I had a 2002 golf for 2 years, bought it with 19K on it. The car was fun to drive and I like the interior design. I bought it in FL and took it to TX with me. When all the systems were running (AC, high beams, CD player) and you went to put down the power windows, the radio would shut off. Also, the ABS brake light would randomly come on while I was driving. Took to a local dealer in TX because it was still under warranty. The dealership manager told me I was making up the problem (so I could drive 80 miles every week to have it fixed). It was a pain in the rear. There are fun cars out there with fewer problems - never again.
Dash lights, fun at fast speeds, handling.
See above - also I broke the center storage cover by accidently leaning the wrong way. Kind of flimsy.
The only negative of this car is that the cup holder is located over the radio! This car exceeded every other expectation. Great gas mileage, very reliable. Peppier than expected for a diesel. Got 120,000 out of the first set of brakes.
Fun car to drive, very tight. The seat are designed to hug the body. Blue dashboard.
Again, placement of cup holders and more cup holders.
My Golf was perfect until after I had put 60,000 miles on it, then things started to fall apart. I had some mechanical trouble that ended up being quite costly. Other than that, I loved the car. It was fun and sporty.
It is very quick and fun to drive. I especially loved the blue interior lights and premium stereo.
The cup holders cover the front of the stereo controls, which is annoying when trying to change CDs, track, or volume.
