2002 Volkswagen Golf GLS TDIReview

Good Car, But Lot Of Flaws Over The Years — The Golf is a good car, but a bit of a grey mouse. You see so many of them it doesn't feel special to drive one. Over the years I had a lot of problems with it, specifically with the clutch, the exhaust and electric components like switches and the sat nav system.

Pros: Quick and easy to handle. Good view to the back.

Cons: Problematic, poor support from VW dealers.

2002 Volkswagen Golf GLS 2.0Review

It Was Ok Transport — Needed a car after selling the Bora, and this was on the yard. Meant to be a short-term thing but ended up having it over a year. After the "plush" of the Bora, this was a bit rough - a poverty pack 5spd manual! But it got me around.

Pros: It was cheap to run.

Cons: Light beige interior with kids - very bad move.
