Got this for my first car. I've wanted one for a very long time, and I bought it with 95,600 miles and a clean service history record. Not a problem since, just regular maintenance. Drives like a little sports car, and the trunk is huge for a car this size. I love how light and agile it is. It might be slow, but it's more fun to drive slow cars fast than fast cars slow! I would definitely recommend this to anyone, especially since it comes in two- or four-door models. Without a doubt, one of the most well-made cars out there. NICE JOB VW!

My Golf 2.0 (2004) Automatic 2 Dr. Hatchback is the best little car I have every owned.
I bought the car with only 3000 miles on it--it now has 36,000 and still purrs.
It rides clean and very quiet--the interior is pretty--the exterior sporty.
NOTHING HAS EVER GONE WRONG WITH MY LITTLE BABY GOLF.
I put the gas mileage at around 38 MPG/on HWY-little less in city (I don't do city though)
The only item that needed to be replaced from 3000-36,000 miles was my battery because I drive the car from the Pacific Northwest to Arizona at least 3-4 times a year. In AZ the battery gets sucked dry fast in the heat and humidity.
Only other car that compares to the Golf was my Honda Odyssey.
Like the Jetta and New Beetle, the Golf gets a revised and more powerful version of the 1.9-liter TDI engine. A Monsoon stereo is now standard on the GLS model and all Golfs get a new fuel cap warning light and seatbelt reminder.
