Slow car fast

Want to whipe the smile off of that one guys face after he challenges you to a red light race? This is the car. (I'm talking about the TDI model as that's what I own btw). The acceleration this little car is crazy, so fast you'll have to adapt some for of throttle control you you wont be spinning in place (even with traction control on I might add). And the styling is superb, you honestly feel like your in a german vehicle. Elegant , powerful and honestly in my experience you get it all without having to go back for repairs every month. The only issue I've had is a dead battery as the fan in the engine can sometimes stay on if it starts cleaning the engine as diesel vehicles do. 10/10 vehicle


Most reliable car I’ve owned

I loved this car, I honestly never thought that I would feel so comfortable and because all the pieces are very economical, If I had the money I would buy it for you, good luck friend in your sale


2011 Golf TDI

Good power, tight handling, all around good vehicle with good MPG's. They seem to last a long time. There are a ton of them on the road.


Not bad aye.

Good car. 'Solid' is the word I'd use to describe it. I've had many cars over the years and some feel like they're made of tin, things wobble, things rattle. Everything on this car feels solid, sturdy and built to last. It's quality.


A very fine & complete car

So far, I have been very much enjoying my 1.6 TDi Match DSG. Comfortable,smooth,quiet & well equipped. DSG box is excellent. Classy & classless car.


Very Sporty and Exceptional Fuel Economy

The Volkswagen Golf TDI is one of the best cars I have ever owned. It feels sporty without the hefty price tag that comes with true sports cars. The interior is very nice giving you that rich feeling while driving it. The exterior is very plain and subdued which I like so as to not be flashy. It consistantly gets excellent fuel economy, about 40 MPG on average city/highway combined in my experience. The storage space is surprisingly large for a "small" car and I don't feel cramped inside. This is a great car if you are looking for a reliable daily driver or weekender.


Super Reliable and solid

If you are looking for a small hatchback this is the way to go. Solidly built and sturdy I had no issues with my 2011 golf. Reliable and powerful for a small car. Interior can feel a little small if you are a big person in the driver seat. Passenger seats are all roomy and comfortable.


My first car is so good!

This is a good car for people in the age of 20s. It is powerful. The price is reasonable and the car is reliable. The driving experience is so good. Although compare with GTI, Golf is a little bit basic, but the price a Golf is much cheaper than a GTI.


A Keeper

Bought this car used, but in 2011. Coming up on 6 years of ownership, it's still so pleasurable to drive. Quiet and tight, responsive and agile all are descriptive. It's been very reliable, with only standard maintenance. I've tried to be proactive about servicing the car, following the owner's manual to the letter. Highway gas mileage easily hits 34, with over 27 overall. This Golf still looks great, with outstanding fit and finish. See no reason to not keep it for several more years.


Awesome car

plenty of space on the inside stylish interior. Exterior it's pretty conservative but overall a great car.
