1999 Volkswagen Golf Wolfsburg 4dr Hatchback


Review

We have had this car going on three years now and the problems seem to have leveled off. I have never seen a car with so many electrical failures and they keep happening, all of the power windows, power locks, brake light assemblies, window wipers selector switch just about any electrical assembly has failed in this car and when I tell VW about the problems they say "well it is 5 years old" I had a 16 year old accord with none of these problems. I have noticed now that people have similar problems with even the new ones. I have to say we are very disappointed and would not recommend buying one


Best Features

I love the style. It has a nice red color, too. It has great seats, a nice dash, and the liftback is great. The Wolfsburg Edition is loaded with nice features. It has good viability and seat position. Its fit and finish is very good.


Worst Features

The electrical components are garbage. They really have to work on this car to ever have me as a return customer. Its gas mileage for a 4 cylinder is not good, 35 mpg, but i hear the new ones are better.

1999 Volkswagen Golf Wolfsburg 4dr Hatchback


Review

This car has got it all. The Wolfsburg
Edition represents the very last batch
of "old" Golfs. By the time it was made
VW got the art and science of making the
winning hatchback down-pat. Nothing
breaks it - ever. It runs like a Swiss
clock. On top of its reliability, the
Wolfsburg Edition boasts *all* the
gadgets you may ever want - a 6-disc CD
changer, moon roof, everything that
could be power is power, the steering
wheel, the shift knob and the boot are
wrapped in leather, etc.


Best Features

The car is so compact, that at times you can park it *between* two parked vehicles where no one else would fit. GREAT for cities - e.g., New York, Boston, etc. Also, got a great sound system and NEVER BREAKS.


Worst Features

Make more!

Review

I've owned the car for four years, and
while it did have some initial quality
issues (paneling falling off,
malfunctioning instrument cluster) it
has remained a fairly reliable car.
The Wolfsburg is packed with all the
gadgets (sunroof, power everything, CD
changer, etc.) and I've had only one
problem with these - that being a rear
window that would stick. Overall, I
would say that this car has been worth
what I paid for it. Nothing more.
Fortunately, and for whatever reason,
they have a good resale value.


Best Features

Cruise, A/C, power windows


Worst Features

Better quality, better styling
