Why the 2003 Volkswagen Golf?

Fuel economy

Consistently good city fuel economy. Highway economy varies by how fast you want to get there.

Powertrain performance

Torquey, smooth, easy to drive.

Materials & workmanship

Good quality. No stupid plastic pieces breaking under normal use, interrior stays together, no sqeaks, the odd rattle when on a really rough road.

Reliability & durability

Has been reliable for us. Has never left us stranded. No wierd unpredictable breakdowns, just regular maintenance. Diesel motor is durable if maintained properly.

Why Not the 2003 Volkswagen Golf?

Reliability & durability

This car could cost you a lot in repairs and maintenance if you do not do some research and get to know it a little more indepth than another car. Have a reputable VW or more importantly TDI expert work on your car.
