2003 Volkswagen Golf GL TDI 2dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


I don't know if consumer reports and all the people complaining of problems are cry'n wolf...??? My car has had multiple problems since day one! I am pretty sure VW-DE is at fault, whether the car comes from Germany or South America. My trani and motor came from Germany and both have had serious problems. My trani was replaced (main bearing and 5th gear syncron shot), my fuel injection pump was replaced, and not to mention all the other lil things that were replaced. Two thumbs down for the Golf. Hope the R32 and the MKV will be better. Message for the German's: "stop sending us crap, were catch'n on to you!"

Best Features

Snappy Lil bugger! For a 45Mpg car...

Worst Features

Cut the crap with the roll down knob for seat reclining action. What is with that, it's 2003, not 1930. Stonger frame and better suspension. Ohh, nicer exterior style. That very old school Euro style isn't working here in the states!
