Pros

Reliability, Fuel Milage, Maintenance Cost.

Cons

99.5-2004 have the famous "Slow-Down Shudder" with the 5 Speed.

45

Yes. Yes. Yes. — Ridiculously long-lasting Diesel engine and reliability. Amazing fuel milage (50+ Highway, 45+ City) and (this is random) the most powerful and coldest A/C of any car I have ever been in. I have put $215 in repairs into this car in 10 years. I am getting another one.... uh...... Will someone please give me some money? :)

Pros

German engineering- looks good and Gas Mileage

Cons

electrical problems and costly maintenance

35

I Like The Car, Not The Problems — Great car for gas mileage and for parking in small places. volkswagens all have electrical problems... boo! My car in currently telling me the car door is open by a constant ding, ding, ding... I can get it fixed for about $350 dollars... I choose not to drive unless it is absolutely necessary. Fun factor- I'd say this car is fun to drive. Would I recommend this car to a friend... no, I'd say get a Honda or a Toyota. I hate for you to ahve to buy German parts $$$$$

Golf Tdi 2000 — I love this car, german cars are just superior. Power is OK if you think that its a 1.9 TDI engine. Sure It needs some repairs but no big deal. The diesel engine dont drink at all, I can make like 800 + km on one tink of diesel. Its great with the price of gazoline those days lol. If you look for a car that is realy fun to drive then its the one. I love my Golf :)!!

Pros

Fantastic car, has never really l let me down in 9 years

Cons

No dislikes, car is great

25

Worth Paying A Lttle Bit More For German Engineering. — Reliability, feeling safe, economy. Highly recommended. The previous qualities are all the things I require from a car. The car cruises on the motorway and for a diesel is very quiet with good acceleration when required. Car sill drives well with 180.000 miles on the clock, thinking about changing but I am reluctant to get rid of ... I may buy some trouble this car has spoiled me.

Pros

If i had more time to look for the car a i would of gone for the 130 bhp because i have read reviews on it, i was planing no getting to 150 gtitdi but got told theres to much power of the car the to take and dont go past 100k on the clock.

Cons

There not not much i dont like about this car i really love.

25

Once You Have Gone Vw There No Going Back! — Build Quality- Its a VW what more can i say. Performance- Its only the 115 bhp but its fast and dose its job for me and my family. Cost- These car are a hand full cars that hold there price.

Great To Drive But If You Get In Wiyh Your Lead Boots On, It'll Empty Your Wallet Quick Time — Ok the golfs great fun to drive-bit heavy if im honest though this does give it the big car feel. You can throw it around an the tail will always come back, very forgiving in the corners. also i love the feel of the ride-you can always tell when its letting go. Down sides are the weight.. yes you get great safety but you pay for it with silly fuel bills, an i cant help driving like i stole it sometimes on those quiet mornings when noones about. all in all a great motor, it'll put a smile on your face one the way to work an sooth your furrowed brow on the way home...
