Pros

General Uniqueness and Quality / Performance for Money

Cons

Happy as Larry actually. Maybe the lack of 4x4 ? Although I only think about it very rarely...

Golf Gti "edition 30" — The extra money and wait for this model were really worth it! I love the extra 30 bhp and general feeling of the engine. The original neutral behaviour of the older Golf generations lives on in a muchly improved manner in this model. The extra touches of the "Edition 30" are not all that great, but make a nice touch, especially the red cord used for the stitching of the steering wheel and the shifter. I never regretted buying the sunroof option either ! And as for the wheels... well, you just got to love them! It uses between 9,2 and 12,5 litres per 100 km, and my general average is about 10,5 / 100 km. Not bad for an engine with that performance !

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

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
