I'm disappointed to be only getting 39 in my 1.6 TD and to have been
surpassed by 2000 miles on the odometer. If I was just a little more
confident, I'd drive it out on my upcoming trip from TX to NC and catch
back up to you, but I know too many things that are wrong with the old
girl. If the rent car breaks down, I call up the company, act real
indignant on the phone, and they send around another car. If the old
Jetta breaks down a thousand miles away as I have reason to expect it
might, I cry on the phone to someone, anyone, and pull the liscence tags
and the VIN, drop a match and stick out my thumb.
