2003 Volkswagen Golf GTTDI PD150 1.9 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Goes like stink without drinking the drink!
Nothing however it has a few squeaks and rattles coming from the dashboard!
I absolutely love this car, I travel over 500miles for work every day so needed a reliable workhorse. I bought a PD150 in 2002 but had put too many miles on the clock so I replaced it with this my second! I know Golfs aren't the best handling or fastest cars in the world, but 150bhp and a return of 40-45mpg is pretty good. Boy racers don't stand a chance so it can't be that bad.
I love the way it looks I bought a set of 17" Santa Monicas and it makes the car look a little meaner without spoiling its original looks!
I'm not so keen on the insurance costs and the fact that it eats tyres like there's no tomorrow!
If I was asked to swap it for the newer one I'd have to politely decline it looks too much like the uglier brother of the 307!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
