How does the TDI Golf perform on the highway? Does it struggle to go with the flow of traffic which is often 75 miles/hr. in my part of the world? If anyone has a TDI and can answer please do so. Thanks

#5 of 10 TDI struggle? hah!

Struggle in traffic at 75mph? HAH! It'll easily go up hills at 80mph that in other cars you would have to downshift to 4th or 3rd. Don't look at the HP rating - look at the torque rating. People who look at the HP rating don't understand that it's at 3750RPM only.

#7 of 10 VW Golf GLS TDI Price
Nov 02, 1999 (8:28 pm)
Yesterday I took delivery of a 2000 VW Golf GLS TDI, 5-speed manual transmission, with Northeast Emission Req't, Luxury Package, CD Changer, and Monsoon Sound, which I purchased using carOrder.com. The total invoice price of my car, including options and delivery (according to Edmonds), is $18,386. I paid $18,596 (plus VT tax and title). carOrder.com paid the dealer an additional $895, so the dealer was happy too.
The entire process, from order to delivery, took less than two weeks. My carOrder.com rep., Lisa Riley, was a pleasure to do business with.
More importantly, TDIs rule!
#8 of 10 Be willing to travel

Hello all! I just wanted to share my experiences trying to purchase a 2000 Golf GL TDI manual. My local dealer refused to budge from the MSRP ($16,720). He claimed (and probably correctly) that the TDI's are rare and that he would have no trouble selling them, so he wouldn't negotiate. I accepted this explanation, and after putting in a downpayment and waiting 6 weeks, he still could not locate the exact one I wanted (even with a choice of three colors). So I started looking on the internet myself. I found one several states away that matched my requirements, and that dealer was willing to sell it for $16,200. The lesson? If you're willing to do some searching on your own, then travel a bit to get one, don't settle for what your local dealer tells you. Lucky for me, the time limit on my local purchase agreement had expired, so I could ask for my deposit back without any trouble.
