"I bought it new; have driven it 180,000 miles. 97 Golf is better than its reputation; it is an excellent vehicle overall. Car has been largely trouble free. Gas mileage has been better than EPA rating. Maintenance costs have been low; brake mileage, tire mileage, etc. have been very good. Solid car, good handling, quality materials and construction. If VW still made an inexpensive 4 cylinder Golf/Rabbit I would buy another one."

"Bought this car used for my daughter. I've owned many, many VW's and other German cars so I'm biased, but this has been a great, practical little car. She's hauled her stuff back and forth to college without a problem. Extremely practical design that has evolved nicely from the original. I've replaced a battery, alternator, and one ABS wheel speed sensor. All simple repairs. Access to the little engine is great - no hassles changing oil, etc. Great car, fun to drive and inexpensive to maintain."

I love this car!
