Pros

Discreet classy sports hatchback that's practical and well built

Cons

Dont avoid buying a looked after example

25

Very Good Value For Money - Not Fastest Hot-hatch, But Excellent All Rounder — The 1.8t was a fairly quick car in 150bhp form - although this power could be easily re-mapped to over 200bhp for around £300.00. Braking was amazing, but handling in general could have been more sports orientated, however - it was such a good all rounder and a totally capable motorway cruiser. Earlier examples had Recaro interiors which are a really nice touch, there are certain common weak areas of the car such as coilpacks/window regulators, but nothing you cannot sort out with a bit of DIY. Sold mine with over 100k miles and it was still driving like a new car. regularly got over 35mpg

Good Car — The turbo ensures good acceleration and sounds cool. The handling is good. The best things are the ride quality and build quality, good german engineering. I like the apperance too nice interior. The fuel consumption is average, 35 mpg ish.

comfort, build quality

Good Motor — only problem seems to be the oxygen sensors. other than that love it. performance is not the best but it has plenty of toys. was a little expensive but worth the few extra pounds. i would like to buy the higher powered model as my next motor. recommend to anyone

Vw Golf For Life — to total my words, vw golf is the best hot hatch in the all world, i mean you get from it what you want from any hatch bac car and more: cool appereance, powerfull engine, great handling and adrinalen pump when you step on it ( super burnouts). its prices are good in compare with the other cars from the same level and the dealer is good but a littel costy. i will always drive vw golf inthe future but it will be a GTI or a R32.

51 Gt Tdi — 51 plate Golf GT TDI - the quick economic diesil monster. Wheel in 4 corners means this car drives like a dream, acceleration pushes you back in the seat and you can chuck this baby about without worrying if you'll end up in a field. Diesel powered means it's super efficient too - Bounus!!

Pros

Great looking car!

Cons

Mechanical failures every other day.

25

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.

Pros

looks, performance, handling, fuel economy

Cons

expensive to maintain, pick up

25

Its Worth It — its an amazing car, and a wonderful drive. not the best pick up but u feel the kick once u hit 120kmph n it goes all the way to 260, that shows on the meter. perfect handling, minimum vibration, great suspensions, n the millage is an icing on the cake. a fun car to drive, specially when u wanna corner at crazy speeds ;) but the only drawback is it really hurts ur butt in various ways when u need to take it to the shop, german afterall ... but its worth it
