1990 Volkswagen Golf GL 4dr Hatchback


Review

I have been driving this car for over a year. It has exceeded my expectations by ten fold. Also, it is very easy to customize it to just how you like it. Durability is superior to other newer cars today.


Best Features

The sunroof is pretty awesome and the throttle response.


Worst Features

The a.c. and heating is a little rough but it is well worth the sacrifice of a little comfort for the dependability.

1990 Volkswagen Golf GL 4dr Hatchback


Review

My first car. She was the car that
could. She could: go fast, drink no
gas, pull the people, move the dresser,
look good, park in any spot, feel racey.
She Couldn't: survive the snow :(
Alas my poor car died in the snow and I
sold her to a mechanic... going strong
now apparently...


Best Features

Free revving torquey little 4 banger. Decent automatic transmission (coming from a standard tranny lover that's something). Excellent road hold and highway manners. Sporty feel but calm collected looking exterior.


Worst Features

Radio. Dash electronics... what did all those little lights mean anyway? Power steering... was a little heavy for parking though my arms got bigger from driving her.

Review

Has performed very well throughout
it's life. Never any engine or
transmission problems. Body is in
excellent condition. New tires all
around 5/30/03. Transmission is five
speed stick shift.


Best Features

Cruise control. Hatch back configuration. Trunk space. Interior lighting system. Bright headlights.


Worst Features

Reverse gear "holdout" does not function properly. Would be repaired only if it became necessary to remove the transmission for other repairs.

Review

This car has been fairly reliable,
always fun to drive, with a solid
build and great design. This is a
fantastic vehicle for a student or
someone commuting.


Best Features

Good gas mileage, lots of room for passengers. Also lots of power and solid construction make it feel safer on the highway when compared to other compact cars.


Worst Features

Cant think of any. The gas gauge only worked for a few years - minor inconvenience.
