1999 Volkswagen Golf GL 1.6 1.6 Gasoline
Comfortable, but unreliable
Air condition compressor is broken. It cost me 400 USD to change with a used one. A new unit is over 1000 USD.
Paintwork is not good. Paint around the door edges looks like it's scratched on purpose.
When the weather is hot, plastic linings around the door is getting loose and impossible to fix it back.
There are lots of rattles all over the car, especially inside the doors.
There is a problem with the wheelchair, it feels like there is 1 cm space when turning.
It was stopping when idle or when cold. Service told it's a common problem and cleaned the engine air intake with a spray and it's fixed.
Air conditioner is noisy and making hissing sounds.
Golf is not a reliable car. After 4 years or 60.000 Km, almost every part tends to break.
It's comfortable and performance is very good. Engine is noisy, consuming over 12 Lt in urban.
There is no road noise.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
