“VW Golf Mk V - 3dr 1.9TDI”

published 19/08/2005

Spacious 3dr, drives like a dream

A few electronic teething problems

I have had my golf for about 2 months and done around 2500 miles in it. I purchased the Golf as an ex-demo car. The first thing you will notice when you compare the Golf to equivilent 3 doors (Astra Sport Hatch, Citroen C4 Coupe, Renault Megane) is the sheer space. In all the others cars I...

Haphazard reliability and common on the road

A large part of my job involves having meetings with clients at their premises, hence my company has a decent selection of cars for the consultants to use for travelling. Amongst this fleet is a silver diesel-fuelled 1.9L VW Golf Mk5 TDI. As I drive a Ford Mondeo, I am used to a silky smooth and...

Sleek, stylish and well designed

Can't think of one!Get

Hooray, I've been promoted!!......I was lucky enough to be able to choose a VW Golf as my new company car!!. Seeing as I've already had it 2 weeks, I felt that that was plenty of time to give it a bit of a mention on ciao! I'll concentrate the majority of this op on the model that I have, rather...

Understated style for those with taste.

Too understated for some tastes.

About our car Our car has just arrived and looks stunning in silver, the colour is optional metallic paint at an additional cost of £365.00 and a front centre arm rest at £120.00. The centre arm rest is really essential in our mind as it gives additional air vents to rear seat passengers and also...

“Golf MkV 1.6FSI SE”

published 21/08/2004

Very roomy

Engine a little flat

On the whole, the VW Golf, even though one of the newest models released onto the market is probably not as radical as some of it's competitors such as Renaults Megane or Vauxhalls Astra, but never the less it is still a VW, and when people purchase one of these German marques there are certain...

“The New Golf V 1.9 TDI”

published 15/08/2005

Safe and Economical

Squeak and Rattle

I have just clocked 1,000 miles (yes a RHD!) and have moved on from a Golf Mk4 which was also a TDI. Initially the overall comfort and styling held me in awe, and once again the blue console back-lighting is fabulous. As you start to get used to driving this car, the acceleration, road holding...

Not for me

Residual market value

Expensive - has become too clever for itself

I have a 2007 MK5.5 golf hatch 1.9TDi - all I can say is that it is appalling compared with a MK4 golf I have (MK5.5 due to the new type engine with 132g/km CO2 emission). First a simple stupid design: fitting a chrome rim to a coin tray on the dashboard! It causes reflection in windscreen and...

1.9TDI Match 5 door . New Sept 07. Sarah's car , but a few observations from me...We are absolutely delighted! I own a recent BMW 530DSE and yet in some ways the Golf is more fun to drive! We didn't expect this. Highlights of the recent "Match" spec include an ipod interface ( holds it and...

“A lovely car”

published 20/10/2006

Handling, fuel & the badge

It's just a bit dull

I currently have a Mk V golf 1.9TDI Sport. It's a company car and I end up with a smile on my face every time I drive this car. It handles so very well I previously had a MkIV golf V5 which I loved, this car handles better than the V5 does and it justs seem to have so much grip and you really...

“Small yet big”

published 02/04/2008

Small and spacious, can satisfy a lot of needs

Can't be considered a family car

With a very flexible and dynamic suspension, very elegant interior and well calculated engine size and power management, Golf V became the best car for teenagers, especially girls, who like the comfort of a limo and size of a small, city car. I got one for myself 3 months ago and I must say that...
