1988 Volkswagen Golf 1.8 8v from North America
Sporty, excellent value
I replaced the exhaust for 50 dollars about a year ago.
It eats oil a little quickly, about one quart every couple thousand miles.
Air conditioning died before I ever got the car, it costs in the upper 400s to replace because it has the old Freon compressor, nobody sells them anymore so you have to upgrade, sadly.
This car has been a dream to drive, no major mechanical problems EVER.
If you upgrade to Bosch Platinum +4 spark plugs, pickup and freeway performance are SERIOUSLY increased!
I put in 500 dollars for a new paint job, some interior amenities, and a couple of new engine parts, and it's like a brand new car.
A wonderful, original car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
