Wanted to downsize from my Honda Ridgeline to a more fuel efficient vehicle. Looked first at the Hybrids which had great mpg but there was no excitement there. Ho-hum acceleration, boring interior, uncomfortable seats. Read about the 2010 GOLF TDI model and decided to test drive one. For a 140hp turbo diesel engine, this car MOVES. 0-60 in just over 8 seconds. Not as fast as the Golf GTI, but fast enough. I have 1300 miles on it and am averaging 33mpg in mostly city driving. With two adults, two children and a trunk full of luggage, I averaged 43mpg on a 130 mile trip. This was doing 70-90 MPH. Steering is super smooth, cornering is like driving a go-kart. The cloth bolstered seats hug you nicely and give you the itch to race. DSG German-engineered Tiptronic transmission is incredible. Paddle shifters on the steering wheel, a Sport Mode on the joystick, and manual shifting mode make this the option to get. I was lucky enough to get the Nav system, Dynaudio 300 watt radio and iPod/iPhone dock. Built-in Bluetooth and free maintenance for 3/36 sealed the deal. All for under $25,000. If you want 45 mpg in the city, go get a hybrid. If you like a car that is economical AND fun to drive, buy this one!
