Forget the 2.0L motor

Vehicle

2002 Volkswagen Golf GL TDI 4dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)

Review

The TDI motor is well worth the extra $1000 over the 2.0L motor. It has so much low-end torque, it makes it extremely driveable and fun. It has some features you cannot get for this price, such as Heated mirrors & Heated seats. The plastics has a nice soft touch feel to it, very pleasing to touch. Fuel economy? 54 mpg on the highway. It stretches to fuel bill well.

Favorite Features

1. 54 mpg highway (about 620 miles before the low fuel light is on) 2. Heated Seats 3. Excellent stereo (even if it's not a monsoon)

Suggested Improvements

1. Dash ergonomics: It's not convenient like Toyota. 2. Better body roll control, kills some of the confidence in an otherwise, good all-around suspension.
