3rd Diesel/7th VW
By TDIBabs on


2003 Volkswagen Golf GLS TDI 4dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


This is the 3rd Diesel in our family
(also had a Rabbit and currently an 18-
year old Jetta that still runs fine).
I picked up my TDI the other day and so
far have been very impressed. It
doesn't have the same zoom as my Subie,
but since it's mostly for city traffic,
it's perfect. It may be the best
commuter/city driving car ever--maybe
that's why it's so popular in Europe.
BTW, they seem to have revised the
cupholder placement on the later
2003's, or maybe it's because mine has
Monsoon. They're down between the
seats, and can even hold Big Gulps.

Best Features

Dashboard lighting, drive to Chicago and back and Chicago and back...on one tank, moonroof, heated seats

Worst Features

More power.
