Just bought a new 2010 Golf TDI, moving up from a 95 Golf III Sport, Fantastic. Fun to drive. Picked up on Wed and drove to Denver overnight for Thanksgiving. Handled perfectly all night. Took it to Loveland Pass, 11,099 ft, and to Breckenridge while there and it performed great, just ate up the mountains. Plenty of power to eat up the switchbacks and the altitude. Room for stuff in back i.e. groceries, bike w/wheels off, need a bike roof rack now, and luggage too. Love the 6 speed manual 80 mph at 2,200 rpm. A real solid car and really fun to drive too. Great, best VW I have owned. Best drive to Denve I have ever had. 1,500 miles in first week. Everything Bob in R.I says and more. later
Radio, and SAT features are really nice anything you want. Heated seats nice. Lights are great, lights up corners where turning, brights are great too. Cruise control is spot on and easy to operate. 6 Speed is great the only way to go. The std Radio was excellent too.
