2000 Volkswagen Golf GLS TDi 4dr Hatchback


I was drawn to the TDI by its sleek
design, great handling, and its
incredible fuel efficiency (50 miles a
gallon means that I go to a gas station
a little more than once a month). What I
did not expect, after I had owned
several Golfs prior to this one, were
the major problems with reliability.
Nearly from day one, things started to
break: sunroof, door locks, glow plugs,
electronic command
module, my ignition key was not
recognized and the car disabled itself.
Now, the turn-lights aren't working and
the "check-engine" light is on again. I
should have been more suspicious of the
2-yr warranty. All that in 2.5 years
plus really lousy service is more than I
can handle.

Best Features

I still like the looks and the handling of the car. Gas mileage is hard to beat, too.

Worst Features

Get the reliability problems under control!
