2012 Volkswagen Golf 2.0L TDI 4dr Hatchback w/Tech Package (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)


My top 2 criteria for buying this car:
1. fuel economy,
2. performance.
I average around 39 miles / gallon with mostly highway driving. As far as performance, it feels more like a sports car. In fact, it has a sport suspension. Acceleration is quick, whether looking to spontaneously pass on the highway or off the line from a stop. It is a solidly built quality vehicle.
As of now, I have no regrets for spending the money to purchase this vehicle. It is truly a joy to drive.

Best Features

Fuel efficiency; Peformance; Cargo space; Dynaudio Sound System; LED Running Lights; Diesel reliability;

Worst Features

The head rest seems to be slightly forward and feels just a bit uncomfortable. As a result, I tend to recline the seat back a little more than usual. Not lots of cargo space. Under the center console cover between driver and passenger, there a 2 very small "slots" for holding items. Also, there is a small "pop up" compartment just under the Dynaudio System console.
