Fun Little Car — Bought used when looking for a commuter with good gas mileage. Carries one bike in back with front wheel off. Also has rack on back for bike. Lots of room in back seat but not easy to get into back due to 2 door version. Waiting for fuel economy to get better as engine continues to break in!

Best Car I Owned — i have owned BMWs and Mercedes my whole life but nothing beats this super fast slot car that gets over 40 miles to a gallon and costs under 30K! This is my third VW and my first TDI. Im never going back to a gas car.

Hybrid Like Mileage With And Audi Like Feel — Very nice car that's a definite upgrade from the previous generation (which my wife has). Navigation system is very nice, but there's room for improvement there. The car is great at freeway speeds and the 6th gear really helps with fuel economy.

Little Bit Expensive — very good car,handling is exellent and acceleration and braking are very good,it is not a volkswagen car if you know what I mean(spell it on english)because it is too expensive it cost me 27 000 euros .Appearance is the best the car looks like a real beast and has a very good design inside too,gas is not a problem because it is not spending a lot of gas and for end it is a fun car because of its acceleration and gearbox and very good handling i love it

Pros

Mpgs,never left on side of road. 6m 3rd gear is spectacular pulls with or better than most any 4-6 cyl. Went to a grand touring tire still great grip but much better ride and quieter.

Cons

Diesel staying higher priced when gas went almost a dollar cheaper.

To Bad America's Not Ready For Diesels In Cars. — Have seen 55.5 mpg's but if drive the way VW wants you to, over 2k rpm's mpg's drop to mid 40's. 2k rpm's =72mph in 6th. Need to improve exhaust (particulate filter) car could be so much more. European spec 170 hp 300+tq stock this would really wake up the states. Used for everything commute,little spirited driving towing 2 dirt bikes on small utility trailer Ohio to New Mexico long stretches over 80 mph temp never moved.

Diesel Is The Way To Go America...!!! — I bought it in late 2010 and have only driven about 9200 miles( as of April 2012). I love the car, I wish I could drive it more but my work is only 2 miles away and we have another car which is a lease so we drive that more. Wish it had leather seats.

What I Think Of My Car By Tom P Aged 27 And A 1/2. :) — Quick off the mark but handles like a growbag. Needs stiffer suspension, but it's still a Golf so I'm happy :) Cheap to run and insure, i haven't had it serviced yet and it needs a new nose cos i drove it into a peugeot and lost. Lame :S

Golf V — this is a great car. The car has a great weight/bhp ratio, a great look and handling. the only draw back is the maintenance cost and fuel economy. It's a very fun car to drive and i recomand it.

My Rv — I think VW TDI are great cars to use in countries with high fuel prices, such as Europe. In such cases, diesel is the only option to drive without spending a fortune. Within diesel engines VAG TDI's are among the best: low diesel comsumption and many horse power!
