Sadly, it was a lemon
By Fred P. on

Vehicle

2010 Volkswagen Golf TDI 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)

Review

Bought car and at 900 miles it went into "limp mode" where the turbo would not work. Took car to Dealer who replaced MAF sensor despite there were no fault codes at all. At 1200 miles it did it again. Dealership put us in a rental for 3 months as they waited for VW of America to release a computer update that needed EPA approval before applying. After 3 months, we worked with dealership to trade in the Golf TDI for a 2010 Jetta TDI.

Favorite Features

Sporty look and how you use the VW emblem on the hatch to open the hatch.

Suggested Improvements

- VW needs to conduct better field testing of this line of clean desiel vehicles. - The heater control labels are very small and hard to read what setting they are on.
