1993 Volkswagen Golf CL 1.8 Gas from North America
Decent car, but can have a lot of problems, not as economical as expected for a Volkswagen
New battery at 142000 kms.
New starter at 144000 kms.
Though it was rust free, but rusting on back hatch, in wheel wells, and under passenger door nearly right after I bought it.
Electrical problems a couple of times.
I have only had the car for 10000 kms, but it has not proved to be the reliable VW I was looking for.
It handles nice, drives nice in the manual transmission, but it is quite slow, revs very high at high speeds, and is not really impressive on gas. Not bad, but I expected better.
It also is noisy at high speeds, and is not really smooth on the highway.
The car is comfortable to drive, but not near as economical, reliable and cheap to run as expected.
Very roomy, factory alarm.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
