Ultimate Commuter Car
By Long Dist Commuter on


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


I drive 180 miles every day on my
commute---this is absolutely the best
car to have. It is much more refined,
has better materials, and feels more
substantial than the Hybrid cars, and
is cheaper in sticker price and fuel
(at least here in California, diesel is
10/15% cheaper than gas). Tons of room
for passengers and groceries, too.

Best Features

50 mpg on the highway at 70 mph!!! Gobs of low-end torque!!!

Worst Features

Cup holders are in the exact wrong place. Suspension is not sporty, but is very compliant (you can always find a used GTI suspension for sale....)
