I just got a red 1994 CL 219000kms on it, bought it for $3500 (CND). I love it, It has some chips in the paint, rust on the back hatch, and the hood is dented. I've named her "Samachine" in German it means Showing Machine. I love driving it and it has made me fall in love with VWs. She runs great and I know I and put it through a lot of crap and it'll still go. I plan on getting a new back hatch, and hood. I've worked on the body a bit and put in a new valve cover gasket and flew pipe rusted out at 217000 kms, but was an easy and cheap fix. Needless to say I may havo to pay more for parts a labour, but I can do most things myself with a little help from friends and the reliablility, beauty, and the fact that girls love little red hatch backs is more than worth it.

Sounds like somebody needs to learn how to inspect a car before handing over more than it's worth even if it was in good condition.

Caveat emptor, mang.

I think you didn't like this car from the first day. They are really good car from my experience, comparing with many other makes. I have the same model and it's going really well with over 200000 km's. They smart looking and built with standard materials. They are strong and stable on road. It also depends how we look after them.

I have a 94 Golf CL.. I bought it for $500. I had to change the battery and the brake master cylinder. That's it. I did the timing belt, water pump and the other belts along with the valve cover gaskets and camseals (because I wanted to). It has 287 000 kms. I have absolutely no problem with it. For a single point injected engine, its fast. I love VW now.

How exactly do you "blow" a brake drum?

I have 214,000 miles on mine, and it still runs great.
