1997 Volkswagen Golf Trek 4dr Hatchback


Review

The Small things that have gone wrong have cost me a total of $15 because I fixed them my self. the timing belt is easy to get to and change and only cost $20 from Ovals motorsports. The drivers door lock broke at around90000 and cost $6 in parts and 1 hr on a saturday to fix the new part is much beefer and of better quality. Overall quality is equal to or better than toy or honda.


Favorite Features

everything great dependable engine and trans very good acceleration and good stopping. vertically adjustable drivers seat. allows vertically challenged people to see the road rather than the dash.


Suggested Improvements

cup holders need to be in a better location (they fixed that recently)

I have had my trek for over 3 years now and will keep it until VW fixes power windows in newer GTI's. The only real problem with car was dealership i bought it from (Dick Dean) Car drives like a dream, can haul my two large dogs nice with seats folded down. time. If I had the heated seats and the VR6 could keep car forever.


Favorite Features

not having power windows, moonroof, cupholders (they keep my wife from bringing bigs sodas in my car) when you drive you should DRIVE


Suggested Improvements

door locks have froze on car
