1990 Volkswagen Golf Hatchback 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.


Favorite Features

The sunroof is pretty awesome and the throttle response.


Suggested Improvements

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 Hatchback 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...


Favorite 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.


Suggested Improvements

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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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