Great vehicle, but with an automatic transmission it's a gas hog. My average highway mileage is only 28.8 MPG. I've had a few tanks in the low 30's MPG. The city mileage is around 20 MPG. I've had it checked by a garage twice and they didn't find anything wrong. Had it into a VW dealer once for another problem and the representative didn't think that 28.8 MPG for highway mileage for an automatic was out of line.

You must be a true volkswagen lover to
appreciate the smooth ride, great
mileage, "too cool" exterior, and ample
space this car provides! This was my
1st car and I still love it like as if
I just brought it yesterday. It has
never been in the shop for repairs!
With the exception of a loose knob to
adjust the passenger seat - my Golf is
still delivering outstanding
reliability and quality service.

This car is awful. It's been in the shop
constantly for so many problems I can't even
remember them all. Some problems I just
leave rather than fix because I'm tired of
putting money into this car. Don't buy
Volkswagen offers two generations of the Golf for sale in 1999. The third-generation Golf has been around since 1993, and it is a carryover for 1999. VW deletes the K2 model from the lineup and adds content to the upscale Wolfsburg, including cruise control, power windows (with one-touch operation) and heated power mirrors. Later in the model year, the company introduces a completely redesigned Golf with an improved version of the base inline four and an available turbodiesel four, which delivers up to 49 mpg on the highway. If you can hold out for a 2000 model, VW will offer a 150-hp 1.8-liter turbo for four-door hatchbacks.
