Golf Iii Tdi — Everything a Golf should be: great building quality, good looks, good handling. I actually like it more than its successor. The quality of this model is better. The sports seats give a great feel to every ride. The auto gearbox is obsolete and too slow to keep up a sporty pace. Materials are well sought out and the overall quality impression is good. The engine is pretty agile and has a low MPG return. Thanks to the 134bhp power supply, a sporty drive never is far away. The breaks should be better, though. They don't give me the direct response I'd expect.

Pros

Handling was amazing. Good gas mileage. Small, fun to drive.

Cons

Our car had a leak, tried to fix 2 times before they finally got it. Just before we gave it back (lease) things started to fall apart. Isn't that always the case with warranties though?

German Enginering! — Great to drive. Heated seats only cost $250 extra, well worth the money spent for WI winters. The mirrors were also heated on this package. 8 air bags standard! However limited room for legs in the back if you were an adult. Ok for the kids.

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.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

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

Great looking car!

Cons

Mechanical failures every other day.

Vw Mk4 1.4l 16v — I bought this car in 2005 with 107,000km (105,000 on the papers) on the clock. It is an incredible looking car in good condition, but the mechanical relibility is pathetic! I've driven the car 40,000km since I bought it and it breaks down more often then I care to recall. I've spent more money fixing than what a trade-in value is worth so I'm stuck with it. The service from VW was also a reason I'll never buy another VW ever again.

electrical misfirings - lots of them

2001 Vw Golf — Despite the electrical misfits of this VW year (2001) model, I love my car and will drive it to the ground! I would buy another VW, as this is my second one already. It's affordable, it's gas efficient, and it's comfortable. Did I mention it's fun to drive, too? Especially if it's a manual, like mine is.

dull to drive and VERY wobbly around corners!

Mk4 Vw Golf Gt Tdi — Still have this car; It's done c200k miles and has never let me or the family down. Looks old now, but you still see millions on the road - so that say's quite a bit about it. Not the most exciting thing I have owned, I must admit, but a Swiss army knife of cars.
