Excellent - if you have driven it you know; if you haven't - you don't know what you're missing


Nothing. Everything works perfectly, like new.

General Comments:

This car has a 1.4 44kW AEX-coded engine. It's reliable and nice. Fuel consumption is 6-6,5 lit per 100 km, max speed is 170 km/h.

Original tires are 175/70 R13, but now I have 185/60 R14 Goodyear Excellence.

I use to say - I love this car, but I miss only two things: air conditioner, and servo steering.

My Golf is white colour code B9A, which is very easy to maintain. Once a month I do polish it, so I can tell that my baby is like new.

0-100 km/h=13,8 sec (if I'm alone in car, (I weigh 75 kg) )

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
