TDI WOW by MBT from Tampa on 10/22/2012. Trim: 2013 Volkswagen Golf 2.0L TDI 2-Door, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The TDI engine is amazing. Drive 50 miles each way to work and use less than a tank a week. Like playing a video game to get the average up to 50. Way better than the sticker said. That said everything else is as it should be with a nice touch screen radio and nice little perks like night time cornering lamps.
Cons: Hey, it is 2012. How about auto headlamp on and off. Every kid in a civic wants to race at each light.
Overall review: Came out of a Mercedes for this car and don't miss it. Our other car is a E class Bluetec and this is just as nice to drive.

Cons: Plenty of Neighbor envy.
Overall review: Very happy with this vehicle. Would recommend it to anyone.

Great product for the money and for the milage that you get. Stylish too.. by M on 06/05/2013. Trim: 2013 Volkswagen Golf 2.0L TDI 2-Door, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: This is my 3rd VW Golf, and I rated 9 at some of the presented questions because I am VERY picky.. However, the car it is very well build and exceeds many expectations. The manufacture could do a little more and touch some small details while leaving their doors. Since I already owned 3 Golfs and one Touareg then that might be a reason I keep coming back for the very affordable and outstanding quality in general at this German product vs other German products (Benz, BMW, Audi, Porche) or other quality brands out there.. I had a little issue with one of my previous Golf, but nothing that can't be fixed.. Other than that the car was great and performed well over all. These TDIs last forever..
Cons: Usually the genuine parts are a little pricy vs after-market options if necessary. Therefore I would suggest to everyone out there, that you will NOT wait for the manufacture suggestion in order to change the very usual parts such as : engine oil and filter (original VW) with the quality ones and OBVIOUSLY at 5K miles instead of 10K miles as recommended. Don't go cheap, you will regret. Diesel engine filter at 15K miles instead of 20K miles as recommended. Air filter without any doubt at 15K miles, and the cabin filter. Use every other tank of diesel fuel the "Lucas" additive product in order to protect the engine for any deposits and for the smoothness and performance of your engine.
Overall review: I will buy this VW product again if necessary. Special because you can't beat the mileage of this small and economic car. Quality and overall performance. This 2.0 Turbo Diesel VW Engine it is well proved outstanding motor and the car itself dominates the European roads for many many decades.. You just have to get used to the rhythm of the engine performance since this is a diesel engine and do not abuse it period. This car should last at least 20 years in normal driving condition and mechanic visits when requires. Do NOT confuse this car with racing cars and never engage in any of that. DO NOT FIL YOUR TANK WITH GASOLINE (some people already did), and IF you already did by mistake, DO NOT START THE ENGINE WHATSOEVER.. Immediately contact the towing company and let the dealer drain the gasoline before you drive it again. IT WILL BE CHEAPER THAT WAY, running your diesel engine with gasoline even just for a less than one minute. This Turbo Diesel Engine of this car will outlast the body.

Piece of junk by Pat NY on 01/13/2013. Trim: 2013 Volkswagen Golf 2.0L TDI 4-Door, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Sharp looking....../.but beware
Cons: Broke down after 2000 miles brand new 2013.....junk 10,000 dollar repair. Big deal they fixed it under warranty. They crashed the body while fixing it so now I own a car that was repaired both mechanically and the body, VW does not have a good customer service at all. They dont stand behind there cars.....guess they know there junk
Overall review: Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere.
