2004 Volkswagen Golf GLS TDI 4dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


Most of the utility of a mini-SUV (the part you'll utilize anyway). Three times cheaper gas bill (I've calculated it). Really intelligent standard features and options. Great looks. More fun to drive than you'd ever expect - as long as you opt for standard trans. (The automatic kills the fun!) Superior crash test results and safety features. Sweet little engine that'll make you question why all cars don't have a turbodiesel option, and never again want to buy one that doesn't.

Best Features

Did I mention 43 MPG? (calculated in mixed driving) Did I mention diesel costs less than that stuff you put in your lawnmower? Great looks inside and out. Great ergonomic design. Peppy acceleration. YES, THIS ECONO-CAR HAS A PERSONALITY!

Worst Features

A bit wider stance to offer more interior room would be nice (coming in 2006 from what I hear). Suede cloth seats attract lent better than a lent- roller. Can VW do anything about lower sulfur content in U.S. diesel brands? Probably just need to sell more TDIs.
