1996 Volkswagen Golf 4 Dr GL HatchbackReview

Its A Golf....... — Always wanted one, so I got one and still have it. With a decent 1.8 8v engine its quick enough to have gotten me pulled over at least once. Interior is reasonable and generally comfortable. Seems fairly easy to work on to and parts are of an acceptable price. Overall its what I wanted if I couldn't afford the Gti.......

Pros: Speed, reliabilty, comfort

Cons: Its getting old now and likes to eat petrol like a fat kid in a cake shop

Hasn't Let Me Down Once, Just Won't Stop For Anything — Everything works as it should, parts a cheap enough to come by as most as still manufactured. Huge second hand market for spare parts also.

Pros: Good fuel economy when everything is fine

Cons: Can rust in areas in earlier models this one not so prone but still some weak spots.
