A So-So Car
By Henry on
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.
Good gas mileage, reliability, spacious trunk (can fit a bike!), excellent visibility.
A glove box (as mentioned by others), powered windows, better seats.
