I bought my 2010 Golf 2.0 TDI SE secondhand at the end of January. The car has been used to tow our 1100Kg caravan and general driving. I have had two concerns both fixed under warrenty. The first one rear light cluster held condensation and the second both front doors would squeak when travelling on an undulating road. The car is very economical on diesel giving over 60mpg solo and around 40mpg towing. On a long run travelling at legal limits the car manages mpg figures in the early 70's. The car has an excellent turn of speed and I would recommend a Golf to anyone who needs a small/medium size car that is easy to drive and very quiet on the road.
