Golf is Top!
Gerissen - Southest USA06/08/2007
I am enjoying my Golf GL very much! It's handsome, and the fit and finish inside is very nice. I found many of the other hatchbacks to have poor and cheaply fabricated interiours, but not so for the Golf. It has clever adjustments and is user-friendly all over. The safety features are super, and the fuel efficiency is excellent also. It has all the torque I need, tight handling, and the visibility from the driver's seat is very good. It does not have a 'small car feel', and is not cramped inside for me. All the instruments have sensible placement, and the stereo sounds super, too. I hope everyone else can discover what Europe knows all along: small cars are efficient, cute, fun, and economical! Less is more, and it's good for you and the planet!
VW Golf TDI auto
USA Torjager14 - Northern Virginia07/21/2012
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.
