German Wolf On City Streets — I had this car for just under 2 years and it was fun to drive, especially on the smaller roads in Ireland. It had 75HP engine and the fuel consumption was low and gave excellent mileage. It handled the corners very well and because of it's low center of gravity the performance and handling was good.

Pros: Handling,fuel consumption, good for city driving

Cons: Low clearance and the underbody used to hit the speed bump , or if there is a bad pot hole

One Good Car! — If you buy a Golf make sure it is colour coded and the engine is bigger than a 1.4 L.

Pros: Excellent interior and exterior with reasonable acceleration.

Cons: During wet conditions the car's handling becomes very, very poor. I should know.

Very Fun To Drive And Quite Versitile. Performance Is More Than Expected. — This is my car and has over 205k on it. It runs almost like new and still smokes the competition. It's the most fun in winter; it being front wheel drive, it handles unbelievably in snow. However, the weight distribution isn't perfect and is front heavy. My Wolfsburg is exactly a GTi with the exception of it being 4-door instead of 2- and there is no VR6 option. It's got an ABA, which is a SOHC inline-4 with 1981cc of displacement, kicking 115 hp and 130 lbs/foot torque but trust me; it feels like much more! It's not the most aerodynamic car on the road lol but I think it's the coolest car ever. But don't take my word for it; it's my first car and I love it to hell. The boxy-style doesn't please every one. Reliability isn't perfect. I've had a few things break since I've had it and the electronics would need some revising but overall, this is an awsome car! German cars rule!

Pros: Handling, performance for what it's got, luxury, style.

Cons: It's small, so it's hard to "get things done" in the back seat. lol

It's Ok — It has 131K on it now. Several problems with the rust around the license plate on the hatch the most annoying and likely the most expensive to fix. (Yet to do). It is good on gas (40 mpg) and quite fast and looks good. Driver's seat is a pain to adjust and not that comfortable. Relatively quiet.

Owner for 1 years, 0 months

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Miles Driven per Year:20,000

Pros: Hatch is super and carries a lot of stuff

Cons: Nagging little problems constantly
