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.

Single person's dream

Vehicle: 1999 Volkswagen Golf

Overall the 1999 VW golf is a fantastic car. It has the handling of a go-kart, fuel economy like a moped, and acceleration like a puma. The TDI engine is exceptional with its milage and reliability. In burning biodiesel, I expect to reach 300,000 miles without any major issues, if the body lasts that long (salty Maine air, roads).




First diesel

Vehicle: 1999 Volkswagen Golf

This was my first new VW and it has turned out to be one of my best cars. I have had to educate myself about the mechanicals of the vehicle because the dealer network is useless but this has made the ownership experience quite fun. I don't mind getting my hands dirty and the aftermarket segment supports these vehicles beautifully.




Love the car, not the

Vehicle: 1999 Volkswagen Golf

I love driving this car and now that I am looking for another car, nothing near the price has as smooth a ride. Great pep for 45 MPH. But, I've had elecitrical problems and maintence issues on the turbo, which were expensive.
