Best MPG for the Buck
By vegas on
2006 Volkswagen Golf GLS TDI 4dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5A)
The buzz surrounding hybrid gas / electric vehicles shamefully ignores the major maintenance expence of a replacement battery for the drive train. Forgetting about the maintenance cost of hybrid vehicles, if you take into account the fact that they usually get less than their stated gas mileage consumers should avoid them. Ask anyone if they get the stated MPG from a hybrid, they don't. Then ask a diesel driver, and they all will report at times getting much better than their vehicle's stated gas mileage. Don't forget that diesels cost $4-5K less up front than hybrids - that has gotta' still mean something. I forgot to mention that CO2 emissions are 25% less from diesel. Regular gasoline is more dirty than diesel fuel.
Favorite Features
The power, iPod compatibility, Audi / VW engine sound, great gas mileage, and low maintenance cost.
Suggested Improvements
Diesels all suffer in 0-10 minute cabin heating needs. Get some electric suplimental heating for instant cabin heat.
