2001 Volkswagen Golf GLS 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

My wife lovesthe VW Golf, which is good because I just sort of like it. It's the perfect size for her and she loves the way it drives, but I wish that we had gotten the turbo. Some things seem very weak, even fragile, like the door handles and cup holders. The important things though are solid, like the steering and brakes.

Favorite Features

Monsoon sound system is great.

Suggested Improvements

I hate the stupid door locks. The back doors and hatch lock automatically when you close them, then you have to dig out the keys or schlep all the way back to the front door to hit the button. I also wish that I could disable the auto-lock at 10 mph.
