2000 Volkswagen Golf Hatchback GLS 4dr Hatchback


Review

Love to drive it, hate to fix it. Had it for 2 years, been to the dealer 10+ times.
All four windows have broken at least once (pass. rear broken 3 times),
doors and windows freeze in a mild winter, vinyl on all four door panels
melted off, rear cup holder broke (even though nobody uses it), both back
brakes completely replaced, recalled twice. The best part: the extended
warrenty I bought at the dealer in Canada cannot be redeemed at the dealer I
go to in the U.S.!! What's up with that? Definitely my first and last VW.


Best Features

gas mileage when on cruise control, cd player and speakers, very comfortable - can drive it for 10 hrs continuously no problem


Worst Features

windows, windows, windows

Review

i cant believe the problems i have had
with this car. ive had my o2 sensor
changed twice in the past 6 months. my
mass air flow sensor took a dump on me
at 30000 miles. my instrument panel
for my a/c, heat jammed up and had to
get that replaced. my coolant sensor
went bad at 28000. i cant believe a
car that carries the vw badge could
preform so poorly. i should of bought
a honda!!!


Best Features

cool instrument gauges...?


Worst Features

recall all the golfs and give us a gift certificate for the nearest honda dealership.

Review

I've owned VW's since 1967 and this is
my first lemon. The window regulators
have failed in two windows at a cost of
repair of $330 each. The oil
consumption was so bad at 30K miles
that they had to replace the rings.
Every month it seems like another $300
bucks.


Best Features

I don't know what to do since I'm short and it's the perfect car for me to reach the pedal and see over the dash board.


Worst Features

Fix the electronic problems.
