Check — This car is the most sufficient i know. Power is emaculate. Consumption up there in its class. The look is awsome and retrow. For the price and the maintenance on it there is not alot to say than "you'll be suprised"

Pros: Alot

Cons: little

Guilty Pleasure No 103: Mk 4 Golf Gti 1.8t —

Thanks to my autophile father I was pretty much born with petrol coarsing through my veins and grew up lusting after italian exotica and french ingenuity. So when it came to fulfilling my motoring destiny by parting with the hard earned, I fully expected to return home with a sonorous and stylish Alfa or a quirky old Citroen. How then did I become the owner of a Volkswagen Golf? And not even the iconic mk1, desirable mk2 or rejuvenated mk5, nope the stodgy if solid mk4. The actual reasons for this decision are somewhat dull and practical and as it happens I'm planning to swap it for aforementioned alfa in the next few months. But saying goodbye to the Golf won't be as easy as you may think. It may be staid, evolutionary and a little bit dull, but even to a petrolhead like me there has been a guilty pleasure about owning this car. Mine is a 1.8T GTI which helps the case enormously. The engine must be the pick of the mk4 bunch; it is silken smooth and pulls like a train, with lovely turbo torque from 2000rpm and some good old fashioned top end go as the 20 valves come on song around 4000rpm. The GTI also has significantly firmer springing and weightier steering than your boggo 1.6. Neither of these is going to mask the inherent shortcomings of the mk4 chassis, and on your favourite piece of twisty road it feels safe and competent rather than fun and involving. But in 90% of real world driving this is irrelevant. What is relevent, is where you are sitting and what you've got and here the Golf excels. It is beautifully built (far nicer than the mk5) and in GTI trim very well equipped - my favourite feature being the superb recaro seats which are comfortable and supportive. And then there's all the other stuff about owning a Golf, like good reliability and strong resale values which shouldn't get you excited but when it's your own money does. So there you go, i've said it, I'm glad to own a mk4 Golf and frankly would recommend it to anyone. Now where did I put that Alfa brochure....

Pros: Quick, smooth and powerful engine, beautifully built, great ownership proposition

Cons: Competent but uninvolving handling & steering, staid and unimaginative design

Good Motor — only problem seems to be the oxygen sensors. other than that love it. performance is not the best but it has plenty of toys. was a little expensive but worth the few extra pounds. i would like to buy the higher powered model as my next motor. recommend to anyone

Pros: comfort, build quality

Cons: emission problems

Vw Golf For Life — to total my words, vw golf is the best hot hatch in the all world, i mean you get from it what you want from any hatch bac car and more: cool appereance, powerfull engine, great handling and adrinalen pump when you step on it ( super burnouts). its prices are good in compare with the other cars from the same level and the dealer is good but a littel costy. i will always drive vw golf inthe future but it will be a GTI or a R32.

Pros: looks good, great performance, solid and fun to drive.

Cons: a littel bit expensive to maintaine and some exesories does not fit.

51 Gt Tdi — 51 plate Golf GT TDI - the quick economic diesil monster. Wheel in 4 corners means this car drives like a dream, acceleration pushes you back in the seat and you can chuck this baby about without worrying if you'll end up in a field. Diesel powered means it's super efficient too - Bounus!!

Pros: VW build quality and brilliant performance.

Cons: give me time, i'll think of something!!

Vw Mk4 1.4l 16v — I bought this car in 2005 with 107,000km (105,000 on the papers) on the clock. It is an incredible looking car in good condition, but the mechanical relibility is pathetic! I've driven the car 40,000km since I bought it and it breaks down more often then I care to recall. I've spent more money fixing than what a trade-in value is worth so I'm stuck with it. The service from VW was also a reason I'll never buy another VW ever again.

Pros: Great looking car!

Cons: Mechanical failures every other day.

Its Worth It — its an amazing car, and a wonderful drive. not the best pick up but u feel the kick once u hit 120kmph n it goes all the way to 260, that shows on the meter. perfect handling, minimum vibration, great suspensions, n the millage is an icing on the cake. a fun car to drive, specially when u wanna corner at crazy speeds ;) but the only drawback is it really hurts ur butt in various ways when u need to take it to the shop, german afterall ... but its worth it

Pros: looks, performance, handling, fuel economy

Cons: expensive to maintain, pick up

01' Vw Golf Tdi — My girlfriend has this car and I must say that it is much more enjoyable than I thought it would be. I think it has some cool factor just for being a diesel and it is pretty peppy. They did have an issue with the intake manifold becoming restricted which made the car seem like it had transmission issues but the problem was easily resolved.

Pros: great turning radius

Cons: VW interrior

2001 Vw Golf — Despite the electrical misfits of this VW year (2001) model, I love my car and will drive it to the ground! I would buy another VW, as this is my second one already. It's affordable, it's gas efficient, and it's comfortable. Did I mention it's fun to drive, too? Especially if it's a manual, like mine is.

Pros: nice looks, great gas mileage, strong build

Cons: electrical misfirings - lots of them

Mk4 Vw Golf Gt Tdi — Still have this car; It's done c200k miles and has never let me or the family down. Looks old now, but you still see millions on the road - so that say's quite a bit about it. Not the most exciting thing I have owned, I must admit, but a Swiss army knife of cars.

Pros: Reliability, economical,  build quality, flexibilty, space.

Cons: dull to drive and VERY wobbly around corners!
