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

Review

Power steering pump slaves and makes noise on low idle tight turns. Turning radius larger than expected. Mercedes and Volvo are bigger cars and can turn in less space. Rear wiper has plastic nozzle cap that can clog with road salt. Pry plastic cover off and pull out nozzle and clean. Cruise control solid, anti-pinch windows great, turning key in door lock to put all windows down when entering in summer superb turn key other way to put all windows up

Best Features

Combination of fuel efficiency and performance. Handling on curvy two lanes excellent - the 5 spd comes alive, finish appears excellent, folding side mirrors a plus, Oil filter removal that doesn't leak all over. Tel and tilt steering.

Worst Features

Higher powered headlights, rear spoiler should be mandatory, feeling of vagueness and visibility issues on tight manuevers, stronger air conditioning, better interior rear-view mirror, better door speakers, place clutch further to outside (too close to brake)
