I have owned my 1995 Golf Sport since purchase in July 1995. It has been a fun car and it has always turned heads for styling esp in the flash red color. For a Volkswagon it has been remarkably reliable. Only non wear and tear repairs were a windshield water leak (easily fixed) and the muffler system had to be replaced after 5 years (ugh) Otherwise just brakes, tires and oil/ changes. currently 67k miles.
Fun to drive, looks cool, easy parking reliabity has been very good
