I just bought a 2010 Golf TDI in the waning hours of 2009. In my limited time with the car is has exceeded my expectations. I bought this car primarily as a commuter vehicle for its high fuel economy. So far the mileage has been great and its performance has exceeded my expectations. Most other cars that get similar mileage are about as fun as an iPod to drive. The build quality is good and the car feels solid. The mark VI Golf looks like it will be a winner although time will be the judge of that.
Mileage is great. Handling is great. Turning circle is tight. Easy to park in the city.
The TDI only comes with the dark "Titan Black" interior. The stereo and cars computer is complex. I'm of generation Y and I had to do some reading of the manual to get up to speed
