3300 mile Update
By FCWarrior on


2010 Volkswagen Golf TDI 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)


I have the cloth standard seat which are very comfortable but several threads are ripping already after only 3300 miles. Incredible. Don't know how this compares to other vehicles but it's a really bad start. I am only 190 lbs and am careful on how I get in and out since I saw this as a potential trouble spot early on. I have yet to take it to the Dealer for the 90 day checkup. If I go even very slowly over neighborhood speed bumps there is a loud metal-on-metal bang as the suspension tops out. The sunroof switch is very counter-intuitive with no obvious detent for 'closed'. So far I get 55 mpg @ 45 mph 43 mpg @55 mph

Best Features

Very comfortable seats but very questionable quality since the driver's seat is already showing broken threads at 3300 miles. Very good touch screen sound system.

Worst Features

Fix the appalling low throttle surge when cold and the horrendous delay in full throttle take-offs. Better quality seat, put a detent in the sunroof switch
