buyer beware!!!

2001 Volkswagen Golf GL 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Where do I start? My first problem
occurred at 24,300 miles...just over
the 24,000 mile warranty (how
convenient). After shelling out a mere
$650, I was confident that I wouldn't
experience anymore problems. I was
wrong. I sunk another $1300 into my
lemon of a car at only 35,000 miles. A
few months after purchasing my car
(which had only 7000 miles on it at the
time), I had my sunroof motor replaced
(after driving around with a garbage
bag flapping in my face). I also had
the pleasure of experiencing this with
my passenger side window!! Needless to
say, I am looking forward to picking up
my 2000 Toyota Camry XLE tomorrow.

Best Features

Good Stereo, pretty car, good acceleration

Worst Features

perhaps VW could merge with Toyota or Honda or some other RELIABLE car manufacturer
