Not quite as bulletproof as promised

2003 Volkswagen Golf GL 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


he Brazilian Golf seems a little more
fragile than it's German bretheren.
Sure the plastics are still top notch,
the interior well designed and the shut
line laser tight but there are hust a
few too many problems.

Windshield wipers that snapped in the
first half mile, a dashboard that
worked loose by 2000 miles, a passenger
airbag that failed and had to be
replaced at 5,000 and some very fragile
wheel hubs and you see why my
confidence has been a little shaken.

Best Features

Blue lighting at night... eats up highway miles with ease... stereo better than it has a right to be

Worst Features

Build quality closer to German assembled cars, dealer servicing at fairer prices
