If You Find A Clean One Keep It, It'll Last Forever! — great car for someone single or as a first car, tough, reliable, simple, parts were cheap, great handling. It never broke down, I sold it to my brother, then he sold it to my other brother who sold to a delivery guy and it still runs today! Changed the clutch when i got it and that's the biggest repair i ever did.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handling, engine power, realative comfort

Cons: Color (RED!)  Everyone wanted to race me!

Awesome Car — OMG. 130k+ and counting. I bought this car new for 13k US because it was exactly what I wanted. I even used it to commute for about 10 years. I love the sporty euro look and feel (exterior and dashboard speedo/tach appearance). I also love the Wolfsburg Edition extras like the teardrop mags, the nice stereo, and the sunroof. I basically just think this is an awesome car. It has required very little maintenance. The biggest thing we did was replace the timing belt. I've recently bought a 2010 Mazda 3, but I think I will hold onto my Golf because it's just that cool. Yeah, it's starting to burn a little oil (some white smoke on startup), it has some front end problems, and it has a replacement muffler and catalytic converter, and it needs a little extra water in the radiator now and then. Still, after 20 years of living next to the Pacific Ocean, it's a wonder it has only needed minor things like a fuel filter and clutch cable over the years. Great car!

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

Pros: FUN! Tracks and grips the road like nothing else. Handles beautifully.

Cons: The year before they added air bags. Somewhat noisy.

1991 Volkswagen Golf 4 Dr Gl Hatchback — Performance: Slow low down in the revs. Once the turbo kicks in it is Ok I got 90MPH out of it no problems. Brakes are Ok, you have to have faith in them. Handles a bit rolly polly but plenty of grip. Bulit Quality: Very good. Appearence: Nice classic car. Cost of Ownership: 1.6 Turbo Diesel very economical Fun Factor: I loved it!

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

Pros: Nice classic car will only go up in value. So economical and good for 90MPH

Cons: Old. No Power Steering may be too heavy for some.

1991 Volkswagen Golf 2 Dr Gl Hatchback — Performance: Not very fast, reasonable. Brakes are Ok. Handles well on low springs and shocks but doesn't like potholes or speedbumps. Build Quality: Very Good. Not a lot to go wrong. Appearence: Very nice, especially on a hot, sunny day with the top down. Cost of Ownership: Very thrifty Fun Factor: Loads of fun. Can't beat it.

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

Pros: Looks Great with the top down.

Cons: Would be better not so low.

Definately An Enthusiasts Cult Vw- And Rare In The Uk Too. — Very fast with a 68 mm SC pulley- about 190 Bhp. Would still acelerate in Germany at indicated 245 km/h! Good brakes, understeery handling, some torque steer and wheel spin in third! Golf GTi Mk G60. Solid build quality- puts equivalent era Fords to shame. Classic Golf Mk2 looks- with big bumpers. Good gas mileage-easy to achieve 28-32 mpg on a run. Zero depreciation- made money on this car. Lots of fun- very understated- easy to take on Porsches and BMWs on the autobahn and leave them for dead on the right lane.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Speed, acceleration. practicality, understatement.

Cons: If you like to buy new heaps of tin. Fear of speed. If you care about electric windows and MP3 players.

More Blood Sweat And Tears Than Money Is Worth — This car is so much fun, just point it, floor it, and go. This thing is like a go-cart on steroids. It fells likes its on rails and is years ahead of it's time. The tiny 4 cylinder 8v motor only has 105hp in a car this size it is fun to drive. The 16v GTI version is perfect if you want a little more go.

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

Pros: Look at it!

Cons: because it's mine!
