The Golf TDI is now 2 years old and has hit the 35,000 mile mark. The first 35K has gone really well. The car has been rock solid mechanically putting my concerns about VW reliability at ease. I have had no trouble finding diesel fuel on the rare occasion that the TDI needs to refuel. Over the past 90 days the TDI has averaged 37.46 miles per gallon. Over the life of the car, the TDI has delivered a solid 37.5 miles per gallon.
All in all the Golf TDI is an excellent package of fun, versatility and stellar fuel economy.
My first Volkswagen has delivered a solid ownership experience and I will not hesitate to consider purchasing another VW diesel in the future.
