1999 Volkswagen Golf Tdi 115 1.9 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Love this car, paintwork will ultimately make me sell it though
Flash red paintwork can be troublesome - It is prone to fading, my bonnet needs T-cut every so often to bring the red back. A lot of effort, eventually it will turn pink like so many other red cars you see on the road.
Electric window can fall into door, mine did and I believe lots of other peoples have as well. This is a bit pathetic on a well engineered modern car. Cost about 160 pounds to fix and all it is is a little plastic mounting, but of course the whole part has to be replaced.
This diesel engine is a gem - 115HP, but the torque is really noticeable. Lovely to drive with all that low down power and can show up many a bigger engined petrol car. Revs low and has six gears so motorway cruising is a breeze. Slightly wobbly around corners, but not so much that you cannot go round them pretty quick.
Solid cabin and good sound system.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
