2003 Volkswagen Golf GLS TDI 4dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)

Review

This is the 3rd Diesel in our family (also had a Rabbit and currently an 18- year old Jetta that still runs fine). I picked up my TDI the other day and so far have been very impressed. It doesn't have the same zoom as my Subie, but since it's mostly for city traffic, it's perfect. It may be the best commuter/city driving car ever--maybe that's why it's so popular in Europe. BTW, they seem to have revised the cupholder placement on the later 2003's, or maybe it's because mine has Monsoon. They're down between the seats, and can even hold Big Gulps.

Favorite Features

Dashboard lighting, drive to Chicago and back and Chicago and back...on one tank, moonroof, heated seats

Suggested Improvements

More power.
