Great overall car!
By Wrldleadck5 on
1996 Volkswagen Golf GL 4dr Hatchback
Bought it w/ 120k on it and now has 202k.. Very reliable car, fun to drive and quick enough for me. Only had to replace the normal wear/tear parts.. Struts, rotors, plugs/wires, ext.. Gets excellent gas mileage 26-28 city and 28-34 highway. Hoping it will last me another 100k which it's on the right track for.. Keep up w/ your oil changes and the engine should last you forever.
Excellent gas mileage, fun to drive on the windy roads and very reliabe.
Only suggestion is to keep up w/ the maintenance and you should have no major problems.
