1997 Volkswagen GolReview

Vw Golf Cabriolet — It's a great car to drive, very reliable, not overly expensive to maintain, more practical for the Mitre 10 trips than a sedan (it's a cabriolet), cos at lest you can drop the roof & put stuff in the back that way!! It's got the air con you need & a motorised roof - SUPERB car!!! I recently bought an Audi A4 & have to say that the ONLY thing the Audi has over the golf is the drive & pulling power up hills, but then again, with a turbo, you'd have to expect that. Thinking about selling the Audi & reverting to my Golf Cabriolet - it really is a fab car :)


Cons: not quite so much pulling power up hills as an Audi
