2000 Volkswagen Golf GLS TDi 4dr Hatchback


I've owned this car for 7 years. It is, on the whole, a very good car that suffered from periods of erratic reliability. The pluses are that it gets superb mileage. 50 mpg is not a joke, and 45-50 in stop and go commuting traffic around the metro area is really stellar. The car has been very comfortable. The car is also very practical as a hauler. Cargo capacity is great. Supremely reliable diesel engine. The minuses. Questionable reliability in some areas -- the power windows, steering rack (twice!) and the car frequently illuminates the warning lights for extremely minor problems (quite an annoyance). A great commuter car with a few blemishes.

Best Features

Diesel fuel economy. Bulletproof engine. Comfortable ride and good utility.

Worst Features

More power (90hp was below average in 2000, and the new [2008] ones are supposed to have 140 or so). Better quality control or reliability of ancillary parts.
