1999 Volkswagen Golf GL 2dr Hatchback (midyear)


I love VW. The Golf / GTI are my favorite modelss. This 2.0L GL is decent at 115hp and zips me from place to place with great fuel economy. I bought it used from a dealership and got hosed by them. Within first week motor mount broke and they wouldn't pick up the bill. Oh well, after that it has been smooth sailing. I am very happy with this car's ride comfort and handling. I love to weave through traffic in my VW hatchbacks.

Best Features

I like the cargo space that one gets when they fold down the Golf's rear seats. this car has plenty of room for the driver and pessengers. It is very stylish and fun car to drive. Its base sound system is amazingly powerful with its Pioneer CD player set for super-BASS and the LOUD system on.

Worst Features

The manual transmission needs 6 speeds. The 2.0L engine could have been improoved with 16v DOHC instead of leaving it as 8v SOHC. The climate controls should be up top like in the MK2 Golf instead of on the bottom and blocked by shifter.
