Great All Around Car — If you are looking for a well built Germany auto and it needs to do alittle bit of everything you cannot go wrong with the VW golf. I got the car with 90K 4 years ago and now have 156K and other than keeping up with the standard maintance it owes me nothing.

Money Well Spent As Its Proven To Be Very Reliable And Is Always A Pleasure To Drive — Simply Brilliant,Fast,torquey and still acheives 55mpg,very sure footed handling which is almost impossible to upset no matter how hard you drive it,Has to be one of the best cars on the market for performance, build quality,reliability,and retaining its retail value.2.0 Tdi 6 speed worth the extra money over the 1.9 Tdi.

Golf Tdi Sportsline — This car is awesome when it comes down to fuel consumption, but I believe some of the quality has been lost due to manufacturing in South Africa.

Pros

fun to drive, will never break, has tons of airbags

Cons

it's slower than george bush,

25

Extremely Well Made, Very Safe, Fun To Drive, And Cheap To Insure — The 4th gen golf is safe and well made, stability control, ABS, and side airbags come as standard. It's got an antiquated 115bhp engine, but it'll happily rev up to 6500rpm through the gears. It goes from 0-60 in under 9 seconds, which is faster than a yaris. It's very heavy, so it feels much bigger than it actually is. Push it through the corners and it'll go on three wheels before it lets go. It's great fun to drive, and it's extremely refined for an economy car.

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

Little reliabilty issues

My Tdi — Fun to drive. Has some get up and go. It's a great commuter car. It gets really excellent fuel economy, but it does have some reliability issues. We've had 2 sunroof water leaks and the hatch back lock selenoid is not working properly. It is a fun little car though.

Pros

stylish, performance and accelleration is a bomb

Cons

the body is a bit fragile to kill it off easily!!

65

Very Good But A Fragile Heart!!! — pure nice this is the bomb, in performance and style. the acceleration is quite good as well,the inside is big and comfortable enough to drive. the only downside was that its a bit fragile in place which might put ppl off but overall is a geniune buy for secondhand and a future classic!!!!!
