Just a quick intro. My wife and I each purchaced 2011 Golf TDI's. We had been driving a 2010 Nissan Frontier SE 4X4 and a 2007 Toyota FJC 4X4 heavily modded. We had a lot of fun with these rigs and they were very reliable. With the cost of gas going no where but up, we decided to bit the bullit and go with something more fuel efficient. Hybrids were looked at, but we decided on the diesel's. Hope we have made the right choice.
