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


Great car so far. I fill the tank up
maybe twice a month. Interior is lovely.
A reviewer was right when he talked
about "democratized luxury." This is a
nicely appointed, fully featured car for
well under 20k. Total cost to own/cost
per mile is lower than any of the
"similar vehicles" Edmunds offers for

Best Features

Great mileage, great headlights, excellent stereo (optional Monsoon), handling is solid, braking is confidence inspiring, airbags everywhere (side curtain, side, dual front) ABS standard, very slick remote keyless entry/switchblade key fob

Worst Features

Heated seats should be standard on TDIs; they are so thermally effecient it takes several minutes to begin to warm up on cold mornings.
