“Best car i have owned”

Written on: 16/05/2012 by NATHANCJ (1 review written)

Bought this car from one owner a lady, i was shocked on how quick if was for a diesel. The car was chipped to 200 Bhp from 150. I think 150 is enough power. Driving this car was so smooth and comfortable no squeaks or rattles. The engine pulls like a tank through all gears and response is instant when accelerating. The mileage is now 155,000 and the fuel consumption is fantastic. I have not done a check to what miles to the gallon it does, only know that just putting a tenner in last me three… Read Full Review

“Great set of wheels”

Written on: 04/01/2012 by Rob1048 (1 review written)

This car has been very reliable from day one and has never failed to start. The economy is amazing for a 150 hp turbo diesel engine. It does 55mpg+ on my occasional trips from Cornwall to London averaging 70 to 80mph. On a 10 mile journey, driven carefully, I once managed 80mpg. This compares very well with my 2 litre ZX Citroen which would only do about 30mpg. Strangely, the economy has improved since I first bought the car (at 10k miles) and has now improved by about 1.5 mpg at 50k. The… Read Full Review

I have always been a Golf GTI guy but decided to test a mint 150 GT TDI in Red to see what all the fuss was about, and was i not impressed!!. I loved the car so much i bought it straight away and drove home in it that day! Its such a joy to drive, all that torque is just on tap for when you want to use it to overtake, the interior is typically German and beautifully made, though a golf is quite bland inside mine has wooden steering wheel and inserts and colour coded Heated Recaros in Red.

“Ive only had this vehicle a short while but what a car! ”

Written on: 07/11/2010

Ive only had this vehicle a short while but what a car!
The interior is just so solid, well built & you instantly know your in a bit of quality engineering.
The massive power the engine produces gives you acceleration in most gears at most speeds when the engines past 1800 revs.
Im still loving every second beind the wheel & cant stop smiling every time that turbo kicks in.
All this & capable of 55+ mpg if driven frugily.
Mines 7 yrs old but looks & drives like new.
My advice, if your thinking… Read Full Review

I have a GTI 150 PD Exclusive, which I bought off my father last year, it's been a great car, being the exclusive it has full cream leather which is heated, headlight washers, multi function steering wheel, VW Sat Nav which not only displays on the main unit but displays and replicates onto the main centre display on the clocks, many only have the half display but mine has the full display and it's a god send, it's only done 67k with a full main dealer history so is still a spring chicken… Read Full Review

Didn't like Golfs as the interior is very bland then someone said look at the 150 diesel I did took it for a test drive and the rest as they say is history. Be careful very careful in the wet or snow the front end jumps away from you with all the torque that is available, 50+ at 80 on motorways about 500 to the tank got the car with 45000 on it may be selling within the week and it will have done 115000, a few bits and pieces needed doing like the front wheel bearings had 3 front lights as they… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/04/2010

The golf 150 diesel is a cracking car that I have owned since new without a single failure. The 6 speed box is great but also necessary as the range in the low gears is short. The car is a highly practical small family car with isofix for the kids seats and a split rear folding seat. It is a testament to the quality that while I have replaced my other car twice while I have kept my Golf. In fact I have a dilemma. At 8 years old I feel that it is time to finally replace the car and having tried… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/03/2010

I bought this car after weeks of research into the purchase, I wanted a Golf GTi, always have, it was just a case of whether to go for the 1.8 or 2.0. Thats what I thought until during my research I came across numerous write ups on the 1.9 diesel PD150. Higher MPG, lower depreciation, better performance, the choice was made for me, and I am pleased it was.
The car returns 45 MPG running to work and back, 55-60MPG motorway runs. When I want it to the acceleration makes me grin from ear to ear… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/03/2010

For the first three years I was not impressed with this car, the handling verged on dangerous and it was in and out of the dealers. The turbo and ECU were replaced unnecesaraly (Air mass sensor was the cause!). They even managed to dent the floor pan!

As soon as it was out of warranty got bilstein dampers, which tranformed the cars handling. (Later cars seemed to be better) And once away from the main dealers the car has been pretty reliable now at 185000 miles and going strong. Nearly always… Read Full Review

“Over 50mpg in real-world conditions. A great car...”

Written on: 11/02/2010 by carl l (1 review written)

Over 50mpg in real-world conditions. A great car which, in countries with high fuel prices, makes petrol cars look rather silly. It won't rev like a petrol so can't be used as a true sports car but it is an a mazing daily driver- swift, frugal, safe and practical. The 6-speed 'box has a good feel and the revised damper rates, while still a little wallowy, transforms the feel of the car from the lower-end fourth generation Golfs.

Only fault I found with the car is the brakes were inadequate… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/07/2009

I have owned the gti tdi for 1 year now and coming from a line of BMW's and other hot hatches this is my first DIESEL and i have to say once you get used to the typical idle noise the car is really good, the speed is awesome once the turbo kicks in around 2500-3000 rpm all hell breaks loose, the mpg is amazing returning 40-48 urban and 50+ m/way miles. The reliability is so far perfect with mine being an 02 with 88000 on the clock. My only drawback is that most peolpe think i have stuck a GTI… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/09/2007 by david shutt (1 review written)

Only just got the Volkswagen Golf GTI with 35,247 miles on the clock, bought from a VW approved garage in West Yorkshire. Overall the car feels great with bags of power, like someone else said the handling is not just as a true GTi, put that aside and look at the whole car then its not that big an issue. our car is rare it has heated leather seats which is a plus. Great car, hope to have it for at least 5 years, also there is such a car that has power and economy yes… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/08/2007 by adrover (1 review written)

Torque - wow did that thing pull. Cruising up that steep hill on the M5 near Bristol doing 80mph in 6th put my foot down and it was doing over a ton before I realised. The stability program really works too. Throw the car through some twisty road then do it again with it switched off, you can feel the difference. Reliable, good fuel economy, cheap insurance for a car with that sort of performance. Tank build quality. I had the anniversary bodykit fitted with the BBS alloys and it looked great… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/04/2007 by tricky911t (1 review written)

Best car to date was a 1991 Golf GTI MK2 last of the Mk2 which was a fantastic car despite blowing the engine up several times I had that car for nearly 10 years and I kept it when I got a top of the range Saab 95 Aero which was quick but very juicy. So I flogged the Saab and stuck with the MK2 until I got the MK4 GTI with the TDI150 engine because fuel economy and performance is important for me. The Mk 4 is a nice car and if you switch the ESP (aka traction control) off you can get more out… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/04/2006 by Elricardo (20 reviews written)

I bought this Volkswagen Golf a year and a half ago following much research on review sites. I had recently moved some distance from work and needed a comfortable car with affordable running costs and an edge of excitement when the red mist descended. I was not disappointed with the Golf Mk IV - GT TDI PD 150. It is a great all rounder for a person who wants everything in moderation.

On seeing the car I was impressed, as mentioned in a previous review the 150 sits lower on the road than the… Read Full Review

Chris7494's Response to Elricardo's Review

Written on: 30/07/2006

Excellent review. I test drove both the 1.8T and 150TDi myself, have to admit the fuel consumption on the 1.8T in real life is only around 25 to 30 from most peoples experiences and TDi always seems to be around the 50 mark. In terms of everything else, equipment and extras, i was very impressed with both cars, makes it a hard decision which to buy. As i don't travel really far, then petrol won for me. But if i'd have travelled a long distance to work the TDi150 would have easily won for me too!

347113_Bobh's Response to Elricardo's Review

Written on: 23/02/2008

I agree with this review because this has been very similar to my experience. I viewed the Focus and the Mk 5 golf but found their interiors had a rather lower quality 'feel' to them and were not very inviting. My wife agreed, so there was no contest. The 150 body is not so stiff as the latest Mk5 model, so there is a little bit of a creak occasionally, a bit like an old athlete trying to get his act together. However, once the motor gets interested, it is off like a shot and I think surprises other motorists. It does not feel as agile on the bends as my previous 2 litre Citroen ZX and also the ride doesn't soak up the potholes and speed ramps with anything like the same aplomb, but it is a great long distance cruiser, having just gone to Manchester and back well into the 70's ( and a bit more) and returned an average in excess of 57mpg. The ZX 2Li petrol would be drinking more around 25 to the gallon of petrol at that speed. The gear change is much more precise than the Citroen and everything seems to be much better screwed together. All the clever little details reek of quality. The car had 11k on the clock when I bought it and now I am up to 19,000+. We both still think it is a little gem and besides the fuel consumption it also has a very low VED rating, about the same as my wifes cheapo Renault Clio. All in all this, so far, has proven to be a first class driving and financial experience. Unbelieveable.
