2003 Volkswagen Golf GL 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
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 (downshifts...). 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.
Favorite Features
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
Suggested Improvements
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 perfect.
