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

Pros

Fuel Economy, Performance

Cons

Oil system has failed once, Front wheel drive gets annoying sometimes

Golf 2.0l Tdi — I have owned this car since new, and it is fantastic. The performance is wonderful for such a small car, the 113 kW (in the 2.0L Australian version) get you off the line, and the turbo is nice. There is hardly any dirty weight transfer going around corners. It is a beautiful car and the fuel economy is unparalelled amongst other cars of it's size.

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.

White Trash By Shirley

best for smashing up cross-country until there is nothing left; not really fair to say it's 'Road worthy' (also as in I don't think this car DESERVES to be allowed on the road). Read More
