Most unreliable car I have ever owned.
This list of problems is endless. Mass
Air Flow sensor, headlights, dashboard
lights, glove box..twice (and do you
think that VW has even reconized this
problem?), ABS, Hydraulic brake unit,
radio and on and on and on. Thank
goodness that I have roll down
windows...I see that many people have
had problems with their power windows.

I have put over 128 thousand miles on my Golf
Gl TDI. After an initial warranty issue with the
rear brake pads failing twice (fixed free) I have
done nothing other than routine maintenance.
The car is quick, responsive and agile very
reliable, starts in sub zero weather no
problems and i can drive from chicago to
Houston texas on 2 tanks of diesel averaging

This vehicle performed very well after
my purchase. But after maintaining
this car it diminished in performance
to the point where problems could not
be solved. I believe it is a good
vehicle but being a diesel may be its
downfall. If you buy one, BE CERTAIN
there is a certified mechanic that can
service it. My performance rating
For 2000, the big news is the availability of the 150-horsepower 1.8T engine on the Golf GLS. In addition, the Golf receives several equipment updates, including child-seat anchor points, sun visor extenders, a glare-reducing shade band on the windshield, a brake wear indicator light in the instrument cluster, a theft-repelling engine immobilizer and a tether for the fuel cap. All Golfs are now eligible for dealer-installed in-dash CD player; a dealer-installed CD changer is also available. Finally, GLS buyers can opt for a premium Monsoon sound system in lieu of the standard eight-speaker system.

I have a 2000 vw golf and I noticed that after my second oil change there was a creamy thick residue under the oil cap. From previous experience I thought this was cause for concern. I previously ow...
