Between the Pacific Northwest and San Francisco is no short distance but with this car it proves to be comfortable, economical (between 32 and 39 mpg) and often negotiable.
Golf be nimble, Golf be quick, Golf often goes beyond Candlestick.
It is as a little truck in it's ability to take sizable loads and still be controllable, comfortable, nimble, fun and still not attract the gendarmerie.
I often look for replacements but can't seem to divest myself of this little car's attractions, attitude and efficiency.

Better than New Golf
from Washington, DC
on Wed Feb 10 2016
My 97 golf has about 160K miles on it, so I wanted to buy a new car. But, after several months of search and test drives, I wasn't able to find any car of similar type that I liked better than this old golf, so I gave up and decided to drive it until it really dies someday. The engine is not as powerful as modern compact cars, but this golf is very light, about same weight as mazda miata. Interior material and design are superior to most new compact cars of these days. Rear windows are larger than modern golf and other compact hatchbacks. Driving this car is very enjoyable. Often I drive this car just for the sake of driving fun.
