2006 Volkswagen Golf Diesel GLS TDI 4dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

it is the ugliest car that I have ever had. It rides horribly, and it falls apart easily. I have never had a car this bad.


Best Features

I do not like anything at all about it.


Worst Features

Just throw it out and make a better car.

2006 Volkswagen Golf Diesel GLS TDI 4dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


Review

The Golf GLS TDI is a comfortabe car that gets 70 mpg at 60 mph on flat ground without the A/C on and 47 mpg at 75 mph with the A/C on. It will do extremely high speeds in 5th gear. It even runs great on 20% soy oil or any other kind of veggie oil. The only down side is you must cool down the turbocharger for up to five minutes.


Best Features

It handles quite well and stops very well. It accelerates from 2,000 rpm to 4,500 rpm very quickly when it been chipped.


Worst Features

I suggest a turbo cool down system.

2006 Volkswagen Golf Diesel GLS TDI 4dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


Review

This is a great little car. I'm glad that I bought it when I did. It seems they are hard to come by. I keep very careful record of my gas mileage and the overall average is approxiately 43 miles/gallon. It is a great little car that seems to be well built.


Best Features

I am really impressed with how big the rear cargo area is.


Worst Features

It needs more pin striping, I have to do that on my own.

2006 Volkswagen Golf Diesel GLS TDI 4dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

This is my second Golf, my fourth VW, and my first TDI. I love it so much for its good fuel economy. My wife traded her Bettle Convertible for the new Jetta TDI (VW #5).


Best Features

I love the good fuel economy and time proven engineering.


Worst Features

A solar powered fan in the vent system to cycle air through the car and reduce green house effects in summer heat would be neat.

Review

This car has been a dream. It gets 44 mpg combined and I don't drive slowly. It has more than enough power and great acceleration even with 4 passengers. I am waiting for the warranty to run out so I can convert the car to run on used cooking oil, no Prius can do that.
