2003 Volkswagen Golf GLS 1.9 TDI from North America
An economical car with great European look and feel to it
Not a thing has gone wrong so far, although I live in a rather cold region and for some reason VW still hasn't finished designing the block heater for my car! The dealer says hopefully they will be able to install one soon.
Transmission was very tight at first, still is a bit, but is loosening up nicely.
I'm very satisfied with this car so far. It gets incredible mileage (average of 5.889 L/100km so far; best has been 4.955 L/100km) and has had no trouble in cold weather at all, which I was a little concerned about.
Very nicely optioned, good looks, and lots of zip, even at highway speeds. The 1.9 TDI does a great job of moving the car, doesn't stink or make a lot of noise. And all for a very good price with an outstanding warranty.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
