2005 Volkswagen Golf GLS 1.9 TDiReview

Solid Golf Gives A Kick — Very solid feel, with doors that sounds like they were taken off a vault. Performance and economy is sound - I average 55mpg on regular runs and can get 65mpg on motorways. As well as being safe, it can also motor and when the turbo kicks in, you're away at a good pace.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Solid, Safe, Quick, Cheap to run

Cons: Maybe a bit heavy

Vw Golf Gt Tdi — This was my next car, beauty on wheels. The power behind this beauty was unbelieveably fast. Handling was good and the appearance was sporty...with a few mods here and there. I can tell u that i've had a few too many races in this car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast and powerful

Cons: n/a

Good, Sensible Every Day Transport. — Does exactly what it says on the tin... Starts, stops, not too bad to drive and is reasonably classless - a Golf! It's never going to set your hair on fire, but then when the kids drop muddy boots on the back it's OK and it just keeps on going.

Pros: 50+ mpg

Cons: None

2005 Golf 1.6 Fsi Sport — Average acceleration but smooth and quiet when up to speed. Very fluid steering with excellent composure and roadholding. Superb build quality with functional hard wearing interior. Excellent fuel economy and maintenenace costs OK but VW dealers know how to charge! Good fun to drive and easy to live with.

Pros: A great car for the real world

Cons: No real downsides

Looove Her - Decided To Keep Her And Maintain Even After She's Paid For :) —

Test drove the car; when the turbo kicked in in second-gear and we felt the car propel, we were pretty much sold. Love the fuel efficiency of the diesel; dunno whether we'll ever go back to petrol again. I was initially a tad intimidated by the sound of a diesel engine, but I've learned to love the low manly hum it makes ;) Iro Build Quality, I've said it before and I'll say it again - Golf V does not quite compare to the build quality of the Mark 4 - there was a solidity and feeling of being safely encapsulated that I experienced with the Golf IV that I haven't quite felt with the Mark 5 (the 5 is faster and sportier though - you feel the speed and the road when you pedal to the metal). Appearance - no doubt bout it, the 5 is a beaut. We have her in black with a sunroof and customized plates (interior, she has black heated leather seats, dual-zone climate control and a 6CD shuttle in the armrest console) so she offers everything we could ever dream of! Maintenance - took her with the extended warranty option, so it really won't be a trainsmash for some time to come. Fun Factor - oh, she's a hell of a lot of fun for someone who LOVES driving - I've set her auto audio volume increase thingie to medium so the music gets louder as you increase speed - makes fast driving one hell of a rush ;) Last but not least; MOMMY FACTOR: Love the Isofix childseat locks, huge boot for the pram and other kiddie paraphernalia and she has a 5 star NCAP rating which made her a safe choice as our family car - therefore a good allrounder.

Pros: Safety, speed and luxury

Cons: If you dislike sportier cars

I Own A Golf, Just Like The Rest Of The World. — It's a golf so you can't complain about the way it looks, very inoffensive. I've actually have the 2.0 SDI but that wasn't in the trim list, it's only got the models that were released in the states. Performance is murder - 0-60 takes nearly 20 seconds but cruises happily at 80 on the motorway. Handling is really really good, especially for such a heavy car. Cost of running is excellent too, but I got a special deal ;) ;)

Pros: Looks good, handles well. 62mpg!

Cons: Slow acceleration.

Golf Mk5's Are The Future — This has to be the best hatch back on the market. The build is solid, cheap to run, performance is not at all bad and the drive is comfy. Its stunning looking as standard but as you can see when you do a bit of moddin they can look fabulous.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing

Volkswagen Golf Gti — Really Great Car with amazing engine, 200 BHP. I will proudly recomend the sport seats, the real GTI seats!!! I've styled the car in two ways, changed the rims from 17" up to 19", really good german ones. MAM (Nuvo 7).... The driving experience was great and will ALWAYS recomend VW GTI!

Pros: The engine, the sportseats and the brilliant driving experience

Cons: Stiff Suspensions
