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


I test drove my brother's 2001 VW golf and loved it and decided to get a 2002 gls golf. Within the first year of having it i have had a lot of minor probs: all 4 doors completely freeze shut if there is freezing rain/snow, making me climb through the trunk and do power kicks to open them (and i am no weakling either), i had a faulty air intake boot clamp causing my car to completly stop running at rush hour on a highway exit ramp, an ABS recall, and lots of extra noises.

Best Features

very stylish looking exterior and interior. you get a lot of options for the money. good gas milage.

Worst Features

cheaply made w/ a lot of minor problems that waste your time by frequent visits to the dealer/mechanic. place the cup holders in a better place and place the radio where you can keep your eyes on the road.
