Good car but a litte expensive.

1997 Volkswagen Golf GL 4dr Hatchback
I've owned this car for about 2 years
now.It is fun to drive but much needs
to be inproved.The interior was laid
out well, all except for the useless
cup holders in the center console and
exccesive road noise.
Under powered with only average gas
mileage.The best highway mileage I got
was 30 mpg with an average of 28, city
is a little above 20.Not good for a
Power windows should have been standard
on all models.Haveing a four door and
no pw really sucks.
Last but not least, beware of repair

you think VW, not cheap to maintain,
VW/Audi parts.Also affects insurance
Sporty driving characteristics and
decent ride. Versitility of hatch.
Cup holders with use or none at all.
Something needs to be done with the
2.0L 8 valve motor.
Better sound dampening or the interior
and standard power windows.
