Great car for commuting
By Harold J on


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


The golf is great for commuting but not for
transporting more than 3 people. when 4 or
5 people are in the car it gets kind of
sluggish. but for driving to work, home,
shopping and a little roadtrip its great. It
comes off the corners well but will handle a
lot better with performance tires. The manual
windows are great since my buddies auto
window regulators keep breaking on his
2002 gti. check up on the window regulators
they are notorious for failling but i think
VWOA had a recall out on it now but you
may want to check it out to make sure

Best Features

My favorite feature is its universal parts with the hisger model gti. I can upgrade to leather once i find a totalled gti or i take parts straight of the gti and replace my damaged ones

Worst Features

no big improvements, i got used to its power so it could use a bit more power but more power would cost more money so I am happy with saving money
