STW car gurus,
I was in my wife's Touran TDi last week when a foreign lorry driver T-boned me and the car is now a write off. I was borrowing it as my mileage (>30,000/year) makes commuting in my fantastic Hyundai 4x4 (25mpg) a bit steep!
Insurers have given us a reasonable price and my wife will drive the 4x4 (12,000/year) until we replace it with another Touran.
I was looking at a mk 6 Golf 1.4tsi DSG. Chain cam, no DPF, still reasonable (on paper) economy. (Octy banned by wife btw!)
I know the 2.0 TDi would be mega in economy terms but there is a chance my commute might drop soon too. Plus the modern diesels have been torpedoed by the drive to have economy for the EU test.
So, anyone got one? Bike rack on top? Economy? Fun? Comfort?
