Question about 5th Gen Jetta (05-07)

I currently drive a car that is around 120HP, it is fine I don't mind that it is slow (it actually helps when it comes to speeding!! LOL), but I hear the 1.9TDI is only 100 horsepower!! That sounds very low, I read that the top speed (which means you can't push it that hard LOL) is 116MPH. Now that is rather low. Does anyone have the newer Jettas in a 1.9TDI? If so, what is your take on the speed and when you hit the gas and stuff.
Also, Stock is the 2.5, it's a little more expensive (only about 2K which raises only 40 dollars a month more or less), is it worth it to get that car, at 150HP?
What about the 2.0 verison, with I believe it's 115HP, is it any good?
I am in love with these Jettas and I want one bad, I don't want a car that is FAST to the point I will be doing 60 in a 30 and get tickets! I just want to feel the power.
Would 100HP be too little??
Is it worth getting the 2.5???
How does the car handle?

I had a 92 Jetta GL with 1.8L, 5 speed, think 90 or 100 HP. I did not feel the power until RPM hit 3K, but still fun to drive. You really have to use right RPM and 5 speed gears which is the fun afterall.

I think you'll be OK.

First off, if you want a Jetta TDI, forget the word "gas". Think fuel or diesel !!

I have an early 06 model with just turned 10k miles. First mpg test ... I bought it with 8k on it ... a couple of weeks ago gave me 47.6 mpg. I live in the flat part of the country ... as in 'high desert' ... so my test was accurate as far as I am concerned. Only one or 2 hills between here and the big city.

Regarding speed, on my way back from Arizona, nb out of Las Vegas, decided to open it up. Tromped on the go-pedal and hit 120 pretty darn quick. It was pretty close to the 4k redline of the tach, so did not push it further ... but did maintain that for about 5 miles. Still had power available but was on a slight uphill grade of about 1-2% which was cutting into the acceleration aspect a bit.

Moral ... it ain't a Yugo ..........
