Perfect car for me
By cjo4 on
Vehicle2001 Volkswagen Golf GL 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewPerfect car for a recent college grad.
Great build quality to shame a Merc,
luxurious ride, fun to drive, all the
safety bits (8 airbags, disc brakes
w/ABS, etc), nicely equipped, and a
sense of a car costing $10k more. More
than 2 yrs on, and ppl still give me
looks as if it were an Audi (which it
feels like). Has been dead reliable,
always starts (even in mid NE winter),
and the size and space of hatch is
amazing. Pity my color is no longer
offered-bright green-cause it makes it
look so upscale. Love the looks, love
the price (paid less than $15k), and
love the fuel econ (+30mpg).
Best FeaturesRide comfort, build quality, interior space, fun to drive, practical, excellent brakes, peppy low-end torque, peace of mind of side/curtain airbags
Worst Featuresmore power (addressed for new '05 model, or upgrade to GTI), and PLEASE VW bring the Pump Duse diesel engines- 150 HP, 230lb-ft!!!!
