Perfect — its too fast and too adngerous as a performance, as acceleration, braking, handling . takes alot of gas but it doesnt matter as long as u dont run alot with it. Most important is that its really fun to drive!!!Amzaing

Off The Hook! — performance - 0 to 100 km in 5.0 sec build quality - never needed repairs, no sound what so ever appearance - best volkswagen, a work of art from inside out cost of ownership - it's pretty hard on the gaz less than 100 km per gallon fun factor - it's super fun specially in fast turns

God Bless Ferninand Porsche Who Established Vw. — the acceleration is not that good coz it only 1.4lts but the braking and handling is superb. the build quality is awesome. the appearance is quite "macho" if u know what i mean. cost of ownership very little so far. the car is REALLY fun to drive.

Great Car — It was a Golf 2.0TDi GT - loved it ! Quick, stuck to the road like glue. Shame about the lack of standard add on's like cruise control which the equivalent Honda had but generally a nice car. will have another one soon hopefully.

Nancy Wagen — Performance: 1.4 Turbo engine says it all, German braking and 4WD handling makes it perfect. Build Quality: Your usual German tank like build Appearance: Not bit your teeth gorgeous, but still good. Cost of ownership: Excellent, fuel efficiency drops when its pushed to its limits. Fun Factor: Extremely fun to drive

Rollerball — its just a perfect car for all times, it has small body which helps in making the car more flexible. About performance, golf is known for its stability on the road hile driving with high speed and also it could be modified sportly with an amazing appearance !
