Vehicle2002 Volkswagen Golf GLS 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewJust like all of the other reviews here on Edmunds - drives and looks great with poor build quality and reliability (2002 model). In two years I have had it to the shop 7 times, including 1 tow. Lots of rattles from the dash and vents, broken radio and window motor, frozen doors (it snows/rains in Germany, right?), wouldn’t shift out of park so I needed a tow to the dealer and now I have noticed the burning oil at 27K (smells like a 2-cycle motor the first 10 sec after starting in the cold). Average 24mpg with 70% highway driving.
Best FeaturesLarge rear space with seats folded down, roof rack mounts under the rain gutters, looks and drive.
Worst FeaturesTrips to the dealer every 2-3 months for repairs are getting old and waste time. Will keep the car until warranty is up and buy an Acura, Infiniti or Lexus next.
