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


As a first time Volkswagon and diesel
owner, this car gets two thumbs up.
Zero problems, all fun. Incredible
mileage(45-50mpg), surprising power,
quiet and no smoke. Everyone who has
ridden in it is completely surprised
when I announce it's a diesel. The car
handles well, smart interior design,
firm but comfortable seats, 6 air bags,
roomy for cargo and elegant hatch-back
styling. Exterior fit and finish is
supurb. Doors thunk, not clink. This
car is designed to a very
fine increment.

After a year, if asked what the
downside to owning a diesel is, I would
have to say 'NONE'. Total surprise.
This is a great car and I love it.

Best Features

Diesel Engine. Responsive, torquey, quiet, smokeless, economical. Total surprise and well kept secret.

Worst Features

Move cupholders. More small item storage space.
