2002 Volkswagen Golf GL 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I bought this VW for quality German engineering. My mistake. It had chronic (monsoon) radio/cd problems which are expensive to repair. Front door windows fell out but were covered by mfr recall. Transmission went out twice (112,000 and 128,000 miles). It cost $4500 and VW America would not help with either transmission. Even the wheel logos are poorly installed and fall out at $40 each. Cup holders completely block access to stereo while in use. Black velour seats tend to hold lots of lint and dirt. Looking forward to selling this car and buying a Japanese or American car.

Best Features

Good looking car.

Worst Features

VW America should provide better quality control and stand behind their product better. Radio/cd player goes out frequently. Automatic transmission is very unreliable and expensive.
