ReviewI bought the Golf because my wife had
an 89 Jetta that was built like a
tank. The problems didn't start until
just before the warranty expired. At
22,000 miles we had to have the engine
computer and various sensors
replaced. Oil just "disappears" and
mileage is about 20mpg. Brakes and
water pump went at 40,000, alternator
($600) at 42,000. The plastic parts
and glue have been getting worse and
worse all summer. I walked out one
morning to find the passenger side
trim just hanging (thank god for crazy
glue). We're taking a loss and
trading it in for a Toyota Matrix.
Don't know if I'll trust the Germans
