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


I purchased my 2003 4dr.Golf TDI
automatic new, nearly a year ago.I now
have 19K miles on it. The TDI has
excellent power. We use it like an SUV.
Half the time we are hauling kids, and
the other half of the time we have the
rear seats down and have it loaded with
supplies. I'm 6'1",it has legroom to
spare. I drive this car hard, lots of
stop/go, on/off, when on the freeway
it's always 80 mph. Even with this
torture, I get a combined 31 mpg. The
value of many cars more than twice the

Best Features

Wonderful TDI performance! Great handling and road feedback. Sporty ride, yet not choppy. Does not feel like a small car, feels safe at all speeds, in all situations. Safety features, no less than eight air bags.

Worst Features

Poor location for dash cup holder. Recline feature on front seats need improving. The anti-chip coating that is on the rocker panels is not consistant, even having smudges and fingerprints in it. Would like a higher quality upholstery fabric on the seats. No buyers remorse here.
