    its a good solid average car. but there are better golfs,
    the pump diesel tdi is very good and has good power too, they are reasonably quick and economical.

    In all honesty you can do better. The SDi Golf is a NON-turbocharged Diesel. It has all of 68bhp to lug its 1200kg-odd carcass around. You will fall aseep waiting for it to do 0-60mph & if you want to go somewhere a bit far, it’ll need an MoT halfway there!
    It, like all VW Diesels, will sound like a skeleton masturbating in a filing cabinet. Also the ‘e’ spec means BASIC trim level. The mileage won’t be as good as a more powerful car as you need to cane the bejeezus out of it all the time.
    Get a turboDiesel, or preferably a petrol Golf. They’re smooth, quiet, fast & still do 35-40mpg.

    The 1.9L normally aspirated diesel is a good donor engine for an older, lighter VW. For the A3 Golf, you’ll want the 1.9L TDI (Turbo Direct Injection). The TDI ups the ante with 90 hp and 155 ft-lb of torque. With the manual tranny, you can expect about 50 MPG (US Gallons) on the highway. For the newer cars which come with the 1.9L TDI-PD, you can expect 100 hp (up by 10) and a couple MPG less.

    For Gas (Petrol), the 1.8L (Canada or Mexico) puts out about 100 hp. The 2.0L (USA, etc.) puts out 115 hp and 122 ft-lb of torque. The 2.0L sips fuel at around 32 MPG highway (again, US Gallons. Imperial Gallons are more). There are also 1.8T and VR6 engines available for gasoline (petrol) lovers, but the 1.8T is turbo-charged and requires higher octane fuel and the VR6 drinks more also.

    The 1.9L TDI will beat many gas engined cars across an intersection (0 – 30 mph) and drops behind the 2.0L Golf by a slim margin at 60 mph. The normally aspirated 1.9 – not so fast.

    The fuel efficiencies I have stated are for manual transmission (5-speed) cars. Automatics are a little less efficient and a little slower off the line.

    great car, if you get it in the right year you can get 50mpg hwy. that is as good or better than most any hybrid considering hybrids get on average 20% worse mpg than advertised diesel is very cheep in the summer. 100hp 177fpt
    or 90hp 155fpt not bad also many std features and its safe.

    I test drove this car before, I personally noticed the huge low down torque, they are not really really noisy, the acceleration is a little slow, but i have seen plenty of Octavia Taxis that use these engines which according to one I talk to they are very realiable as long as everything is changed at the correct time and of course due to the lack of turbo charger there are less to worry and more economical, however they don’t have air conditioning or electric windows so make sure you are ok with this spec.
