2003 Volkswagen Golf GL TDI 2dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


Review

This car has been "Top Notch". I am
6' and 275lbs and bought this car
because of comfort. I have logged 21K
mostly long trips and have been very
pleased with the ride and comfort
levels. Plus the TDI has returned an
avg fuel economy of 47.5 mpg. Better
than I ever expected. Make sure you
buy the 5 speed. The auto is a little
sluggish, but the manual offers plenty
of giddy-up on the highway.


Best Features

Smooth 5 speed, great fuel economy, you can load more than you think in a hatchback


Worst Features

Car should come standard with a center armrest. New models will offer a few more hp.

2003 Volkswagen Golf GL 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This is my first VW and I love it! Test-
drive it and you will buy it. If you
are interested in Golf, go and get a GL
instead of GLS because the sunroof
actually cut off the interior height
above your head. It was amazing I got a
110 speeding ticket when I was trying
to test the performance of my new car.
It can run stably around 80-90.


Best Features

3-in-one radio and 8 speakers. Red and blue color combination of the illuminations. Big cargo capacity for a small car.


Worst Features

There are always some electronic problems coming out and you better prepare for that. But the service I got from my dealer is good.

2003 Volkswagen Golf GL 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is a great car. This is my third
VW and I just love driving it. It's
very different from my previous
Civic. The Golf handles better, takes
corners faster, less body lean, feels
more solid than the flimsy Honda
(although it's a great car too.) It's
no BMW, but it also doesn't costs like
a BMW. The hatchback is just a
bonus. When I flip down the
backseats, the trunk space is huge,
definitely a lot bigger than the trunk
of a regular sedan.


Best Features

handles great, fun to drive, side curtain airbags.


Worst Features

I wish the gas mileage would be better. I used to get 32+mpg with my Civic, with the Golf, I only get 27mpg.

Review

I owne a Golf GL 1994, i got it in 1996
with only 45,000km on it, for a good
price. Ever since then i love the car
its been great driving it. Good
performance, fast good on gas, a nice
looking car in general. Did some mods.
on it but overall to be honest i would
be lying to you if i didnt said this
car is the best car on the market today.


Best Features

Hatchback, tint windows, lowered, Alpine system 12" type R 400w/each with an Alpine amp 1000w. Alpine 3473 cdR


Worst Features

More hours power would be good but, i can live without that.
