"LOVE this car! With 317,000 miles, I've had no engine/tranny/steering rack issues at all. Suspension, exhaust and brakes have needed work,because of road salt and normal wear. The 1.9L diesel hauls a decent load in a small trailer, and I can fit a lot inside the car. The ONLY complaint I have is that the seat reclines only by slowly cranking it with a wheel. I like to nap when I'm waiting for people, and I'd like a simple lever."

"This is my 4th VW, I bought this because I needed to replace my last car which was wrecked by a hit-and run driver. The only problems: replaced the catalytic converter and the O2 sensors and the ground cable to the distributor. Followed all the maintenance schedules and have had a GREAT history with this car. ONE note, I perform most of my mechanical work so my ownership costs are low."

Pros: "MILEAGE still getting 38 MPG after 11 yrs"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Pros: MILEAGE still getting 38 MPG after 11 yrs of driving it; front-wheel drive good for snow; stable to drive; has good pickup, though after 160,000 it is getting tired. Has cover to hide stuff behind rear seat; rear seats fold down almost flat, has tie-downs embedded in frame for cargo area. Had ABS standard, one of the reasons I bought it. Cons: transmission had to be replaced at 60,000 (get insurance!); lower part of front bumper comes off easily when hangs up on some curbs where u park, had to replace it; no good for off-road, big blind spot back corner, low not so good for seniors, to recline seat had to turn a wheel."

"My first new car purchase was a 4 door VW Golf. I've loved it ever since. Driving Golfs seems to run in our family with 3 of us owning one. All the girls are on the tall side and the guys shoot right up there at 6ft, 6'4" and 6'7" so you'd expect they wouldn't be able to fold into a little Golf. Worry not. No folding required. They all love their Golfs too. And this car works for all of us. We shop at Swedish very large bright yellow and blue colored store (no advertising, right?) a lot and have been able to get all our purchases into our Golfs. The first long drive I took in my then new car was a 5 hour run up the Calif. coast. I thought I'd be screaming with back pain, but, nope. Not a squeak. I've never had any mechanical problems which I'm guessing is because I've made sure the oil and service was up to date . And I love the stick shift! Even driving in San Francisco."

"Other than some minor complaints about quality, This car has been great to own. Minimum of 46 MPG city and up to 54 MPG highway is no meager feat. I wish it was still new."

"I bought this car new in July 2010 and got a fabulous deal on the color and all equipment I wanted. I have meticulously maintained it, and even though I live in a very hilly area, I still have 60% of my original brakes left according to my mechanics. I also still have the original manual transmission and it is in good condition. I have replaced the timing belt as a safety precaution, because the car does have an interference engine. All original equipment on the car works well even after 10 years! The only flaws were caused by me, like forgetting to close windows and having rain spots on my blond upholstery, and hitting the garage door and having to touch up paint. I hope I never have to part with my cute little Golf!"
