1996 Volkswagen Golf GTD 1.9 TDi turbo diesel
Cheap, reliable, and good performance daily drive!
I had to change the clutch at 230 000km, but no wonder, the clutch was changed the first time here, so it will last until the car dies from rust now.
Had several problems with engine control vacuums, but no wonder, they tear in a row of years and daily use in various conditions e.g. cold, hot, dry, etc.
Overall the car had no problems or any illness. Not many things can go wrong on this car.
This Golf is cheap to run, economical, and has good performance; 81kw for this lightweight car is really more than enough.
My car has no rust, as it had good care before.
The seats are pretty comfortable and adjustable; really good.
So for daily use, the Golf is just the right choice for me, however, for longer distances it is not so comfortable, but drivable.
This car is so reliable, that I am always SURE that I will reach my destination :)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
