2010 Volkswagen Golf TDI 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6M)


I traded in a '09 Jetta tdi, and '07 Rabbit and bought this '10 Golf tdi and Eos. We have a '09 Jetta tdi Sportwagon. The Golf is very quiet and unbelievable on economy. We have 3500 miles on it and it's best is 54mpg, with an overall average of 48.5mpg, and this is winter here in Wisconsin. Once fully broken-in during the summer we could see close to 60mpg. This is much better than the '09 Sportwagon which is getting at best in the mid 40s, but that is still not fully broken-in. The Golf has plenty of power and great handling for a front wheel drive car.

Best Features

Favorite features are the fuel economy, power, comfort, quiet ride and looks. The standard sports suspension is a big plus. The gearing is really tall, (200rpms lower)taller than the '09 Jetta. The instrumentation on the steering wheel is a plus, too. Love the bi-xenon lights, they are super bright.

Worst Features

Making more of them available, I had "ordered" a shark blue one in mid September, but got the first one the dealer was sent. It is black, but got it $500 below MSRP, at a time when other dealers were asking well over MSRP.
