Vw Golf Iv — I love it's design very much. The front and back lights, curves, doors, everything... The only problem is it lacks the newer features such as DSG, rain and light sensors, etc. But I miss driving my car, if I don't drive it for 3 or 4 days.

Pros: Design, Performance

Cons: Fuel Consumption

Car — Fun, reliable and with today's economy, affordable. This is my seventh Volkswagen and I still love them. My Golf is spotless and I want to keep it that way. Will be doing branches and pipe soon as well as gas flowing and balancing. Should be a lot more fun then.

Pros: Reliable and affordable

Cons: 1.4

Golf 2.0 Gtd — Whilst this is a company car and actually a 2.0ltr GTD I did have a hand in chosing it. The handling its great, it has 17" rims and sticks to anything. Had some problems with the engine in the first year which VW sorted. Interior is a bit bland, the new GTD has full leather as standard, when I got mine it was an extra and expensive! Overall a very nice car.

Pros: Good Handling, Drives well

Cons: Engine issues in the early years

Vw Golf Variant Iv — Now mounted with 18" rims, it kindda compensates for the estate construction which IMO makes the IV-series look somehow obsolete... But those 18" rims,,, mmm... Just need a wee lowering on that wheel suspension someday..

Pros: Love the interior, very comfortable, ok torque (gas/diesel), good resale ops

Cons: NOT a sportscar! In every (no) way!, it's an estate car which influences the design...

Speedy! — I had a Jeep Wrangler before this, so going from Off-roading to No-roading was kind of heartbreaking. But, it is a speedy car, it gets great gas mileage and it is a Turbo Diesel.

Pros: Gas Mileage.

Cons: No off-roading

Most Fun To Drive, Reliable And Great Looking Car — Bottom line is the Germans have the best engineering, handling and overall reputation for great cars. You will love the easy to load hatchback trunk and the quick response rack and pinion steering. Its sporting looking yet econimical and a great factory warranty included

Pros: Refinement  
+ Performance  
+ Euro-style handling  
+ Resale value  
+ Construction quality  

Cons: Seat adjustments  
- Difficult entry and exit in two-door model

Goes From A To B — nice car, but needs power! 115hp is just not enough for this car. specially not if you have a friend or 2 with you. then it's really slow in accelleration.

Pros: 6 gears

Cons: FWD

Diesel - Run Forever — Was the SE model with 1.9 TDI 105 PS engine, plenty of torque and moved quite well. It had the luxury pack on it - auto dim rear view mirror and something else, bought off Avis when it was 3 months old with 12'000 miles on the clock! never had a problem with it up to the day i got rid off it with 40'000 mile on the clock in April 07.

Pros: Diesel, torque, comfort, excellent build quality

Cons: 5 doors
