Vehicle2001 Volkswagen Golf GLS TDI 4dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)
ReviewCompared to other compact cars (Civic,
Focus, Corolla) the Golf is much more
fun to drive, albeit for a premium
price. I'm 6'2" yet fit very well due
to highly adjustable seats, although
sitting in the rear seats behind me
would be impossible. Hatchback design
provides extra flexibility when cargo
hauling is required. Build-quality,
although Brazilian, is solid and paint
looks brand new after 2.5 years. Cloth
seats are hair magnets, though, and I
carry a lint roller in the car at all
times. I'd look at leather next time.
Best FeaturesTDI engine is this car's best feature. I have averaged 42mpg in mixed city/highway driving over the life of my car. Also like the six airbags, including head protection, and seat- belt pretensioners as standard equipment.
Worst FeaturesSeats need better lumbar support; perhaps adjustable? My back pays the price for a long road trip. Much maligned cup holders really are poorly designed.
