The Golf III version is very reliable!

1999 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback
Review
1999 was the year that VW made two GTI's: 1) the last of the long-running Golf III series with the rear license plate on the hatchback 2) the brand new "New GTI" with the more rounded headlights and the license plate on the bumper. These are VERY different cars. the "New GTI" is appearently terrible.. or at least was in 1999/2000, according to two coworkers who have them. The "old" GTI was the final model in a series that just kept getting better.. I've got the "old" model and have had it for about 3 1/2 years. It has never, ever given me any trouble. I've kept good care of it (regular service, regular oil changes) but other than that I've done nothing special.
Favorite Features
Its tremendously fun to drive due to a very responsive clutch, sport suspension, and a stiff frame. The hatchback is useful for carrying everything from furniture to bicycles. Its also small enough to fit in tight spaces, so it is very useful for city driving.
