2000 Volkswagen Golf GTi 1.8 turbo 20 valve from UK and Ireland
Not cheap to own or insure, but worth every penny
The vanity mirror light stays on all the time.
Smooth effortless acceleration, holds the road well and not at all tiring to drive.
Superb radio/CD player and quality interior except the carpets which are thin, poor quality and the driver's side has worn badly in just over a year. I have tried to buy good quality replacements but have had no luck and have resorted to rubber mats!
The back of the car gets exceptionally dirty in wet weather, would fitting mud flaps and/or a roof spoiler cure this problem?
It's very easy to park.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
