  • Handling
  • Looks/Style
  • Front Seats

  • Family Car
  • Value
  • Would Buy
Front Seats Ranked 1990 Geo Prizm better.
"Theres more leg room which is a major factor for comfort for me, even with slightly less headroom, the front seats are better."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 1990 Geo Prizm worse.
"It being a hatchback, its almost obvious that its gonna have more storage room than a sedan."

Vw Lovers Car — always been a dream car. worth it to own. lots of space inside and lots of fun. one of the classic cars that car lovers should own or at least drive. old enough to have its quirks so best for the tinkerer

Pros: fun to drive. easy to find parts/ work on. classic looks and style, comfortable and quick

Cons: bad for non enthusiasts to own

Nice Car With Minimal Problems — This was my first VW and i owned it for 5 years, it was really reliable and never let me down. I then sold it to a mate who had it for about a year or so. This was completely standard.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: My first descent car

Cons: gearboxes can be a problem

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Appearance - old skool cool Cost of Ownership - 40-75 miles to a tenner depending how you drive Fun Fact...

Cons: Bad rost on lot of places on the car.

Great — Best car I've ever owned, previously had a Mk1 diesel, this is auto sun roof, electric windows, alloys etc. 1.8 L three speed auto is very smooth and the injected petrol is very responsive. From Japan with "Golf" only badging.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Drives like a dream

Cons: Not made any more

Get One! — Performance - goes well with a few mods Build Quality - pretty good, usual wear and tear items!

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

Pros: FUN!

Cons: costly if you by a rubbish one
