Great mileage and fun
By TomTDI on
Vehicle2001 Volkswagen Golf GLS TDI 4dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)
ReviewThe stock intecooler is a wee bit small and had saturated with heat, I live in Southern California, so I replaced it with an ABD aftermarket unit and have had great results. changed to a K & N filter and now the performance is better too. The automatic I have is good, but the stick version is really much more fun. Never has smoked and the other than the known recall issues the car has been very reliable overall but not as good as say a toyota. I will buy another one again, once they are available again in california in 2006.
Best FeaturesThe driveability is great, slow to get going but has the turbo boost to make it roll nice at highway speeds and beyond :).
Worst FeaturesMore base power for the TDI before (90 HP is adequate, but not too fun) turbo booost!
