I have driven a TDI for 4 years now
and still enjoy driving it. I live in
Colorado so snow tires are neccesary
in the winter but she is still fun to
drive 4 years later. It could use a
few more horses but for 50mpg it is
hard to beat. Make sure you get the
additive for the winter because fuel
line freeze up will happen with the
~50mpg is hard to pass up.
Suspension could be tuned tighter. If
it does break then you will be
visiting a dealer because of the
onboard computer system. Repairs are
not cheap too.
