I've had my TDI Wagon since May. I
previously had a 2001.5 1.8T 5 speed.
Although I loved the efficiency
of the engine of my old car,the low end
torque of the 1.8T was simply not
strong enough to handle extreme
driveways and hills in and around
Atlanta. The diesel is a completely
different story altogether. It comes
off of the line quickly...so much so
that the tires will squeal if punched
too quickly.... The hills and steep
driveways are no longer a problem from
standing stops. Atl to DC on one tank
of fuel. I love it.
Engine, fuel mileage handling are the
best. Safety features & solid build
quality are tops
The monsoon radio in my old wagon was
better. I wish it came with the xenon
headlamps. The rear wiper should have a
variable delay like the front wipers.
Generally, I love the car. I'll always
have a VW
