2011 Volkswagen Golf TDI

I’ll admit that not the best person to comment on the for one big reason: the transmission. I’m new enough at driving a stick I can’t blame the car for most of my and jerky shifts.

With said, the TDI’s weak does seem to be that even with the superb lump of low-end torque it pull away from a quite as smoothly as I’d After having driven TDI a while back with the I’d say the Golf with one has a bit more lag than the TDI with the Save the money you’d spend on the Dynaudio stereo base one is more than and spend it on the snappy autobox

Overall, the car is very good. The VW TDI is a package deal, a car that is the sum of its parts. No one part of the car feels it’s been the victim of cost-cutting.

With all the gripes coming us auto writers about bargain basement models looking at you, Jetta and the Golf is one of the last of VW’s offerings that offers the interior and exterior quality made us fall in love Volkswagen.

Ben shouldn’t feel bad about a hard time with the transmission in the Golf TDI. been driving stick-shift since the 1970s, and when I this TDI, I stalled it than once, both away from a stop in gear and at low speed in second I don’t consider myself a at using a clutch pedal by any of the imagination, but there was something this transmission that me feel like a klutz. underway, however, the Golf TDI itself quite well. nimble around town, effortlessly on the highway, and gets good fuel economy.

The is far from luxurious, but the materials are and the ergonomics are very good. are minimal — just dials for climate control and a that is simple to operate.

The only changes like to make to the order include opting for the four-door, and the bi-xenon headlights for $700 and the weather package for a very $225. Heated seats go a way in a diesel VW because it takes the so long to heat up on cold days.

Audi adds a electric space heater to the A3 TDI to that fact, but Volkswagen offers heated seats.

I Volkswagen is chasing market with the new, more Jetta and Passat, and I’m to tolerate that so long as like the Golf remain German and fun to drive. There’s an balance between ride and sportiness in the Golf that it an edge over most commuter cars. Even the TDI well when you enthusiastically an off-ramp, and the engine revs quickly for a diesel.

It’s not as energetic as the GTI, but a reasonable trade-off to gain a 50 improvement in highway mileage.

The will never be as popular as the or the Passat are expected to be, but Volkswagen committed to this niche, products like the Golf R to the States. I just hope enthusiasts remain committed to to justify the effort required to the fun cars headed our way.

The Golf, especially in TDI form, is a appealing package. It strikes a balance between sportiness and livability, between fun and frugality, offering enough interior to accommodate four adults in at least on short trips. The of the interior finishes isn’t as good as in my 2009 GTI, but it looks neat and stylish and the and supportive seats are some of the comfortable offered on a sub-$30,000

Like Phil, if I were my own Golf, I’d choose the for the added utility and because I its exterior proportions. The manual in car is less rewarding than the one in its sibling but it’s light and and easy to use. Without I would choose it over the DSG autobox and put the $1100 I saved the heated seats — an necessity in a diesel if you live it’s cold — and the headlights.

So I guess Phil and I have matching TDIs.

Whether it has a five-cylinder, a four-cylinder, or a diesel engine, the Golf is an excellent compact The common threads among all models are a fantastic interior, steering, and a beautifully tuned The only decision you need to is whether you value price, or efficiency the most.

I remember struggling with our Seasons Jetta TDI’s the first time I drove it, but now it’s familiar, I actually the weight, travel, and feel of the in this Golf TDI. this engine does heavily on its turbocharger for even acceleration. If you allow the clutch to up too soon when taking off a stoplight, the engine bogs and you’re locked into a pace until you hit 1500

Any owner will quickly to compensate by letting the clutch out the appropriate progression.

Even as become more lively each new model, diesels the frugal and fun alternative for people who to drive. While it isn’t this Golf TDI produces of torque at any rpm, making it for squirting through city Working the six-speed manual to the engine spinning fast but the 5000-rpm redline keeps the engaged and entertained.

During my night with two-door Golf TDI, I a friend who is shopping for a diesel SportWagen. I’d spend my on the more nimble Golf, but he the fact that the Jetta the cargo capacity while the same excellent 30/42-mpg Either way — Jetta TDI or Golf TDI — he’ll end up a great car.
