    Ok — its nice car but its not recommended in gulf area, it has too many electrical problems because it has 2 or 3 computers in the car .certainly u find warning light on the dashboard lighting and to reset it you will pay much money .

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: german car

    Cons: alot of electric problems

    A Fun Car For Every Day + Even Perfect For A Couple's Vacations — Doesn't consume much gas and works with the less expensive ones (88 and 91). It's a manual so it gives the driver more control and makes it even more fuel efficient Has all the options needed (sun roof, heated seats, CD player...) Robust as most VW's!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Small but very convenient with all that's needed

    Cons: could have a prettier design

    Buy It If You Have Extra Money And You Do Not Care About Spending It On Car — Nice car, really love it but it is a big headeach when opens her mouse for any break down or maintainance. It is perfect in case you are rich and ready to spend on maintainance and expensive spare parts.....go for Japaneese cars do not use complicated german once.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Power

    Cons: expensive maintainance and spares

    Looks Good Out Of Past And Current Golf Range. — Use it for everything. I've had it on a track and it handles great. It tows 2000lbs only because of the hitch. I've had one on issue with my sun visor not lighting up all the time. Its hard to clean ...

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Performance and economy.

    Cons: Awesome!

    Rocks. — Great acceleration and handling. Braking suffers a bit due to body mass causing lots of inertia. Its build is comparable to a Panzer tank, pure German style - undestructable. Its interior is feeling the wear and tear of every day use for over eight years. Average gas mileage and maintenance is a bit expensive compared to other cars of the same market level. It is always fun driving a golf!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Safety is not an optional with volkswagen.

    Cons: Avoid off-roading of any kind.  Kit is extremely low.

    Pros: it Looks

    My Golf — I love my car. I's stunning. The only down side is that I drive a 2.slow. Little pick up. It makes a lot of noise, the engine purrs...but it goes nowhere. I enjoy the gas mileage. I tend to get about 300+ a tank. I had to strip the sticky plastic off the interior. I couldn't handle it. I installed smoked tail lights by hella. My car is so fun to drive. And it SCREAMS "Sara" every time you see it!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It drives like a german car should!

    Cons: Cost of parts...and the engine size.
