Best small car on the market.

2004 Volkswagen Golf GLS TDI 4dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


Most of the utility of a mini-SUV (the
part you'll utilize anyway). Three
times cheaper gas bill (I've calculated
it). Really intelligent standard
features and options. Great looks.
More fun to drive than you'd ever
expect - as long as you opt for
standard trans. (The automatic kills
the fun!) Superior crash test results
and safety features. Sweet little
engine that'll make you question why
all cars don't have a turbodiesel
option, and never again want to buy one
that doesn't.

Best Features

Did I mention 43 MPG? (calculated in mixed driving) Did I mention diesel costs less than that stuff you put in your lawnmower? Great looks inside and out. Great ergonomic design. Peppy acceleration. YES, THIS ECONO-CAR HAS A PERSONALITY!

Worst Features

A bit wider stance to offer more interior room would be nice (coming in 2006 from what I hear). Suede cloth seats attract lent better than a lent- roller. Can VW do anything about lower sulfur content in U.S. diesel brands? Probably just need to sell more TDIs.
