Ok — its nice car but its not recommended in gulf area, it has too many electrical problems because it has 2 or 3 computers in the car .certainly u find warning light on the dashboard lighting and to reset it you will pay much money .

A Fun Car For Every Day + Even Perfect For A Couple's Vacations — Doesn't consume much gas and works with the less expensive ones (88 and 91). It's a manual so it gives the driver more control and makes it even more fuel efficient Has all the options needed (sun roof, heated seats, CD player...) Robust as most VW's!

Buy It If You Have Extra Money And You Do Not Care About Spending It On Car — Nice car, really love it but it is a big headeach when opens her mouse for any break down or maintainance. It is perfect in case you are rich and ready to spend on maintainance and expensive spare parts.....go for Japaneese cars do not use complicated german once.

Pros

Safety is not an optional with volkswagen.

Cons

Avoid off-roading of any kind.  Kit is extremely low.

Rocks. — Great acceleration and handling. Braking suffers a bit due to body mass causing lots of inertia. Its build is comparable to a Panzer tank, pure German style - undestructable. Its interior is feeling the wear and tear of every day use for over eight years. Average gas mileage and maintenance is a bit expensive compared to other cars of the same market level. It is always fun driving a golf!

Vw Monster — VW Golf Lool , best car you will ever drive. Gearbox is not that perfect, sometimes doesn't fit the correct shift, very good for flat streets and drag races, also the best car when it turns to tuning contests. buy it LOOL

It drives like a german car should!

Cons

Cost of parts...and the engine size.

My Golf — I love my car. I's stunning. The only down side is that I drive a 2.slow. Little pick up. It makes a lot of noise, the engine purrs...but it goes nowhere. I enjoy the gas mileage. I tend to get about 300+ a tank. I had to strip the sticky plastic off the interior. I couldn't handle it. I installed smoked tail lights by hella. My car is so fun to drive. And it SCREAMS "Sara" every time you see it!
