A great car - don't expect performance
By hamfit on
Vehicle2002 Volkswagen Golf GL TDI 4dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)
ReviewThe Golf is a really super car. My Tdi
is my third VW in about 10 years and my
second MkIV Golf, my first being a turbo
GTI. The tdi is an excellent engine,
with great torque, smooth performance
and a great sound. Expect longer
warm-up times (get heated seats) and
rough running when cold. Understand
that diesel engines are different
creatures than gas engines; to get the
reliability and durability diesels are
known for, be ready to religiously
replace filters, buy good diesel, use
additives and be a hands-on driver. The
diesels are by no means 'drive and
forget,' similar to Jap cars. tdiclub.com!
Best FeaturesSolid but spotty construction; technically advanced and fun-to-drive engine; logical interior; heated seats, mirrors and washer nozzels; easy to get more power.
Worst FeaturesBetter suspension components, relocate cupholders, more interior options, more power.
