1999 Volkswagen Golf GL 4dr Hatchback


Very happy with my VW Golf after nearly
four years. It's my first new car after
college, and for the money it's been an
excellent vehicle. I've had one or two
issues, but the warranty or VW has
helped me nearly every time. The only
bad stuff happened when I took it
somewhere else when it should've gone
back to the dealer. I don't miss having
power windows or four doors, as the
standard features more than make up for
that. Some people must have bad luck,
because I've never had a problem so bad
that I wanted to get rid of it. In
fact, my wife's Camry is up next year,
and we're already scouting which VW is
going to replace it! VW has a fan for
life in me.

Best Features

Sporty, inexpensive, good handling and great gas mileage. Great first car or college car. Full sized spare is fantastic. People scoff at how much I can carry in the hatchback until I put the seats down; it makes a beliver out of them too.

Worst Features

I have to gripe about cupholders too, but Europeans don't seem to require the mammoth amount of liquids Americans always have in the car, so I doubt they're going to change it. But if they make the 6 disc changer standard, I'll try to forget the cupholders...
