2001 Volkswagen Golf SE 1.9 TDi PD Estate from UK and Ireland
Excellent performance, economy and quality
Only thing replaced under warranty was the remote key was reprogrammed as it was a little bit intermittent.
This car does just what you want from a small estate. Great economy (55mg at cruising speed of 75-80mph), okay at 90mph to 100mph (49mpg). Drove at top speed on the motorway for 20 miles at 126mph and the diesel engine was quiet and refined. Great torque for easy overtaking. Excellent brakes and ESP stability and ASR traction control make light work of snowy conditions. Estate means we can pack the car up with wine when coming back from France. Overall very good. So good I won't be coming back to petrol!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
