Not as well built as you'd think, rock hard seats,...

Every year our local paper holds a “motor show” on the Park. The idea is that there’s a collection of new cars to look around, some classic motors to tyre kick, a chance to drive a bus or a fire engine together other “fun” things to do. When this started it was quite a glitzy affair, every local...

“Bad boy diesel”

published 18/05/2004

Appearance, fuel economy & equipment

Suspension & handling

My VW Golf TDI looks a bit different to most, I have modified mine with some lovely 18 inch RS4 Replica alloys (normally seen on Audi TT Quattro and Audi S3) so it does stand out from the crowd and is a bit of a head turner if I must say so myself! I also added some smoked black hella rear lamps...

Update 30/01/02 (Start) Had this car for exactly a year now! Some other information! Winter - In the winter (i.e. now) the mileage returned from the diesel is slightly lower than in the summer. Thats because the diesel is cold and the engine needs to use more power to heat it up, thus less miles...

No real huge disadvantages

I've owned my Golf TDI S for almost 5 years now, and I've been really pleased with it. Unfortunately my insurance company have purchased the car back from me following a 7 vehicle pile up (not my fault!). However, I thought I'd put the experience to good use and tell you not only about how great...

Not for me

Performance & MPG

Bloody everything else!

Well this is the story of my time with my Golf. What can I say, I had 2 previous Rovers beforehand and both had been pretty good reliable cars. However I was on the market for something diesel and my friend had recently bought a diesel golf and it seemed very quick and offered good mpg that I...

“VW Golf SE TDI 90bhp”

published 07/09/2003

Quality and a refined driving experience.

Not the fastest car on the road by any means.

It took a while to locate a car with the specification I was looking for, (a Volkswagen Golf TDI SE 5 door hatch 90 bhp - in either silver or green, and within my budget of £10,500), even by using the VW website and doing whole country searches. I had already called in at all of my local dealers...

“God's car”

published 17/02/2001

I just fell in love with it

cost (maybe)

I have had my VW Golf since August, 2000- it's a 4 speed automatic, GTi. Before I paid for it, I considered the Honda Civic and Ford Focus hatchbacks- I really like hatchbacks because they are small but can still carry a good amount of stuff around in the trunk. I settled on the Golf because a...

“not a GTI!”

published 26/06/2000

Frugal

not a GTI

The car is not a GTI but is swift and handles well. It's best feature is the frugal turbo diesel. I've owned one since January and have averaged 48mpg over the 7,500 miles I've travelled. That includes some hard motorway driving as well as lots of town driving. the car's torque is brilliant and...

“Good - mostly.”

published 26/02/2002

Performance, economy, practicality

Build quality, chassis

This car replaced a Golf IV TDI SE, after a brief drive in a Bora 110 TDI confirmed that the "GT" suspension was a great improvement over the underdamped SE chassis. It is not perfect - it can still get caught out on poor surfaces, and feels a bit remote, but is still fairly enjoyable. The ride...

“A car for everybody”

published 27/08/2000

nice, little car

much too expensive

I am a golf addict. This one is already number 5 in a lomg line of golfs that began with the very first model Volkswagen ever issued. Well, there are two things which are not so nice: 1. The price! Boy, they really like to take it! 2. I have to sleep, work and live a little bit outside the car:...

“Golf 1.9 SDI”

published 29/09/2000

Good Drive and loads of space

Few extras

Having taken a job with a 80 mile journey, and following on from advise from my sister who already had a '97 diesel golf I purchased the 1.9 E sdi Golf. The service from the dealer was good and 15% of list price helped in this deal, with the Volkwagon name. I have already covered 2000 miles in 40...

“LITTLE MONSTER”

published 02/02/2005

You never have to fill it up

same golf style

In typical VW style the TDI is a good all rounder, it performs well in the city, on motorways and in the country lanes. I have had a long history of driving VW's and this is my favorite. It doesn't have as much power as the my previous car the Vento but this car was always developing problems and...

the handbrake design

This was my first ever VW I bought this via an action when it was 18 months (June 2003), the car had 24,000 miles and FSH. It was around 16k new I paid around 10k for it, thought that was a good deal. Drivability is very smooth and comfortable compared to my last car, Peugeot 106. Just was I need...
