Vw Golf Mk Iii Driver —

I bought my Golf Mk3 Driver second hand. This vehicle has been an absolute pleasure to drive. I have had a few small problems with it but nothing I was not able to fix myself. The biggest problem I encountered was when the drain ducts that allow the water to escape from the sunroof inlay got blocked. The inlay filled up with rain water and subsequently overflowed into the roof lining and down into the car. Keep this in mind if you ever own one of these and make sure you keep them clear by checking the exit point just below the front door hinge. The vehicle is an 1800 with an electronic carburettor motor putting out 66kw (about 90bhp). Being an older vehicle, fuel efficiency is not fantastic but decent for this type of vehicle if driven well. As for me, well, I have a heavy foot so she gets a tiny bit juicy. She does accelerate well for her age and I have managed to successfully push her to 120mph. All this coming from a motor that has 135000 miles on it. With the car's lower centre of gravity compared to other MMk3 Golfs, handling is active and responsive and helped with power assisted steering. VW have always been known for their supreme build quality and this car is no exception. A 14 year old vehicle that has been exposed to the extremely wet climate of the UK as well as the raised acidity of coastal air can be expected to show some signs of body ageing. However, no main chassis rust is present although the front edge of the bonnet, the grill trim and a small spot on the boot lid have some spots of rust. Inside the upholstery is dark to hide dirt and the seats quite comfortable. As previously stated, she can be a bit juicy if driven hard although on a full tank of fuel (about 55l including reserve) I was able to drive from London to Stratford-upon-Avon and back (a round trip of about 220 miles) at 80-90mph and still had just below a quarter tank left. Maintenance is relatively cheap if you send it to someone but most simple jobs like servicing are so easy, with a bit of reading on the internet and the right tools, you grandma could probably service this car. This car is really fun to drive and I intend to keep it for quite some time

Pros: Zippy, handles well, build quality

Cons: Juicy, the sun roof drain pipes can cause serious problems if not checked regularly.

Right Car At The Right Time — i love the cuteness, the response to acceleration. the suspension is nothing to write home about,and of course the A/C is wonderfull. fuel efficient. yes the car is fun to drive. the cost of ownership is subjective,the braking is super,the interior and exterior is just right.

Pros: cool

Cons: bad suspensions

Fine Oldie — Given this car is 14 years-old, it is quite alright if you consider what is was worth in 1994. You can't except much from a 90-horsepower car, but it is at least fun to drive if you put good tires on it and if you take good care of it overall. Of course, low power means good fuel economy and old technology means easy repairs and cheap parts! So, for a first car, why not if you can somehow manage by yourself in mechanics!

Pros: Fuel efficient, cheap and easy to repair

Cons: Has lost its new car smell a long timg ago...

Making The Hatchback Cool Again!!! — Overall the best platform Vw has ever built. Power is not impressive but still fun to drive. Has the 2.0L 8V I-4 that is almost indestructible and is very cheap and easy to maintain. This is the perfect car for any car enthusiast. Takes corners beautifully and can stop itself pretty well for the 10.1" braking system. Space inside the car is by no means spacious but it is comfortable. All guages are lit in a factory green glow and are easily read. Cargo room is there but not a great deal of it in the hatch, but the back seat folds down easily to make the extra room. You will be amazed at how much you can stuff in there.

Pros: Great get up and go, smooth and short shifting. Gas mileage from 25mpg in town to 32mpg freeway.

Cons: Ac works but never blows insanely cold, the beaver and tan interior colors are very difficult to keep clean

My 1994 Retro Mk1 — Having spent a lot of money and time on the car, I have learnt to look past the little problems and see the big picture. The car is great and I will most probably never sell it. Its not too light on fuel, but hey, worse things have happened. :) Kthxbye.

Pros: Its Ol' School!

Cons: Fuel Consumption

Vw Golf Gl 1.9 Tdi — Mark III looked kind of retro. 1.9 TDi engine picked up pretty well, but not without the guy being being in a black cloud of smoke! Suspension was like being on a boat in rough sea and when i went wrong it cost you big time! Felt like an old mans car, would definately reccomend going for a young VW rather than old!

Pros: Huge boot space, comfortable seats, pleanty of room for all passengers and driver

Cons: Suspension to squashy
