The Golf TDI is the car of my dreams, since I first saw the Rabbit diesel in 1976. It is very comfortable, handles excellently, and gives great fuel economy (48 mpg average). I drive 152 miles a day to work on a variety of roads and it never fails to satisfy. VW quality is evident in every part of the car. I wish I would have purchased one earlier. I have driven this car 22,000 miles in nine months.
Fuel economy is number one. There is plenty of power for driving in town or passing on the highway. It has never run out steam for me.
I would have liked better quality materials on the seats; perhaps I should have purchased leather.
