Tork Is At 155lb From 1900rpm To 3500!!! — What I like about this car is the tite drive, when I turn corners it goes were I want. I also apreciate the performance of the car, even if it only 90hp I can easily drive 200km/h, overall this car is really fun to drive and it's cheap on fuel, I do about 1100km with 50 bucks :P

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun to drive, Cheap on fuel

Cons: none

Nice Car, Bad Quality — This was a GTI model - nicely equipped and great performance, but lots of issues with build quality (made in Brazil) that finally led me to replace with a Passat. This model generation was the best looking, best overall package, went downhill from there

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great looks, sporty, nicely equiped

Cons: Awful build quality

2001 Volkswagen Golf Iv 1.6l 105 Hp Highline — The most classy Golf ever! The newer Mk V and VI models are for sure good cars, however, they don't appeal to me nearly as much as the Mk IV. This was my first car ever, and was a very pleasant car to own. I actually miss it quite a bit, it would make a sweet "No. 2-car" next to my Volvo V70... ;-)

Pros: Looks, build quality, economy, charm

Cons: I bought it as a second-hand car, and would probably have upgraded the stereo if bought brand new

Buy If U Can Afford Repairs — fun to drive, good torque and hp. very good handling. not that gas consuming. interior very roomy for a hatch. maintenance is expensive when major parts brake. interior has couple of defaults, no car is perfect, but this one was the most fun i had of all.

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

Pros: turbo =D

Cons: XP on repairs

Very Good Value For Money - Not Fastest Hot-hatch, But Excellent All Rounder — The 1.8t was a fairly quick car in 150bhp form - although this power could be easily re-mapped to over 200bhp for around £300.00. Braking was amazing, but handling in general could have been more sports orientated, however - it was such a good all rounder and a totally capable motorway cruiser. Earlier examples had Recaro interiors which are a really nice touch, there are certain common weak areas of the car such as coilpacks/window regulators, but nothing you cannot sort out with a bit of DIY. Sold mine with over 100k miles and it was still driving like a new car. regularly got over 35mpg

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Discreet classy sports hatchback that's practical and well built

Cons: Dont avoid buying a looked after example

Review Volkswagen Golf Iv 2.3 V5 —

Performance- Expected more out of a 2.3 liter engine. Although the automatic gearbox ruins a lot!!! It's still faster than the average car though... Build quality- It is supposed to be a very reliable car, but the weather here ruins a lot of the plastics and it's hard to find a propper garage that does the right job. The engine is bullit proof and never let me at the side of the road. Appearance-People complain that it's just a Golf, it's not flashy, but definately not ugly! The Golf IV is the most beautiful Golf Volkswagen ever produced in my eyes. Besides that, you can consider this car as "cool" since teenagers love it as a "hot hatch"... which it is.... Cost of ownership- If you can just afford the car because you have the money to buy one, leave it alone... Get a Japanese hatchback or something... Fuel consumption is VERY high for such a car with an average of 9 km/l. Also the cost of insurance is high, because my car is considered to be a "sportscar" with the insurance companies. Then the maintenance, simple service is cheap of course. But if something breaks and you need new parts??? Jackpot!!! Fun Factor- With a 2.3l 5-cylinder engine, you will adore this engine if you know something about cars. You get the beautiful soundtrack of a 5-cylinder engine and not a standard 4-cylinder sound like most Golfs will have. However, I always see this car as a GT car, not soo much a "hot hatch" like a GTI or R32. It has soft suspension, an automatic gearbox and is made for comfort. But put your foot down, and it can blow your head off!!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great car, make sure you can afford it and ignore the ones with the automatic gearboxes

Cons: High fuel consumption, high insurance cost and expensive parts
