2001 Volkswagen Golf GLS TDI 4dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)

Review

Compared to other compact cars (Civic, Focus, Corolla) the Golf is much more fun to drive, albeit for a premium price. I'm 6'2" yet fit very well due to highly adjustable seats, although sitting in the rear seats behind me would be impossible. Hatchback design provides extra flexibility when cargo hauling is required. Build-quality, although Brazilian, is solid and paint looks brand new after 2.5 years. Cloth seats are hair magnets, though, and I carry a lint roller in the car at all times. I'd look at leather next time.

Best Features

TDI engine is this car's best feature. I have averaged 42mpg in mixed city/highway driving over the life of my car. Also like the six airbags, including head protection, and seat- belt pretensioners as standard equipment.

Worst Features

Seats need better lumbar support; perhaps adjustable? My back pays the price for a long road trip. Much maligned cup holders really are poorly designed.
