Reliable, uncomfortable and cheap to own
The old Golf 2's have a rust problem.
I had to change two doors, and weld together a hole in the floor to get it approved for another two years.
Other than that nothing broke down. Straight through a solid car.
The Golf 2 is a really cheap car. Both to buy (used) and to own.
Even though consumable items, wear and tear items that is, needs changing from time to time, these parts are so cheap that you almost won't notice the cost at all.
When it comes to comfort the car is a total nightmare. I have never owned nothing so close to a piece of metal with 4 wheels and a motor attached to it. There was NOTHING on it. I mean, that's wrong to say, because it had a heater. And windshield wipers!
Sorry, I started out a bit harsh here. It actually has got 2 things on it, heater and windshield wipers.
Other than that, nothing. Not even a power steering (servo).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
