2002 Volkswagen Golf GLS 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Only owned 1week, but I love it. Very
smooth and refined. Pleasantly
surprised with the power from base 2.0
engine and 5speed trans. So far, fuel
economy near upper end of rating and
car not even broken in. It's a Benz on
a budget. This car is an excellent
highway/hi-speed cruiser. After 1 week
of ownership, can't really comment on
reliability but if it proves to be
reliable then this may be the best car
I've ever owned.

Best Features

The Monsoon sound system is nice. I like the cool blue guages. The base engine has certainly exceeded my expectations. It sounds nice, revs freely, feels smooth, and has impressive torqe. One of the few cars I've ever driven that feels like it has more power than it actually does.

Worst Features

Cup holders need work. They work well but the location sucks.
