I'm pretty sure that i am echoing what other people have written about the GOLF GTtdi 130 however here goes.
Amazing power to MPG ratio... How can a car be this quick and still do 40-50 mpg? Its a fun car to drive i can honestly say i enjoy driving again ( i used to love going for drives when i was 18... Always starts without any difficulty.
It must be hard wearing as its done 105k and still feels amd looks like new. Even the interior is not showing signs of wear that most cars do at 100k plus.
PLus points its relaible, economical real mile muncher, fun to drive, all the switch gear is just right and i like the trip computers functionality.
Down side, rear wash wipe stopped working, frequent bulbs blowing on the rear, having alloys the tyres need frequent air, (tho i have found this on most cars with alloys) Top turbo pipe blown off (£75 for the part i fitted it my self), MPG drops in really cold weather and the engine takes quite some time to get top normal operating temperature so its some time before the heater starts to work.
Even with all that said, its not enough to put me off.. i'd still give it 9.5/10
