2005 Volkswagen Golf GL 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I've had this car for 6 months and love it. It rides like a German sedan. The base engine has plenty of power at sea level and pulls smoothly if you learn the power curve. People at higher altitudues that climb hills and need more passing power should opt for the 1.8T engine. I am getting about 330-400 miles per tank. The best I've averaged on a tank is about 27.5 MPG (30 MPG on the highway is possible if you didn't go over 65/70 MPH). Also, the interior is very nice for such an inexpensive car. The A/C is cold/strong. The stereo is better than expected. It fits four. This car isn't for the pocket rocket crowd. It is a better fit for the urban dweller or person who wants an inexpensive car that doesn't feel cheap.

Best Features

(1) Overal look and feel of interior. (2) Ride comfort. (3) Gas mileage. (4) All the standard features (A/C, airbags, disc brakes, keyless entry, cruise control, electric everything...) (5) Can park in the smallest spaces.

Worst Features

None. Driving this car until the wheels fall off it.
