Hello everybody,
I've been searching the market for a used Golf mk7.

Personally most of time I use the car on daily basis (home-work-gym) a total of 30-40km per day. But I have to mention that I live in Kosovo (a country with heavy traffic). So normally I drive around 10,000- 12,000 km a year.
Diesel here is horrible low quality, so I had experiences with previous diesel engines and many failures & repairs. So my focus moved on petrol engines. (And i like the noise of "silent" petrol engines:D)

I found few Golf mk7 2014-2016 (manual transmission), for the same price range.

1.4 TSI (one 122hp, 125hp) around 100-110k km

And 1.6 TDI (105-110hp) around 110-115k km

Wich engine would be better? And more reliable, since I plan for keeping the car atleast for 3-4 years. And maximum I would add 40k km on the car.

thank you!

I would stay away from the TDI and go with the TSI engine. I did a switch from the 2.0TDI to the 1.8TSI (because of Dieselgate) and I am not regretting it.
