1988 Volkswagen Golf 1.6 natural aspirated diesel from Sweden
Cheap car, but noisy for long trips
Steering ball joint went bad.
CV joints went bad.
Rear wheel bearing went bad.
Track rod end went bad.
After only a few months, the compression was getting worse and it became hard to start.
Probably blew the head gasket because before I sold it, because it started to leak oil all over the engine compartment.
VERY easy on the fuel always; measured 0,45 litres/10km no matter how I drove it (without trailer).
Hauling a trailer it got 0,65 litres/10km.
Acceleration was pretty good for only having 54 HP.
Noisy if driven at normal highway speed (110km/h).
This car was in bad shape, but I got it cheap, and used it for about 6 months until the winter came.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
