2013 Volkswagen Gol Comfortline 1.6 gasoline
Cheap reliable means of transportation
Oxygen sensor at 100,000 km.
New set of tires at 60,000 km.
Initially I was very skeptical about the car, since the previous Gol model manufactured up until 2009 had a lot of problems, all non mechanical according to friends who own them; the first time I drove the car, it was a loan from my sister in law since she owned it at the time; got it for 2 weeks, and since I do city driving 90% of the time, I was very impressed because the car didn't had any significant rattles and gas mileage was never less than 13 km/l in a very hilly city.
Overall the car is a very good value, I mean it's just basic transportation, although car has A/C, sound system with Bluetooth, all for about USD $10K. The drawback is safety since it doesn't have ABS nor airbags.
Spare parts are very cheap, and performance is not that bad since the engine is pretty basic, only 2 valves per cylinder and no turbo, just a mere 105 HP; I guess it's fine since gas in my country is pretty bad.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
