  • What's New for 1995

    Volkswagen doubles the number of trim levels in the Golf line: During the year, four-door models are offered in entry-level base and City trim, as well as midlevel Celebration trim; the GL remains the best-equipped four-door Golf. In addition, a two-door Sport model joins the lineup; it has distinctive styling cues like seven-spoke alloy wheels and blacked-out taillights, along with standard sport seats and a power sunroof. All Golfs meet 1997 side-impact standards, and the front seatbelts are now height-adjustable and equipped with pre-tensioners. Daytime running lights are standard across the line.

Fun for a big guy

Vehicle: 1995 Volkswagen Golf GL 4dr Hatchback

I bought is car to run errands and bang around in saving my primary vehicle from those lovely people who ding your doors and scrap your bumpers. I wanted something very small but big enough for me to fit in. Well this car is small , fun to drive around the city and as for me ,a 6 foot guy, I got 6 inches of head room. It is like my own little street legal Go-Kart. Now I want a new one!!!




Think it is great

Vehicle: 1995 Volkswagen Golf GL 4dr Hatchback

I am the third owner of my 95 golf lll gl when I got the car it had 165,000 miles on it ... I have had it now 4 yrs and put about 80k miles on it myself. Yes I have had some Major repairs, but considering the shape I got it in, really was BASIC maintenance. It has its quarks, and in time you learn to "love" them ... Wish I was able to get the car new instead of being the third owner ... I would with out doubt recommend this model and yr to any one looking for a car - even used!

I just bought this car and I love it! I have always wanted a Golf, and now I have one. It needs LOTS of work, but it is still the best car I've ever had, including my Jetta.




A so-so car

Vehicle: 1995 Volkswagen Golf GL 4dr Hatchback

Bought it when it had 23K on the odometer. Major repairs: emission sytem (ouch!) and coolant leak. Other than these, just maintenance and minor fixes. Quite fun to drive, but not a powerful car. Still running on the original Bosch battery! Seats are awful...no lumbar support.




I love my golf iii!

At 164,000 miles, it's still going strong.




Attractive disaster

Vehicle: 1995 Volkswagen Golf GL 4dr Hatchback

I have more problems with my Golf than I could have imagined. In five years, the exhaust system has failed four times, the distributor twice, the radiator once, the wheel bearings once, the starter once, a crankshaft bearing seal twice in a month (and now possibly a third time), and the cylinder head coolant flange once. The front wheels tend to become misaligned very easily, wearing out tires like it's a Viper at a drag strip, and the rear wheels are out of alignment but are apparently not alignable. The tailgate rusted quickly, ruining the rear wiper motor and the plate lights, and the silly strips on the doors keep falling off. Fun to drive, though.
