Review

I have more problems with my Golf than
I could have imagined. In five years,
the exhaust system has failed four
times, the distributor twice, the
radiator once, the wheel bearings
once, the starter once, a crankshaft
bearing seal twice in a month (and now
possibly a third time), and the
cylinder head coolant flange once.
The front wheels tend to become
misaligned very easily, wearing out
tires like it's a Viper at a drag
strip, and the rear wheels are out of
alignment but are apparently not
alignable. The tailgate rusted
quickly, ruining the rear wiper motor
and the plate lights, and the silly
strips on the doors keep falling off.
Fun to drive, though.


Best Features

The car has no glovebox. It's my favorite feature because it is an oddity, and I like oddities.


Worst Features

A different car.

1995 Volkswagen Golf Hatchback Sport 2dr Hatchback


Review

Sold my Sport Golf yesterday. Was 8
years old, 102000 miles. Wanted 4 doors
and ABS.

Good looking car, some women would stop
me on a parking lot and told me they
like the car!

Strong engine, powerful. Reliability was
okay.


Best Features

Performance. Look. Fun to drive.


Worst Features

No glove box. Breaking was not that good. Price of VW parts are outrageous!

Review

I bought this Golf with 52k miles in
dec/o2, the car now has 69k miles on it
7months later, no problems @ all, I run
synthetic oil in it...
the car is very reliable... as a
commuter, or weekend race project, add
another $10,000 or so, & it's
performance & style will be on par with
will a bimmer

my car has many of the aftermarket
upgrade options avail... I added leather
seats inside & a 7" in-dash dvd/tv system...
exterior, upgraded all the lighting,
lowered the car 2" & have a set of
borbet wheels..
performance wise I have a Neuspeed
Supercharger,50Hp shot Nitrous Express ,
aftermarket exhaust & many other goodies...
