2010 Volkswagen Golf TDI: Love/Hate

Living in the vital U.S. city, we do not lend towards to compensate most courtesy to theavailability of motor fuel fuel. When we hopped in to the 2010 Volkswagen Golf TDI hatchback we was worried I'd onslaught to find the place to fill up, though we was glad to see motor fuel was some-more widely available during least in Chicago than we thought it would be. we even found the single station where motor fuel wascheaper than regular gas! Unfortunately, perplexing to lane down dieselfuel was the least of my problems with this car.

Love: Modern motor fuel engine
My main exposure to motor fuel cars prior to to their recent reappearance inthe U.S. was the receptive to advice of my neighbor's early '90s Mercedes-Benzchug-chug-chugging up the driveway. You could hear that thing from ablock away. There's nothing of that impact with the Golf TDI. The carsounds somewhat different than the single with the gas engine, though it's no louderthan the gas-powered car; it's not even noticeable if you do not know tolisten for it. This compact hatchback also has utterly the bit of zip, eventhough the engine usually creates 140 horsepower. This is the single of those timesyou have to compensate courtesy to torque figures. Its 236 pounds-feet oftorque is about 8 pounds-feet shy of the 2010 Subaru Impreza WRX. Iexpected the glorious fuel economy from the Golf TDI, though the way itmoved through trade with gusto was headlines to me.


Hate: Automatic delivery in stop-and-go trade
My problem with the Golf TDI is the same emanate we experienced with the2011 Ford Fiesta. Both cars have the dual-clutch automatic transmission,which done stop-and-go trade painful. On stretches of open road thegear transitions were seamless, though upon the undiluted interstate the Golfwould lurch and stutter forward when we pulpy the accelerator during lowspeeds. Maybe using the paddle shifters would alleviate some of this,but we can't suppose I'd wish to bother with those in the middle of atraffic jam. The gas-powered Golf has the some-more traditional six-speedautomatic transmission. A six-speed manual is standard upon the TDI, butfor city driving an automatic is preferred. The dual-clutch transmissionimproves fuel economy by 1 mpg main road to 30/42 mpg city/highway, though Ihope it gets the small some-more polished prior to it starts showing up in evenmore cars.
