My favorite so far! by Lindy from Foster, RI on 08/12/2003. Trim: 2002 Volkswagen Golf GLS TDI, Owned 1 year.
Pros: I've owned 5 Golfs and ''02 TDI is the best yet!!! It's the first diesel for me. Even though I didn't like paying $2.20 last summer; I will never go back to gas!! No problems so far! Best one was my '89 made in USA!!! Worst was my '99 made in Germany!! Sharpest VW I owned, but complete engine rebuilt (courtesy of VW) at 99,000 miles. So many problems with that one!! This one accelerates just as well as any I've owned. I'm a VW Golf owner for life! Why more people haven't discovered this little jewel, I don't know!
Cons: My chief complaint is not being able to install an electric car starter! The dealer and several national companies did not recommend one. If anyone has one in their diesel, please reply. It's the only thing I miss. My biggest problem with this model year is the cup holder placement. Can't change the CD unless you close the holder. At least this one is sturdier than the '99 model. My '96 was the best designed for cups. VW should go back to that model.
Overall review: TDI is VW's best kept secret!! If VW would only offer this in 4Motion.......
