Almost the Perfect Car for Me.
I have a TDI which I bought used 8 years ago. The original owner bought this car with everything on it. In 2010 they were still building the Golf in Germany; a German engineered car built in a German factory. Although a compact vehicle, it has the solid build quality of a larger, more expensive car. The diesel engine, even after the "fix" to bring it into compliance with emission control laws, performs well (the torque at low range make it very quick) and still gives my around 44mpg on the highway. The DSG transmission is a dream. I could go on, but suffice it to say that the combination quality and performance render the TDI the all-around best car I've owned.
