Vehicle

1998 Volkswagen Golf GL 4dr Hatchback

Review

Cons: Rear CD-changer won't release at 20k, automatic trans that won't shift up on a warm day at 30k, Door trim falling off at 35k, rattle in dash at 50k, oil leak at 55k with fumes into pass compartment. Pros: Performance, mpg, interior room especially for cargo hauling, the wonderful mechanically adjustable drivers seat, ride and looks (except for the headlight bezels, which looked outdated even in 98).

Best Features

Cheap exterior door trim that won't stay on (eye-roll-here).

Worst Features

V styling on new VWs suck, and for reliability we're going back to Toyota.
