A Great, Reliable, Cost-efficient Daily Commuter. — I've got 221,000 miles on my TDI and it's running like it's got a quarter of the mileage on it. It's a great commuter and the gas mileage is what sells the car. It is a little under powered but for 45 mpg's the sacrifice is well worth it. This car saved me tons of money on gas and maintenance. I would definitely buy a VW Golf TDI diesel again.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Amazing MPG.

Cons: Doesn't fit a family of 4 very well.

Fuel Sipper But Expensive To Maintain — This is an okay overall car. It can get up 750 miles on a single tank if you drive it right, but it has been expensive to maintain. The turbocharger stopped working and the price to repair it is so great that the car is essentially totalled. Great cargo space because it is a hatch with fold-down seats and a short wheel-base makes for easy parking in the city and a good turning radius.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great fuel economy

Cons: Quite expensive to repair and not very quick

The Perfect Young Adult Car — well off the line this baby is quite quick, braking is not to bad either. Well being a Golf, the clutch has been replaced only once. the exterior is eqipped with velociti rims, red line through the body and has tinted windows. Ofcourse this cars fun to drive... not only is it quick, it has a good sound system in it as well

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: everything

Cons: its a 1.4i only

4motion Is 4u — Stunning machine looks plain and simple but can be a beast when ever required. excellent handing and performance. Good all round car thats fun to drive. Maintenance costs are not too bad. Although can be quite costly if something was to go wrong.

Pros: performance and handling

Cons: fuel costs if you have your foot down.

Very Reliable Everyday Commuting And Family Vehicle With Excellent Gas Mileage. — Check and change the oil/filter on a regular basis and do all regular maintainence to ensure this vehicle (and any other) extends its lifetime for you and your family.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Lots of pickup (standard transmission) for a little car.  Great handling and fuel economy.  Very reliable and easy to maintain.

Cons: Heated (passenger) seat seems to be a problem as it stopped working.  The FL (driver side) headlight requires replacement at an unusually higher than normal rate (very cheap and easy to replace).

Excellent Good All Round Performing Car — I chose the golf 1.9 tdi because I wanted a good solid, reliable and fuel efficient car, and I got every one of the listed. Its downside is the lack of style and mod cons in the inside. But to me, the other is what is most important and so I chose it and have never regretted buying this car, I will miss it the day I choose to trade it in, but I will probably go for the same car again.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its sits on the road beautifully

Cons: Interior finishings, mods cons

My Golf — I love it because its from a very reputable company. Its of a solid build, and is very reliable. It sits firmly on the road and has good control and manouverability and takes bends well. It has a good breaking too, though my model lacks electronic stabilising which is of high importance to me. It also has reasonable space for passengers and luggage.I love the 1.9 tdi engine in it with great performance and value. I love the look of my particular model, though I not so convinced of the newer model, they don't give that impression of sturdiness and stability which was one the main selling point for me.The interior of mine could have been better, i.e. more comfortable and high-tech.I find it enjoyable to drive and feel proud to be its owner. Perhaps if it had more add ons e.g. alloys, tail wing, and a high quality interior I would enjoy it even more. In its price range,I rank this car best, though a little over priced..

Pros: Diesel, good performing and has a good feel factor

Cons: The inside lacks more sofistication in electronics and decor
