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


I don't know if consumer reports and
all the people complaining of problems
are cry'n wolf...??? My car has had
multiple problems since day one! I am
pretty sure VW-DE is at fault, whether
the car comes from Germany or South
America. My trani and motor came from
Germany and both have had serious
problems. My trani was replaced (main
bearing and 5th gear syncron shot), my
fuel injection pump was replaced, and
not to mention all the other lil
things that were replaced. Two thumbs
down for the Golf. Hope the R32 and
the MKV will be better. Message for
the German's: "stop sending us crap,
were catch'n on to you!"

Best Features

Snappy Lil bugger! For a 45Mpg car...

Worst Features

Cut the crap with the roll down knob for seat reclining action. What is with that, it's 2003, not 1930. Stonger frame and better suspension. Ohh, nicer exterior style. That very old school Euro style isn't working here in the states!
