HIGH fuel economy+LOW quality=Little fun

Vehicle2002 Volkswagen Golf GLS TDI 4dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)
ReviewI bought this car because of TDI engine and fuel economy. Worst car I have ever owned. 26K miles and more than 7 dealer visits! check engine lights, rattles and squeaks, moldy smell from AC after 1000 miles. Rough running engine-idle could not be fixed to date. Too much body roll. Buy this car only if you drive a lot and need the 45+ mpg fuel economy and don't care about crisp handling. Low interior build quality level (rattles and squeaks). If you live in cold climates, beware: heater doesn’t produce significant heat until about 5-10 miles of driving due to very efficient engine. Too small for child seats.
Best FeaturesTDI engine torque and fuel economy. Hatch-back functionality. ABS. Many air- bags. Safe handling in ice and snow.
Worst FeaturesQuality!!! Soft ride, location of cupholder, seat cover material, heating response time. trunk lock not part of central locking, requires extra un-locking
