2011 Volkswagen golf tdi. Solid car.

2011 Volkswagen Golf

My current car is a 2011 Volkswagen golf tdi. The car is recently purchased. The car's overall performance is top notch quality. It's exactly what you'd expect from Volkswagen. This is the third one I have owned. Their track record always amazes me. The car gets amazing mpg, it has more than enough power. Lower horsepower but higher torque, so the car picks up and moves. It handles like a champ as well, it doesn't even matter that the car is a front wheel drive. This car handles as well as some all wheel drive car's I have driven before. All in all I give the Volkswagen golf tdi a 5/5 rating. I will be purchasing another one soon to keep as a daily commuter.

Fun and affordable car for your daily driver.

2011 Volkswagen Golf

I have had no problems. It has been a very reliable car and gets very good gas mileage. It is very fun to drive on mountain roads. maintenance has been very easy and affordable. I used to own a VW rabbit that was just a few years older, and felt that it had a better interior trim package than my newer golf. That is my only complaint. I miss the heated seats and center console!

Handling and ride quality.

2011 Volkswagen Golf

My ecu unit died today. 57000 mile on my car and it dies. Hopefully it is covered by my warranty. Other then this the car handle's and drives great. I need to fill this with words so the other thing I can about the car is there are problems with these cars. Read up and look at the problems. They are well documented. Only but this car if you look at the known problems.
