I am convinced that every vehicle has its’ ideal environment.
For our diesel Land Cruiser that would be crawling over some rocks at 2 mph in the middle of nowhere.
Our Golf TDI on the other hand likes cruising long uninterrupted stretches of highway where both stoplights and traffic are minimal.
Unfortunately lately our commute has been anything but interrupted. Granted we get to use the carpool lane, but even then it is not always smooth sailing.
