1997 Volkswagen Golf GL 4dr Hatchback
Review
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 compact car. 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 costs.Think expensive German car when you think VW, not cheap to maintain, VW/Audi parts.Also affects insurance premiums.
Favorite Features
Sporty driving characteristics and decent ride. Versitility of hatch.
Suggested Improvements
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.
