Awesome diesel (TDI)

2002 Volkswagen Golf GL TDI 2dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


Great driving car. Smooth over bumps,
good bit of body lean in turns but feels
very sure footed. Torque makes you feel
like you're driving a much more powerful
car. Highway ride is a nice, tracks
straight (autobahn heritage), eats up
twisty roads, steering feels great.
We traded in a 6mo. old Civic. Civic was
roomier, better basic transport. But for
a fun refined driving machine, this is it!

Best Features

Fun, power, handling, highway tracking, stereo (best stock I've heard), mileage (53mpg on 1st tank), lots of nice little features.

Worst Features

Less body lean, more powerful diesels like in europe (requires better fuel due in 2007), lower price
