2010 Volkswagen Golf TDI 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)
Review
Sold 04 Jetta TDI for this. Fun to drive by keeping acceleration in peak torque range around 2500 rpm. Xenon headlights are well worth the $750 upgrade price. Fog lamps automatically light up when turning to assist headlights in sharp turns. EGR valve went out at 750 miles; part should have lasted till 100k easily. One annoying thing is occasional acceleration lag; give a little throttle to move car up some, then maybe 3/4 throttle to jump in traffic and car "stumbles" before turbo spins up enough to boost. Happens not often but enough to be annoying. Common on 3 TDIs I've owned. Hair raising in busy cross traffic. Dunno how VW has not had a class action lawsuit. Fun car nevertheless.
Favorite Features
- Xenon headlights option - Heated Seats option - Fog lamps during turns - Mileage + sporty handling - Standard touch screen stereo (not the Dynaudio option) sounds awesome. - Fit and finish - Quietest TDI ever
Suggested Improvements
- Control symbols for heater are hard to read from driver or passenger seat especially at night. - Occasional acceleration lag from turbo needs resolved. - Sunroof needs auto close feature for when car is turned off with an optional setting to leave it in current position. My 05 Ram has this heh.
