Diesels had issues in the cold. Growing up in Massachusetts our family friends had a diesel rabbit. I remember them pulling a lever to warm up engine before starting ( glo plugs), but they ended up with an engine block heater you plugged into an outlet. Plus you needed winterized diesel fuel.

The first car I bought was a gti (mk3). It was fast and fun for the time..
