1997 Volkswagen Golf GL 4dr Hatchback

Review

Bought new 1996. Issues: transmission ground wire, dash replaced w/in 1st month. Went through 3 trans due to rupture mixing coolant/tranny fluid. Battery power surge, 3rd set of plug wires, ignition coil arching ceased engine while driving. Think I got it all fixed now.

Favorite Features

Handles well. Hatchback rules. Good pickup, easy to manuever, great for parking downtown, hauled 42 bags of mulch, 15ft ladder, tandem bike, weber gold gas grill (in box) among other things.

Suggested Improvements

Power windows would have been nice. 4 wheel disks as well. Better gas mileage. Better QC coming off the line. VW still has work to do on electrical issues.
