This Golf is solid-fun to drive, and
easy to handle. There are areas in
which there could be improvement. The
first is oil consumpttion. Even though
the consumption has now settled at 2300
miles per quart at the odometer reading
of 29000 miles it was 500 hundred miles
per quart of oil when the car was new.
Maybe it is broken in now! The engine
revs up higher at highway speed than I
like. At sixty MPH the engine is at
3000 RPM. My auto could use a sixth
gear or a different ratio in the top
gear. City and highway mileage is 27
MPG. Overall, I love this car.
solid body, fine finish, high quality
interior fit, finish and material, power
slower engine speed on the freeway,
better gas mileage, less oil initial
