1997 Volkswagen Golf GL 4dr Hatchback


Although not the cheapest and for the
money do don't get what you might get
in others it was 7k well spent. 3
years down the road and my 97' Golf is
still going strong and approaching the
100k mile mark.

It's power is undoubtedly lacking, but
on freeways it's really unoticable.
Comfortable, fun to drive, frugal and
distinct. Only real problems you might
have is finding a place to get it
serviced and the extra money that will
cost you.

It comfortably sits 4, 5 is a squeeze
and trunk room isn't all that great,
but if you're looking for more then
you're probably not looking for this

Nice, fun and frugal to drive. Golf is
a good choice.

Best Features

Fun to drive. Great on Gas. Small size means fits almost anywhere.

Worst Features

More powerful engine would have been nice, and some of the quality of interior and exterior parts leaves to be desired.
