1997 Volkswagen Golf K2 4dr Hatchback

Review

Got it new in 97, the car is running very well, 5 yrs, 133K miles...changed water pump at 80K under warranty, clutch and Oxygen sensors at 123K miles. Otherwise, given how hard I drive my VW it is very impressive how she's holding up. Amazing what regular scheduled maintenance does! If you need to drive 110MPH, this car will do it and feel stable...in the snow it is great. With the 5speed manual transmission it feels pretty zippy.

Favorite Features

The heated seats, the roof rack, and just how much stuff you can get in it when you fold the seats down.

Suggested Improvements

Every car a gremlin in the "build quality" department, for this VW it is wheel bearings they tend to go bad about everytime it is time to change the timing belt (50 to 60K miles)
