2000 Volkswagen Golf GL 2dr Hatchback

Review

This is my 4rth VW. The new Golf is by far superior. But with VW you are either lucky or poor. More often than not, the latter. While I love many things about the Golf, this will be my last VW. In 1st year - 5spd needed to be completely replaced due to a mftr defect in the 5th gear. Had to battle VW 6 mths with dangerous tranny (wouldn't go into 1st+5th gears -I had to start in 2nd!). Many other problems during the 60000 miles so far. Fun to drive but at what price. Love car but hate reliability. I had it shipped directly from Germany hoping it would prove more reliable than my previous VWs. Some who have been luckier than I, but more who swear they will never buy VWs again.

Best Features

Interior ergonomics & quality materials. Fun to drive, comfortable. Intelligent design features. Good handling.

Worst Features

Reliability. Warranty should be better than the competition so VW can win back some of its previous owners.
