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

Review

Bought this car used with 80K miles on it and I was amazed at how smooth the engine and clean it was (inside, outside, and engine bay). These TDI's are easier upgradable and I've added about 30HP and 100 ft-lbs of torque for under $500. My performance has greatly improved and my fuel economy is still 48 MPG mixed city/hwy. Most importantly, this car is amazingly reliable and is an easy car to maintain yourself. I love this car

Favorite Features

Fuel economy, easily upgradable, tight design tolerances, easy to parallel- park, efficient use of space (interior/trunk), simplicity of diesel operation, low maintenance, incredible headlight output, dash gauges are bright, beautiful, and do not diminish the headlamp output.

Suggested Improvements

Suspension goes soft after 30K miles, front suspension geometry is not optiminal, front skid plate should be stronger, front cup holders should be revised, 5th gear ratio should be taller to improve mileage on the top end, and side-view mirrors should be assymetrical to eliminate blind spots
