1994 Volkswagen Golf CL TD 1.9Turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
VW - I want my money back!
Jerky throttle response.
Wheel cylinders failed.
Our 8th VW/Audi product with service history and it stands out from the rest as a total turkey. Appalling brakes and ride. Noisy, so-so economy (suspect the injectors need replacing, but the rest of the car is so disapointing I don't want to spend the money) Flat un-supportive seats, equipment level is nil. In comparison to our Passat the later Golf design is a total joke. Wind noise is dreadful whereas the Passat has none. The Passat ride is a bit harsh, but the Golf rear end bottoms out even with new gas shocks!!
Rust on a 8 year old VW is simply unbelievable. The Passat is 13 and rust free.
2 redeeming features:
Variable intermittent wipe for front screen.
You can change the colour of the radio illumination!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
