Needed a glovebox. This was a problem when stopped at airport security when they wanted to check it...

1995 Volkswagen Golf Hatchback GL 4dr Hatchback


Review

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.


Favorite Features

The car has no glovebox. It's my favorite feature because it is an oddity, and I like oddities.


Suggested Improvements

A different car.

1995 Volkswagen Golf Hatchback Sport 2dr Hatchback


Review

Sold my Sport Golf yesterday. Was 8 years old, 102000 miles. Wanted 4 doors and ABS. Good looking car, some women would stop me on a parking lot and told me they like the car! Strong engine, powerful. Reliability was okay.


Favorite Features

Performance. Look. Fun to drive.


Suggested Improvements

No glove box. Breaking was not that good. Price of VW parts are outrageous!

Review

I bought this Golf with 52k miles in dec/o2, the car now has 69k miles on it 7months later, no problems @ all, I run synthetic oil in it... the car is very reliable... as a commuter, or weekend race project, add another $10,000 or so, & it's performance & style will be on par with will a bimmer my car has many of the aftermarket upgrade options avail... I added leather seats inside & a 7" in-dash dvd/tv system... exterior, upgraded all the lighting, lowered the car 2" & have a set of borbet wheels.. performance wise I have a Neuspeed Supercharger,50Hp shot Nitrous Express , aftermarket exhaust & many other goodies... wwww.vwvortex.com for more info on vw's
