great family / sporty car
By drtraw on
Vehicle2001 Volkswagen Golf GLS 1.8T 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
ReviewThis golf is a sporty, fun car and also
handles family needs. Although it is
not huge, it holds up to four people
w/good headroom and a large hatch
area. We often choose it for family
road trips over my wife's midsize SUV.
The turbo engine is great, easily
rivals honda for vibration free power
and has much better torque for city
driving. I thought the base suspension
was comfortable but too soft so I
switched out the springs and shocks for
GTI-style handling. Also, the interior
is very well done for a car in this
price range and it is very quiet on the
Best FeaturesTurbo engine, good mileage without sacrificing performance.
Worst FeaturesTwo recalls were inconvenient, but fixed at no charge. base suspension too soft.
