Model Highlights

Volkswagen's popular Golf and GTI enter their sixth generation in the crowded compact hatchback market the cars helped to define more than 25 years ago.

For 2010, both the Golf and GTI come as either 2- or 4-doors. Power for the Golf is delivered to the front wheels by either a 170-hp 2.5L inline-5 or 140-hp turbocharged direct injection (TDI) 4-cylinder diesel, which produces a hefty 236 ft-lb of torque. The GTI utilizes VWs tried-and-true 2.0L turbocharged inline-4 cylinder to put out 200 hp. A 5-speed manual is standard on the 2.5, while a 6-speed manual is standard on the TDI and GTI. A 6-speed automatic with Tiptronic manual capabilities and Sport mode is optional and on the TDI and GTI it also incorporates VW's Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG), which features a dual clutch system that produces incredibly fast and precise for optimal engine performance.

The Golf is a nimble handler and benefits from MacPherson struts and a stabilizer bar up front, with fully independent 4-link system and stabilizers in the rear. The GTI adds a front anti-roll bar and gas-pressurized shocks with special sport tuning for increased performance.

Standard features on the Golf include dual exhaust tips, halogen headlights, heated power mirrors, single-zone climate control, cruise control, 8-speaker AM/FM CD player with MP3 capability, 8-way manually adjustable front seats, a 60/40 split flat-folding rear seat, and one-touch power windows. The TDI adds fog lamps, tinted glass, 17-inch alloy wheels, a premium touch-screen stereo with in-dash 6-disc CD changer and MP3 and satellite radio capability, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity and leather appointed steering wheel and shift knob. GTI models are appointed much the same as the TDI.

The Golf does not lack for standard safety features. Technology designed to keep the car upright include Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR) and Electronic Stabilization Program (ESP), which features Electronic Differential Lock (EDL) and Engine Braking Assist (EBA), which prevents compression-induced skidding in slick conditions. Anti-lock brakes with brake pressure distribution and brake assist are also standard, as are six front airbags. Rear passenger side thorax airbags are optional.

Popular standalone options on the Golf 2.5 include several alloy wheels of both 17 and 18 inches, a sport body kit and power sunroof, while inside, buyers can add Bluetooth and heated seats. On the TDI, Xenon headlights are available, as is DVD navigation and a 300-watt Dynaudio amp and speaker system. The Autobahn Package, available on the GTI, features sport seats with partial leather covering and the power sunroof.


Model News

After a brief hiatus, the popular Golf returns to Volkswagen's lineup for 2010, replacing the Rabbit as VW's compact hatchback. It's available in both 2- and 4-door models, with power coming from either a 2.5L inline-5 cylinder or a 2.0L turbo direct-injection diesel (TDI). Meanwhile, the sporty GTI, also available in 2- and 4-door-trim, draws its 200 horses from VW's venerable 2.0L turbocharged inline-4. Prices start at $17,490 for the Golf, $23,489 for the GTI


Value Writeup

Now in its sixth generation, the Volkswagen Golf is all-new for 2010. The popular hatchback packs a load of standard features in a pleasing cabin, and despite its small size, the Golf is able to swallow passengers with ease and, with the rear seats folded flat, lots of gear. The TDI offers an impressive EPA estimated 30 mpg in the city, 42 mpg on the highway, while the GTI--the original "hot hatch"--is propelled by its turbocharged four from 0 to 60 mph in less than seven seconds.

Summary
VOLKSWAGEN IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL 2009-2012 JETTA AND JETTA SPORTWAGEN VEHICLES, MANUFACTURED FROM MAY 2008 THROUGH SEPTEMBER 2011, MODEL YEAR 2010-2012 VOLKSWAGEN GOLF VEHICLES, MANUFACTURED FROM MAY 2009 THROUGH SEPTEMBER 2011, AND MODEL YEAR 2010-2012 AUDI A3 VEHICLES, MANUFACTURED FROM SEPTEMBER 2009 THROUGH SEPTEMBER 2011, THAT ARE EQUIPPED WITH A 2.0L TDI COMMON RAIL DIESEL ENGINE/CLEAN DIESEL ENGINE. THE FUEL INJECTION PULSES COULD COINCIDE WITH THE NATURAL FREQUENCY OF THE INJECTOR LINE #2, IN SPECIFIC LOAD AND RPM CONDITIONS. THIS RESONANCE CREATES ADDITIONAL STRESS IN THE FUEL LINE.

Consequence
DUE TO THE RESONANCE CONDITION, INJECTOR LINE NUMBER 2 COULD DEVELOP SMALL CRACKS WHICH COULD LEAD TO FUEL LEAKAGE. LEAKING FUEL IN THE PRESENCE OF AN IGNITION SOURCE, MAY LEAD TO A FIRE.

VOLKSWAGEN WILL INSTALL AN IMPROVED FUEL INJECTOR LINE FOR THE NUMBER 2 CYLINDER AND WILL INSTALL VIBRATION DAMPERS ON ALL OF THE INJECTOR LINES. VOLKSWAGEN AND AUDI WILL NOTIFY OWNERS TO HAVE THE VEHICLES REPAIRED FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING NOVEMBER 2011. OWNERS MAY CONTACT VOLKSWAGEN AT 1-800-822-8987.

VOLKSWAGEN RECALL CAMPAIGN NUMBER IS 23J9/V5. OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .

Summary
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2010-2014 Golf and Jetta SportWagen, 2007-2010 Passat sedans and wagon, 2012-2014 Passat sedan and Eos, 2009-2014 CC, 2009-2012 Audi Q5, and 2010-2011 Audi A5 Cabriolet vehicles. Upon deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture.

Consequence
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants potentially resulting in serious injury or death.

Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag inflators, free of charge. Volkswagen issued an interim notification to owners on April 12, 2016. Volkswagen owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-893-5298. Audi owners may contact Audi customer service at 1-800-253-2834.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
