67000+ and counting

Vehicle2002 Volkswagen Golf GL TDI 2dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)
ReviewI 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!
Best FeaturesSurprising acceleration and handling; incredible fuel economy; excellent ergonomics and safety features; well thought out interior and appointments; large and fully usable cargo area.
Worst FeaturesOffer the 6 speed manual and the European diesel engines (more power, still great economy); remove the cup holders from the dash.
