coated in diesel fuel, they might wonder why you smell like a trucker, but that's not the car's fault.

Despite our alpha driver tendencies — gotta be in front, gotta be in front — the TDI returned 36 mpg, which translates into a heady 522-mile range (the EPA highway number of 42 mpg equals 609 miles between stops). Jetta TDI drivers interested in running the tank empty in one sitting should consider the Stadium Pal or the Stadium Gal (

The Jetta TDI is so adept at hiding its weird side that hybrid cross-shoppers who revel in the statement and odd nature of their vehicles might be turned off by its unabashedly carlike personality. Volkswagen's diesel is an affordable, fuel-efficient car — never a hybrid spaceship — yet it retains enough diesel traits to keep things interesting. We're hoping VW finds a way to keep selling it.

Volkswagen Jetta (A5)

German compact car

Motor vehicle

The Volkswagen Jetta (A5 or Mk5, codename 1K) is a compact car, the fifth generation of the Volkswagen Jetta and the successor to the Volkswagen Bora which was manufactured by Volkswagen between 2005 and 2010, and up to 2012 in China. It is a three-box sedan derivative of the Golf Mk5. It was marketed as the Volkswagen Bora in Mexico and Colombia, Volkswagen Vento in Argentina, Chile and Uruguay, and Volkswagen Sagitar in China.[2][3][4]


The fifth generation debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show on 5 January 2005. After the New Beetle, it was the second Volkswagen product to make its world debut at a U.S. auto show.[5] The Mark 5 sedan went on sale in the USA prior to any other country, reflecting the importance of the car in that market for Volkswagen.[6] VW spent US$800 million to upgrade its Puebla facilities for this model's production. This included a US$290 million new engine production line for the 5-cylinder power plant, a US$50 million investment in the press shop, as well as a US$200 million purchase of 460 robots, which increased automation by 80%.

Although produced in the largest volumes in Mexico, final assembly of the car also takes place in China and South Africa for those respective markets.[7] Like initial production of the second generation in China, the Asian and African plants build the car from a complete knock down (CKD) kit shipped from the factory in Puebla. Local assembly in Kaluga, Russia, started in early 2008.[8] Assembly also began in India in 2008 at the Škoda factory in Aurangabad[9][10] As with the previously mentioned assembly plants, CKD kits from Volkswagen de México will be used.

The A5 Jetta is 170 millimetres (6.7 in) longer, 30 millimetres (1.2 in) wider, and has a 70 millimetres (2.8 in) longer wheelbase than the previous iteration. Interior room has increased from 2.46 cubic metres (87 cu ft) to 2.58 cubic metres (91 cu ft). In particular, rear legroom was increased by 65 millimetres (2.6 in) over the fourth generation. Luggage compartment volume is up to 453 litres (16 cu ft). One major change is the introduction of the first multi-linkindependent rear suspension in a Jetta. The design of the rear suspension resembles to the one found in the Ford Focus.[11] Volkswagen reportedly hired engineers from Ford who designed the suspension on the Focus.[12]

Styling reflects a new direction for the Volkswagen brand, with a new chrome front grille, first seen on the Golf Mk5 R32, which was trickled down to other models.[13] Some critics appreciated the new styling, whilst others dismissed it as just as bland as the 4th generation.[14][15]

For model year 2009, certain markets[which?] saw a new base model internal combustion engine and automatic transmission. The previous 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine and six-speed automatic transmission were replaced with a smaller, more powerful, and more fuel efficient, 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine and six-speed DSG transmission (the same as used in the new Golf Mk5). As a result of the change, fuel consumption has been improved (by 17% for the manual, from 8.2 L/100 km (34 mpg‑imp; 29 mpg‑US) down to 6.8 L/100 km (42 mpg‑imp; 35 mpg‑US)), and 23% for the automatic, from 8.6 L/100 km (33 mpg‑imp; 27 mpg‑US) down to 6.6 L/100 km (43 mpg‑imp; 36 mpg‑US). Power increased 7% from 110 kW (148 hp; 150 PS) to 118 kW (158 hp; 160 PS), while torque is up 20%. In addition, acceleration times 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) have improved, from 9.2 s to 8.5 s for the manual (an 8% improvement), and from 9.9 s to 8.5 s for the automatic (a 14% improvement).


The body of the fifth generation used high strength steel and laser welding with 35% of its body parts,[16] resulting in double-digit increases in both dynamic and torsional rigidity. An impact-absorbing front bumper which yields slightly in the event of a collision with a pedestrian, reducing the chance of injury. A new door design allows just the outer panel to be removed and replaced if damaged, rather than the entire door.[17] Safety features included side curtain airbags, seat-mounted rear side airbags, Electronic Stability Programme with Anti-Slip Regulation and Brake assist, as well as active head restraints. A Direct-Shift Gearbox (DSG) transmission, available dual-zone automatic climate control, and electro-mechanical power steering were also available.

The fifth generation car features a redesigned electrical system.[18] Control modules are used for various systems, dititally transmitted over Controller Area Network (CAN) buses at 500 kilobits per second — reducing the number of wires needed, and the opportunity for faults. Cars equipped with halogen headlamps have a 'VW' logo integrated into the bulb shield. In most markets, the rear lights use light-emitting diodes (LEDs). In North America, standard filament bulbs with a different design are used to comply with FMVSS 108.

Volkswagen has developed a very specific motor oil quality standard; oil meeting this standard must be used to ensure full warranty coverage.[19]


Volkswagen 2.5L Engine.

The internal combustion engines available are dependent on the destination market. In Europe, a range of the new generation Fuel Stratified Injection (FSI) engines are available. Additionally in that market, the car can be had with an engine known as the 'Twincharger'. This 1.4 litre petrol engine combines turbo- and supercharging, to make a small but powerful engine with low fuel consumption.[20] The Jetta available in the Americas and the Middle East is powered by a 2.5-litre 5-cylinder 20-valve engine in most trims. This engine shares its cylinder head design with the V10 engine found in the Lamborghini Gallardo and Audi R8.[21]

When the Mark 5 Jetta was introduced, the Turbocharged Direct Injection (TDI) diesel engine was not offered in five U.S. States due to the tight emission standards promulgated by the California Air Resources Board. In addition to California, four other states adopted the more stringent California standards. Where it was available, it fell into the least-restrictive emission category. That category was removed in 2007, prompting the diesel Jetta to be unavailable for more than a year until the introduction of a new common rail diesel engine, which appeared in August 2008. The introduction was delayed for approximately six months due to technical issues with the new emissions control system.[22] The TDI Clean Diesel engine is rated 103 kilowatts (138 hp; 140 PS), and uses advanced features such as a diesel particulate filter and NOx-storage catalyst (vs. AdBlue) to reduce NOx in order to qualify as a Tier II Bin 5 vehicle (equivalent to California's LEV II rating), and thereby allowing it to be sold in all 50 U.S. states. AdBlue (urea injection fluid) is not required, further reducing maintenance requirements. In 2015 it was found that this engine's emissions had been falsified.

In the U.S., in August 2010, it was reported that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) was investigating 37,889 2009 Jetta TDI's regarding a stalling problem. There were complaints to the agency about the Jettas going into "limp-home" mode and then stalling almost immediately while being driven. Motor Trend reported that there were also complaints about premature failures of its high-pressure fuel pump.[23]


In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crash testing the Jetta received an overall "Good" rating in both front offset and side impact tests. In the side impact test the Jetta received "Good" marks in all nine measured categories.[24][25] In 2005, the Institute noted that the side impact protection performance was the best they had ever rated.[26] In 2006, the car received a "Top Safety Pick" award from the Institute.[27] The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the fifth generation Jetta 4/5 stars for both driver and passenger protection in a frontal impact, while the car received 5/5 stars stars in a side impact crash test.[28] To tout the safety of the car, a series of television commercials with the tag line "Safe happens" showed the car being involved in a collision whilst afterward the occupants are shown to have emerged unscathed.

The VW Jetta received the maximum 5 stars in the China NCAP crash tests.[29]

Testing and review[edit]

Volkswagen Jetta GLI Fahrenheit (US)

The fifth generation received generally positive reviews with some reviewers complaining the car lost some of its character with the redesign.[30] Most reviewers found the ride to be firm and well controlled but not always as forgiving as the previous generation. Handling was a strong point, with quick and precise steering and minimal body roll due to the MacPherson Strut suspension up front. Fit and finish received excellent marks, with reviewers noting the car felt very upscale.[31] The front seats were firm but well liked, and the rear seat was roomy, in contrast to the cramped quarters in the fourth generation. Controls and displays were decent, but fell apart and started shorting out with age.[32] Reviewers were particularly impressed with the "Sportline" models (known as the GLI in North America). Equipped with sport seats, a firmer suspension lowered by 15 mm (0.59 in), and low profile tyres, critics praised the excellent handling that was an improvement over the already good performance on the standard model.[33] Additionally, the 2.0 Turbo FSI engine also won commendation for its high power figures, smooth operation, and low fuel consumption.[34] Along with its hatchback brethren, the fifth generation ranks among the top cars on the market in independent reviews of resale value.[35]

Although improved over the fourth generation, the Mark 5 still took over 42 hours to assemble at the factory in Mexico.[36] Part of this disparity is blamed on the switch to the more complex independent rear suspension. Volkswagen has publicly stated its discontent over the excessive assembly time, and pledged to streamline manufacturing in the next generation of A platform cars.[37] In the interim, Volkswagen de México is making a concerted effort to further increase productivity at the plant by consulting outside experts from Toyota and other Japanese companies.[7] By implementing many lean manufacturing principles and techniques, a goal has been set to increase productivity levels at the factory by 30% or more in the coming years.

2010 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Sportwagen (US)
2009 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen

Volkswagen debuted a station wagon variant of the Golf at the 2007 New York International Auto Show,[38] with a cargo volume of 930 litres (33 cu ft) and 1,894 litres (66.9 cu ft) (rear seats up/down) and an optional 1.18 square metres (12.7 sq ft) panoramic sunroof.

VW marketed the station wagon as the Jetta SportWagen in the United States, Bora Sportwagen in Mexico, Golf Break and later Golf SW in France, Jetta Variant in Brazil, Vento Variant in Argentina, Jetta Wagon in Canada (2009 only), Golf Wagon in Canada (2010 onwards), Golf Estate in the United Kingdom and Golf Variant in the German domestic and most other markets.

In 2010, the Sportwagen received a minor interior and exterior facelift, and remained based on the fifth-generation Golf, with front end styling mirroring the sixth-generation Golf.

2010 Jetta TDI Cup "Street" edition[edit]

This version commemorated the 2008+ Jetta TDI Cup Race series, the last year of the Mk V, and was based on the TDI Clean Diesel sedan. The same 104 kW (139 hp; 141 PS) and 240 lb⋅ft (325 N⋅m) of torque diesel motor was supplied, and the package included GLI brakes, suspension, and sway bars. Additional upgrades from the base TDI were "TDI Cup Edition" body side stickers, 18 inch wheels with Pirelli P-Zero or Yokohama ADVAN 225/40R18 sport tires, aluminum pedals, leather-wrapped steering wheel, chrome door linings, aerodynamic body kit (front, side & rear), an Interlagos cloth interior with heated sport seats, short shifter, faux carbon fiber inlays (as opposed to metallic), and a black interior (headliner/doorcards/dash).

It could be purchased with either a 6-speed Manual or DSG transmission (DSG includes paddle shifters), and a "Thunderbunny" body kit was optional (and available from VW only on the Cup edition).

The vehicle was unveiled in the 2008 SEMA Show. The production version went on sale in January 2010 with a base MSRP of US$24,990 (not including destination fee or options).[39]

Per VW North America, worldwide only 1,501 Jetta TDI Cup Editions were produced. 588 were manufactured with a manual transmission and 913 were built with DSG transmissions.

Top 5 Problems Volkswagen Jetta Sedan 5th Generation 2006-10

MkVI, Mark 4, A4, Mk6, NMS….ALH, BEW, BHW, CJAA – The many VW engine and model codes can be confusing.  In this article we’ll help you sort through it and determine which model you have.

You’ll hear VWs referred to by chassis (A1, A3, B4, etc.). This code refers to both the size of the platform, with A being the smallest in the US, B the next size, and there are also larger platforms (like the Phaeton) that are not TDIs here. The number refers to the generation of the car, 1 being first generation, 2 second, and so on. So an A1 is the smallest platform sold in the US and the first generation. This was the 1975-1984 Rabbit.

VW has sold a lot of platforms and generations here, but only a few with TDIs. Here’s a guide to the platforms and engines in VW TDIs in North America. There are two basic engine types, rotary pump and PD (Pumpe Deuse). The engine codes for each platform are also listed below.

VW A3 Platform



  • Jetta TDI in model years 1997, 1998, and first half of 1999.

These are all rotary pump cars, mostly with engine code AHU. Some early A3s (1997 only) have a very similar engine with the code 1Z. With the exception of some internal engine parts the AHU and1Z engine components are interchangeable. All have manual transmissions.

A4 Platform – Mk4 Jetta, Golf, New Beetle



  • Jetta sedan TDI from model year 1999.5 through the first half of 2005
  • New Beetle from 1998 to 2006
  • Jetta Wagon TDI from 2002 to 2005 (2006 in Canada)
  • Golf TDI from 1999.5 through 2006.

All A4 models switched to Pumpe Deuse (PD) engines from model year 2004 on.

Engine Codes:

  • 1999.5-2003: Rotary engine code ALH
    2004-2005 Jetta, 2004-2006 Golf and New Beetle, Pumpe Deuse engine code BEW.

A5 Platform – Mk5 Jetta


Models & Engines:

  • Jetta Sedan from 2005.5 – 2006, Engine Code BRM (1.9L “Pumpe-Deuse”)
  • Jetta Sedan 2009-2010, Engine Code CBEA or CJAA (2.0L common rail)
  • Sportwagen 2009-2010, Engine Code CBEA or CJAA (2.0L common rail)

The A5 was produced in 2005 and 2006, had a special including special ‘diesel’ edition Jetta in late 2006. Some of these cars are actually 2007 model year cars sold as 2006s. The 2005.5 and 2006 cars all have Pumpe Deuse engines with code BRM. There were no TDIs sold in the US in model years 2007 or 2008. The 2009 “Clean Diesel” is a Common Rail engine with code CBEA or CJAA.

VW Mk6 Golf & Sportwagen


The MkVI Golf was introduced in 2010 though it was largely a refreshed A5 platform Jetta and Rabbit.  It is instantly recognizable by its new front-end and headlights design.  This front end is shared by the 2010 and up Sportwagen as well, although it wasn’t until 2011 that the Sportwagen moved its platform up a generation.


  • 2010+ Golf TDI, Engine Code CJAA (2.0L, “clean diesel” common-rail TDI)
  • 2011-2014 Sportwagen TDI, Engine Code CJAA (also referred to as the Jetta Sportwagen)

VW Mk6 Jetta


In 2011 VW introduced an all-new Jetta on a modified A5 platform.  One highlight of the 2011+ Jetta was the reintroduction of a single rear-beam suspension rather than the independent rear suspension on the original A5 Jetta.  Later on in 2013 VW upgraded the rear back to IRS.

In 2015 the Mk6 Jetta received a facelift and an engine upgrade.

The 2011 Jetta TDI was available with the same 2.0L common-rail, “clean diesel” TDI (engine code CJAA) as the MkVI Golf.


  • 2011-2014 Jetta TDI, Engine Code CJAA
  • 2015+ Jetta TDI, Engine Code CVCA

MQB Platform – Mk7 Golf & Golf Wagon


The 2015 Golf and Wagon were the first models to be introduced that used the new VW “MQB” platform.  Read more about the MQB Platform.  The Mk7 Golf is lighter and stronger than the outgoing Mk6 and also came with the new EA288 series engine that was more powerful, more efficient and used AdBlue Diesel Exhaust Fluid.

As of the Mk7 generation the wagon version was no longer a “Jetta” or “Sportwagen” but simply the “Golf Wagon”.
