Yes.  I have a 99 Jetta TDI.  To answer your questions:

- good maintenance at a dealer is an oxymoron, but some are less incompetent
  than others.  There are even a couple of "Decent" ones out there

- good fuel is readily available

- winter starting is no problem.  The new cars have wonderful tricks engineered
  in to address every concern.

- the diesel list lives at www.vwfans.com and is run by yours
  truly :)
