I got my Golf as a graduation gift in 2007 and have been fairly happy with it. The guy that owned it before me put a clutch in it after learning how to drive a standard, has some sketchy rust spots (originally a VT car), the engine cuts out at odd moments (due to the MAF sensor), and the radio died a silent death when the battery was disconnected one day. Also, the drivers door lock cylinder comes out with the key and the vacuum-powered locking system doesn't work. Other than that and some routine maintenance, I love my VW and plan on buying a Mk. 4 ASAP. All my friends envy me my sporty little car and want either a Golf or a Jetta now.

I just re-purchased my 1994 Volkswagen Golf four years after selling it. It was such a good car and the only car I ever regret selling. I've covered 180,000 kms. in it and it has been solid, with no major problems to speak of. It still looks, rides, and runs like it did eleven years ago when I originally purchased it.

My 1994 Volkswagen Golf is expensive to fix, have has had lots of problems as its mileage increases. However, it is fun to drive, has very good pick up, and is faster than newer cars that I have driven.

Parts last a long time. Muffler
lasted from 94-2003, no expensive
repairs. Very fun to drive on the
Autobahn. Great gas mileage. Good to
take on road trips. This car was
built to last. American cars are
built to expire.

This is the 4th car I have ever owned
and I have to say I love it!!! I have
had a Subary, Chevy and Audi cars and
this one has to be the best (tied with
the Audi) It has been reliable from day
1. Fun to drive, fast and easy
parking. Gas millage is awesome! Does
not depreciate a lot. My wife's 2000
Hyundai depreciated faster than my VW.
Its a great car. Easy to Mod. Great
car for commuting!!!
The place where Wolfsburgs come from: Every few years, when VW is revamping the model line, they get rid of the old stuff in inventory by dropping it into a 'special' model. Back when the Golf was t...
