1999 Volkswagen Golf GL 4dr Hatchback


Very happy with my VW Golf after nearly four years. It's my first new car after college, and for the money it's been an excellent vehicle. I've had one or two issues, but the warranty or VW has helped me nearly every time. The only bad stuff happened when I took it somewhere else when it should've gone back to the dealer. I don't miss having power windows or four doors, as the standard features more than make up for that. Some people must have bad luck, because I've never had a problem so bad that I wanted to get rid of it. In fact, my wife's Camry is up next year, and we're already scouting which VW is going to replace it! VW has a fan for life in me.

Best Features

Sporty, inexpensive, good handling and great gas mileage. Great first car or college car. Full sized spare is fantastic. People scoff at how much I can carry in the hatchback until I put the seats down; it makes a beliver out of them too.

Worst Features

I have to gripe about cupholders too, but Europeans don't seem to require the mammoth amount of liquids Americans always have in the car, so I doubt they're going to change it. But if they make the 6 disc changer standard, I'll try to forget the cupholders...
