1991 Volkswagen Golf GL 1.8L Fuel Injected from North America
I will love this car forever, it is my very first one
I bought this car off my uncle for $500. The body is in immaculate condition with barely any rust on it, I really got a good deal on it.
However! It is a Volkswagen, and as we all know, old Volkswagens tend to break down and steal your wallet, which is what this one started to do.
When I received it, the starter was faulty and one of the wheels needed the parking brake cable attached to it (those I already knew.) A few weeks later, the headgasket blew and the timing was off. I don't really have any time to fix it so I'm going to tow it to the VW dealership and have them fix those two things, then drive it back myself, and I shall replace the starter and the one parking brake cable.
The stereo was also no good, but I wasn't alarmed about that because I already have a new CD deck and 4 Sony Xplod speakers :)
Other than the problems I had with it, for the little time that I drove it, it is a very quick car even though the hp/torque numbers aren't very high. It surprised me while I was driving it!
It is also very comfortable - a lot more comfortable than the seats in my mother's 2004 Hyundai Accent.
It's standard! Stick is a lot of fun while driving.
I'm a 19 year old college student and this car is great for me. Excellent mileage!
Just be prepared to fork over some money to fix it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
