1993 Volkswagen Golf

1993 was a changeover year for the Volkswagen Golf, with the older '92 models on their way out and the next-generation models slowly being introduced across the country, starting in California. However, the introduction of the new '93 models was delayed due to labor problems at the carmaker's plant in Mexico, so sales were limited.

The 1993 Volkswagen Golf came with a new 2.0-liter, 115-hp 4-cylinder engine and a five-speed manual transmission, which was standard. A four-speed automatic was available as an option.

Standard features for the Golf were beefed up a bit, when compared to previous models, and included power brakes, power steering, power door locks, bucket seats, a rear-window defroster, and an anti-theft alarm system.

Overall, drivers' impressions of the '93 Golf were positive, with fuel efficiency, roominess, and reliability cited as positive points. However, some drivers reported quality-control issues with the car.
