2000 Volkswagen Golf GL 2dr Hatchback


This car was my first brand new car.
Here is my grand list of bad behavior
by my little golf; rear break pads and
rotors replaced at 20k, radio replaced
due to sticky buttons, mid console
replacement due to damage during radio
installation, rear break pads replaced
again after another 15k miles! At 40k
miles, water pump and timing belt went!
Covered under warranty, but they also
had to replace oxygen sensor and mass
air flow sensor. Bottom line, the car
is neat, but reliability sucks, VW
service dept. sucks, and customer care
folks suck too. So, I hope that my
experience will help deter future
suckers from buying a German
engineering nightmare.

Best Features

Not much except the deceptive stylish look of the car and handling that only last until the next mechanical breakdown.

Worst Features

Improved reliability of the car that includes extended warranty.
