    My 2003 Golf 2.0 — Drives nice and smooth. The engine isn't noisy for a 2.0. On a full tank of gas (approx. 55 liters) I'm able to approximatly 500 kilometers or more with both highway and city driving. I've only had to change the Oxigen sensor and the engine coolant resevoir (because of a faulty switch that was built into it). Other than that I do my regular maintenance at VW when needed and try to use original parts when able to and use symthetic oil when I do my oil and filter changes.

    Pros: I liked the Diesel engines alot!

    Cons: I wish that I had the GTI or R32!

    Golf — it is just a great and practical car. Fast and easy to use, fit five people and it looks like a great car. The fun factor is that people think it is a normal 1,4 golf and not so fast but then it is a 2,0 and faster than they would expect.

    Pros: great

    Cons: popular with thiefs

    Volkswagen — I love my car!! I got it in Jan this year from Robinsons and now want another one. It needs to be quicker though so I think I am going to get a GTI next. I hope to get another Golf next year but will look after this one until then.

    Pros: Nice and shiny

    Cons: Needs to be quicker

    Vw Golf Tdi Match — Quick, reliable and economical. Looks more attractive with alloys than standard steels with trims. Back seats fold to provide very good carrying space. Good size boot. It's bright red so looks quite sporty. Prefer a VR6 or GTi but fuel is too expensive too waste! Overall a great little car - definitely worth a look if you want VW engineering coupled with fuel economy.

    Pros: Fuel economy, stability, handling.

    Cons: Slightly hard ride

    One Sexy Car. — This is a great car, I absolutly love it. It accellerates great for a 2.0 liter, and handles as well as any car I've driven. As far as looks, you really can't beat the classic golf body, and the silver paint with black and gray interior is gorgeous. Easy on gas, and fun as hell to drive this car will last you forever. It is also really easy to modify, for any grease monkeys out there.

    Pros: Handles great, looks great, runs great, awesome gas mileage.

    Cons: Doesn't have a lot of power in 4th-5th gear.

    2003 Vw Golf — It's been a good little hatch so far. Build quality is easily the best of its class, particularly for the year I looked. Extremely stable on the highway as you'd expect from a German car. Engine is weak about 5000rpm and sounds like a blender but has good midrange torque in any gear. Interior is surprisingly practical given the small size. Manual transmission much better than the automatic but shifter is a bit sloppy. Steering is pretty good, suspension could be firmed up, brakes are good.

    Pros: build quality, fuel economy, reliability, highway manners, midrange grunt, steering

    Cons: slow, could use more top-end, shifter a little clunky, suspension too soft

    Ok Car, But Way To Expensive To Customize — the car is great and has a lot of potential, but the parts for this german built car are astronomically more expensive than honda parts. overall the acceleration is ok, it only has 115 hp. the breaking is good and its a very light break petal. and it handles like a go cart, even more so if you lover it with stiffer shocks.

    Pros: looks, reliability, 35 mpg, handling

    Cons: hp, acceleration, price of parts
