"This is my first Volkswagen and I LOVE IT!"

Solid, nice looking inside and out, it’s fast too!
That I hadn’t bought one sooner, seriously.
My Golf K2 is awesome! It’s black inside and out, air conditioned, heated seats, dual airbags, and it’s roomy as heck! I swear, it handles like it’s on rail! It has a premium sound system, (someone put Alpine speakers in every speaker hole in the car!) I’m buying another, for my buddy’s kid, she’ll love it like I love mine!

"Easy to maintain, Lasted multiple owners 22 years"

Great value, durable little car
No cup holders, No glove box
Bought the car as a 2nd car for Work transit. Lots of Short trips during week, ran a little longer on weekends to keep battery charged and get engine up to full temp. Had lots of room for a little car. good features and design for its age. Easy to work on and get parts for. Seals started leaking at Transmission and engine, Gas tank straps rusted and broke. Break lines were borderline in need of replacement due to rust. Replaced the ignition switch, Flushed and filled all fluids. Oil Changes were done once a year with Synthetic oil due to low milage (Mobile1 then switched to Royal Purple HPS) Engine ran great even though the Mechanic said the compression not as good at the end of its life. Replaced the Passenger side Door lock cylinder due to it being broken when I bought it. Most repairs with parts were cheap and effective. Had to Seal the Sunroof with Silicone caulk as it would pop up okay, but not slide. The Sunroof cable broke while I tried to slide the sunroof not long before the end. For all of the little problems, This was a Very durable little car and a Great Value for the age and purpose I had it for. It lasted 22.5 years through harsh salted road winters and warm summers,Read less

"Mechaically a great car. Rusted fast."

Very good car mechanically.
Very bad and pre mature body rot.
This car was and is still running great for a car with high mileage. This car rusted out in places I've never had cars rust. The back hatch, floor, radiator mount, rear brake assemblies, etc. rotted out in under 10 years. Absolutely the worst sheet metal and overall metal I've ever seen on a car. The car will have to be junked, because it's body has rusted away. All 4 jacking points on the body are rotted out. The rear brake systems have rusted like I've never seen. The fact that the car was built in Mexico and probably built out of poor sheet metal is why it rotted. I've been a VW owner for many years. After this car, I'm passing on another Mexican built VW.Read less

"Keep going like a hungry goat"

Great value & Fun to drive
None
Bought the car second hand. There is rust because of the last owner were careless and failed to appreciate the beauty of this car. I think the head gasket is leaking...OH WELL. This car is in pretty good cosmetic shape inside and I have repaired things as needed like the peeling seat backs or the trunk latch that sticks sometimes. No major leaks, Easy to work on and do basic maintenance. Gas mileage sucks because of the short trips I make. I run high octane fuel and use Royal Purple motor oil to offset the age and wear this vehicle has endured. The interior overall gets a 8 for being user friendly and well designed, the Exterior must have spent time in Philly with salt trucks. The Glass is good the Plastic parts are in great shape. Light rust in most places, But overall she starts up, runs and does a great service as a Beater, Paint has seen better days. Cheap to repair and maintain. Worth the money I spent in every aspect. Easy to get parts for. Great second car.Read less

"This has been a great, safe reliable vehicle for m"

fast, safe,smooth,tight, handling,great stereo
paint is ionized after 12 years
Loved this car from the start. Always felt safe. Size was deceiving. Moved a ton of items. 2 queen size headboards one time. For many years had another vehicle and husband had a work truck. This just sat. After 2 years thought we'd better do something with it and it just started right up. Never broke down and it just won't die. We just had to keep it.Its been a 3rd vehicle untill now and it just keeps going. Best feature to me is that I love that style has not changed. It does not look like a 20 year old car. I have had no major problems with this car. From consumer reports etc I would not have bought another one from what I have read..until now. I went the other day to kill time and sat in the 2015. Wow. Will research further and just possible be another golf owner.Read less
