2003 Volkswagen Golf Hatchback GLS 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

After driving a Nissan Altima for 78,000 miles I wanted to find a car that would make my 3-hour commute more enjoyable. I tested Honda, Toyota, Nissan, and even a Vibe. all left me a little disappointed with their performance. After driving the Golf I was hooked. The car is faster and handles better than any of the other 4- cyl models I tested. The build quality is awesome and feels solid compared to the tin can feeling of the Japanese autos. I purchased a GLS w/ winter and Monsoon and have never been happier with a car. Before you buy that Honda… Try a VW.


Best Features

Power off the line, Short braking distance, tight steering, build quality, 4 year 50,000 mile warranty


Worst Features

Cup holders are my only complaint...

2003 Volkswagen Golf Hatchback GLS 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This is the best car for the money! Test-drive a VW, and then try the rest. You will find yourself under-whelmed by the JPN manufactures. The Golf is quick, handles like a dream, has awesome stopping power, a ton of safety features, and a high resale value. Not to mention its tall person friendly. If you’re over 6’1” you don’t need to buy the optional shoehorn to get in and out of the car. Before you buy another Honda or Toyota test-drive the Golf.


Best Features

Steering, power, comfort, styling, and safety. I had the car explained from the tires up. I highly recommend Devon Hill VW. Devon, PA. / Randal Boyet.


Worst Features

Cup holders...
