2005 Volkswagen Golf GLS 2.0Review

Same As Jetta - Loved It! — Sadly, there was not enough boot space in the Golf for all the crap I need to cart around with two kids, so it was a sad goodbye to the Golf.

Pros: Went fast.

Cons: Terrible, terrible, turbo lag.

2005 Volkswagen Golf GLS 1.9 TDiReview

The Katmobile — I bloody loved that car. It took me to many places I had never been before. Like Northampton.

Pros: Stuck to the corners.  Fast enough.

Cons: Perhaps too fast, on reflection.  Three blown turbos, no ashtray (cost £10 extra, bugger that) and a car full of water if you opened the window in heavy rain.  Ate oil like I eat poppadums.
