Fun Car to Drive, Lacks Performance

2004 Volkswagen Golf GL 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I drive this car about 50 miles a day to and from work. Comfortable ride and overall a pleasure to drive. This car makes the daily commute bearable for me.

Best Features

I like the "cockpit" feel and the easy to see and read gauges. Sporty feel to it as well. If you drive it like a normal human being you can get close to 30 mpg.

Worst Features

The 2.0 L automatic lacks power. They should of just used the 1.8 L with a small turbo. My biggest complaint is the plastic gears they continue to use in the window regulators.
