2002 Volkswagen Golf GL TDI 2dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)
Review
I purchased my 2000 Golf GL TDI 5 speed new in March, 2000. The odometer now shows 67k+ miles, 2/3 at 65+ mph. The only service has been routine oil changes every 10k, using fully synthetic oil. No problems of any sort, and I still average 50 mpg. This car does everything well; very good acceleration and handling, excellent cargo capacity, a plethora of safety features. The overall performance is so good, when I first test drove a TDI, I asked the salesman if he was sure it was a diesel! Farfignugen works!
Favorite Features
Surprising acceleration and handling; incredible fuel economy; excellent ergonomics and safety features; well thought out interior and appointments; large and fully usable cargo area.
Suggested Improvements
Offer the 6 speed manual and the European diesel engines (more power, still great economy); remove the cup holders from the dash.
