We have driven our Golf 21000 miles. We bought it in March of 2004. Our average mileage is 37 to 38 miles a gallon. On the highway we get in the low forties. The car is fun to drive. It handles beautifully on the interstate or on back roads. The engine has plenty of power. When we want at pass, we pass. We liked the seats.They have good back support. We bought the Golf because it was a diesel and because it has a hatchback. Our sixty pound dog rides there when we travel. We think we bought the right car for our purposes.
The car is fun to drive. It is responsive and it holds the road.
The odometer is difficult to read in daylight. I suggest a better location with larger numbers. The clock is easy to read. The heater and airconditioner controls are difficult to use. They should be relocated.
