A big let down
By gemancarfan76 on


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


After having the vehicle for 4 days I
noticed a fluid leaking from somewhere
in the engine compartment. I brought
my brand new TDI with 500 miles in to
be evaluated. After 4 days I was told
the transmission was destroyed by
metal shards in the casing. This was
over 2 weeks ago. Since then VW has
tried many attempts to put me in a
vehicle I don't want or did not ask
for. I traded in a BMW 3-series for
this VW. If I get my money back I
know which dealership I will be

Worst Features

Better Quality Control. Better materials. No parts made in third world countries. No salesman tactics after the sale has been made and the customer has recieved bad product.
