Comfortable, economical yet fun to drive, great looks
2011 Volkswagen GolfDrew - , 06/30/2013
I got this car used my Sophomore year. I was surprised by the performance this car had to offer, its quick acceleration and stickiness to the road was impressive. This car has saved my life (from my parents) on two occasions. I had to stop when someone on the highway slammed on their brakes on an over pass, the ABS brakes stopped the car incredibly fast. Secondly, I went off-road on a wet day and this thing stuck to the ground and got me back on the road with no scratches on me or the car at all. I definitely recommend this car to anyone who wants both safety and performance in their car.
2012 Golf TDI

I have owned my Golf TDI for about 8 months. I am continuously surprised by the engine performance of this diesel car. I was expecting great mileage and handling - it's a VW after all. The acceleration however, was a complete surprise. This thing is a rocket! Fit and finish are excellent, although there is an odd bit of wind noise above 55 mph from the door area on the drivers side. We just experienced our first snow and I must say, this car is very sure footed. The ABS is there and available for sudden/panic stops but is otherwise not necessary. The diesel version is a bit pricy and while the price of gas has fallen recently, diesel has not. Still, the additional MPG outweighs the cost per gallon. Overall, I am very pleased and would encourage anyone looking for a fun economical car to consider the VW Golf TDI.
