This car is a great buy. the interior is nicely finished, with very comfortable seats. The styling is great, and the car performs well. The ride is smooth at all speeds, and the engine has plenty of power. Handling is typical VW; you want to push this car a little bit. The MPG is consistently at or above 42, even with a mix of highway & city.
My very first new car was a '71 Super Beetle. I loved that car and have thought about it ever since. I got sidetracked and moved away from VW for reasons unrelated to VW. Now I'm back in the fold and its love all over again. Being a highway traveller, I sprung for the diesel Golf. I have to say, I think I am now a "diesel man." I cannot imagine owning a gasoline car again. I live in a moderately temperate area, so cold-starts are not a major concern. I just cannot believe how effortlessly the thing handles highways speeds, hills and all. The car is quick, responsive and sure-footed as I anticipated. The stability control and just plain solid engineering of the suspension system have already saved my life, I believe, only after 6 weeks of owning the car. At about 70mph, I had to dodge a trailer truck coming over on me and then another car zinging around from the far side of the truck. I was running slaloms for a few seconds and the car felt like it was glued to the road. It went only where I wanted it to go and did so with an instant touch. I'm in love, that's really all I can say about my diesel Golf.
First and foremost it gets great mileage and that is why I bought it. VW has been making these little diesel engines for a long time and if you maintain them they will treat you right for many years. Seats are comfortable, technology inside is good, and the six speed manual is fun to drive.
