1997 Golf — My 1997 Golf, when running right is a joy to drive. Lots of power, handles great, never gets hot even in the middle of summer with the AC on and the car loaded with people. However, this is the 2nd one I've had that had the 4 speed automatic transmission that shifted hard. This one shifts hard from 1st into 2nd, and I mean hard enough to jerk your head back. The other one downshifted hard from 2nd into 1st to where you'd spill your coffee. Both had low miles (under 100K). So, I love it and I hate it. I'm gunshy about the automatic transmission and if I buy another it will definately not be an automatic. The rest of the car is worderful.

Sweetest Car — It´s a nice car, as fast as you press the gas, you can feel secure inside car and once you go speed you dont want to slow down, it sticks to the asphalt. It´s very comfortable. You want it!

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

Pros: Stability

Cons: weight
