It's my 3-d VW Golf at a row and may
be the last. I bought it slightly
used, just because I want to have
German assembled Golf. And what I find
out - each new Golf generation
increasing driving fun and loosing
So far it's a first time when I'm
considering to buy another
car but not Golf5.
Handelling on a road. More standard
features than I need to have. Perfect
VW must work on quality to save
customers , who's changing one Golf to
a New Golf.
This car, even with it's not so
impressive specs (115hp and not an
amazing amount of torque) is quite
amazing to drive. I have the 5 speed
manual, and I can tell you, it's
sportive if you drive it right
The build quality is excellent, all
comes standard, it's near perfection.
I have read the reviews on this site,
and most people say it's not powerful
enough, but most (editor and users)
have an auto box. What in God's name
do you expect from that...
Take a spin in a 5speed manual and you
will realize the hidden potential.
Amazing performences (compared with
price and even other more expensive
cars (driving a Saab Aero appart from
the Golf); Well built; Amazing
handling; Predictable behaviour (front
wheel drive); Nice interior
Oil change schedualed at 2k miles;
less expensive services (for it's
price range); maybe a 2l with 4 or 5
valves (not 8 like now) and Variable
Valve Timing; 15 to 20 more hp to be
Luckily for me, my mother loved the
car just as much as i did and she was
willing to part with her money in
order for me to have a car. I've had
the car for about a month now and i
really enjoy it. It blows a civic and
any ford out of the water. The sound
system is immaculate, and the cabin is
much better designed than my fathers
civic and siblings fords. I look
foward to see how it will perform five
years from now. For the meantime
though, i'm gonna enjoy my vw.
Sound System, standard features,
heated seats. Interior lighting.
Gas mileage isn't much to brag about.
Maybe a wider stance. (my golf clubs
won't fit in the car unless i put part
of the back seat down)
I test drove the honda civic, mazda 6,
and a couple of other predomanatly
asian builtcars, and nothing against
those companys but the vw blows all of
them out of the water, can't compare
that german engineering.
my favorite features of this car is
the whole interior, the fun
drive.Another favorite feature about
this car are the endless possibilities
of enhancing the performance and
the only suggeested improvment i can
think of is that all models should
come standerd w/ arm rests
