Great Looker And Ride — I like taking turns with the car, it was fun to drive. Brakes are good, is good in the snow. Helped my wallet with the gas mileage. I liked the brand and think they make good cars and this one had a quality build, I felt safe.

Pros

I think the Golf is just about the most perfect car made. Fun to drive and absurdly practical. it has an amazing weight to it and level of finish that you just don't see in other cars of its size. It is as comfortable on the highway as it is in the city.

Cons

more repairs that i would have liked, but we owned across the 100,000 hurdle, so we paid for everything. Now it is all set!
Gas mileage, It drives me crazy that a car this size can't do more than 32 mpg on the highway.... it just needs one more gear!

Best Car Ever — There was nothing I did not like about the car except I wanted one more gear in the transmission. Oh, and we outgrew it. it is tight for a family of 4. no problem at all for 3. I will miss it.

It's Going To Be A Champion — This is my racing ride, i love riding it on the track. Hopefully we will enter racing competition soon. It has an upgraded suspension coilovers (made them myself). 2.0 engine with 5speed transmission. I'll test it on the dyno soon.

Hot Hatch — This is by no means a standard Golf. Everyboday knows what Golf mark ones are like and writing anything of such would be stupid. The 1.4 has got a custom fabricated turbo system with watermeth injection which delivers 115kw on the wheels.

Tdi Was 'green' Before 'green' Was. — $17k new in 2001 - 153k miles - 9 years -1 driver. 38 MPG was worst; 52 MPG was best; 43 MPG is typical. Great handling. Consistant performance. Golf TDI's are finally back on the dealer's lots @ about $23k. Think I'll get another as soon as I wear this one out.

Tork Is At 155lb From 1900rpm To 3500!!! — What I like about this car is the tite drive, when I turn corners it goes were I want. I also apreciate the performance of the car, even if it only 90hp I can easily drive 200km/h, overall this car is really fun to drive and it's cheap on fuel, I do about 1100km with 50 bucks :P
