This fully loaded 2014 VW Golf TDI four door hatch has been babied since day one and just barely has 5K miles. It has a premium Dynaudio sound system, easy to use in-dash navigation, power moonroof, climate control, powerful headlamps that swivel on twisty roads to keep the road ahead well lit, Bluetooth, power everything, heated seats, i-Pod integration plus power everything all while returning over 50 mpg highway with ease. Around town it averages 38-45 mpg but keep in mind the car never requires Prius style coasting and hypermiling to be efficient.
With 6-speed manual and the same suspension calibration as the GTI, this Golf TDI is one fast, fun to drive and frugal hatch. Dogs are ok in the back seat so long as they don't get carsick. No smoking please. Lastly, I am a professional auto journalist who has driven and reviewed over 500 new cars in the last 41/2 years so my Golf TDI is rarely unavailable and hopefully let's you feel at ease that I would never buy or rent out a bad car.
Very interested in anyone looking for a fun, frugal long rental that they won't be embarrassed to drive. Ever notice how many Prius owners have their cars listed? Boredom.
