2002 Volkswagen Golf Overview

In an effort to meet head-on lingering complaints about the build quality of its venerable Golf models, Volkswagen effectively doubled the length of its bumper-to-bumper warranty, from two years/24,000 miles to four years/50,000 miles.

Plus, the base Golf GL trim package was finally available in both two- and four-door sedan versions. GL buyers could choose from two engine options: either the base 115-hp, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder gas engine or the 90-hp, 1.9-liter diesel engine with the TDI (turbo direct injection) feature. A five-speed manual overdrive transmission was standard. A four-speed automatic was available as an option.

A higher-end GLS trim package was also available, with the same two engine options but with an expanded list of standard features. The Golf GL came with such features as air conditioning, anti-lock brakes, dual airbags (driver and passenger), tilt/telescoping steering, power door locks, an anti-theft alarm system, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo system. The GLS packages added a CD player and power windows, among other features. The GLS TDI also added traction control.

Drivers appreciated the Golf's value, handling, safety features, power, and sportiness. However, some drivers noted that the car still had quality-control issues requiring expensive repairs. The transmission and electrical system were noted by some drivers as being particularly troublesome. Perhaps that extended warranty wasn't such a bad idea after all.
