Test drive before you buy a competitor

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


This car, even with it's not so
impressive specs (115hp and not an
amazing amount of torque) is quite
amazing to drive. I have the 5 speed
manual, and I can tell you, it's
sportive if you drive it right
The build quality is excellent, all
comes standard, it's near perfection.
I have read the reviews on this site,
and most people say it's not powerful
enough, but most (editor and users)
have an auto box. What in God's name
do you expect from that...
Take a spin in a 5speed manual and you
will realize the hidden potential.

Best Features

Amazing performences (compared with price and even other more expensive cars (driving a Saab Aero appart from the Golf); Well built; Amazing handling; Predictable behaviour (front wheel drive); Nice interior

Worst Features

Oil change schedualed at 2k miles; less expensive services (for it's price range); maybe a 2l with 4 or 5 valves (not 8 like now) and Variable Valve Timing; 15 to 20 more hp to be perfect.
