2005 Volkswagen Golf GLS TDI 4dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


Coming from England to US, I have driven many cars. The GOLF TDI is a popular car in a market where a very large percentage are diesel due to the price of gas. The golf is very well built, solid and offers many air bags. The handling and styling of the car is excellent - golf owners appreciate their reliable, frugal workhorse and once bitten rarely stop becoming VW owners. The quality of the build is excellent and as is the Monsoon sound system. My primary reason for buying was to get a safe, well-built, reliable, quality car which offered good gas mileage. I get around 40 mpg which is excellent - my only regret is not looking at a passat TDI - rear legroom space is limited.

Best Features

My favorite features are the excellent 1.9TDI engine which offers plenty of power and ecomony. The monsoon sound system is excellent

Worst Features

I bought the car when my daugher was a small baby. Now size is limited (compared to my Excursion!!), I should have considered the Passat TDI or Jetta Wagon.
