TDI-best kept secret of VW!
By HT on
Vehicle2003 Volkswagen Golf GL TDI 4dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)
ReviewNo wonder the Europeans are all
excited about Turbo Direct Injection
(TDI)diesels. This is the only car in
US w/this technology. Drove a Merc
diesel in 80s-bad experience-slow,
noisy. This Golf TDI is a revelation.
Enough power for regular driving, even
enough acceleration and handling for
fun-yet gets 50 mpg and is quiet as a
gasoline car. This is the anti-SUV!
Best FeaturesTDI engine. Solid body structure and comfortable ride over bad surfaces. Tight handling if you can get over the body lean. Safety features. Interior detail touches. Fun to drive at 50 mpg!
Worst FeaturesTrivial but cupholders are terrible. Next generation Golf should keep ride comfort quality but have less body lean on the corners.
