The VW Golf GLS is truly a great car. It is the perfect combination of fun, cool, reliability and economy. Not only does this car NOT waste gas, but it NEVER breaks down. You will NOT spend alot for maintenance on this car! Creature comforts are many with this car. Power windows & mirrors, cruise control, nice sound system and great cup-holders are all standard. The best part is - this car ZIPS! Its surprisingly strong engine and sports-car like steering make it alot of fun to drive. Lastly - the hatch fits ALOT of stuff!

Mk 4 is the fist set of cars that vw decided to make more luxurious and abandon the "volk"(folk).The idea was to compete with audi and follow the success of a3 and a4. This car provides more comfort than previous models but breaks down more often and most of the models have design flows in the engeneering compartment due to the transition of simple car which can be fixed directly on the road to one that will make you look a little bit more sophisticated. Other than that most of the engines are good and reliable. The best ones are 1.6 petrol 101hp and the 110 TDI engine and it's modifications. If you choose to buy this car, stay away from all 2.0l (115bhp) and the 1.8T build before 2000. Also all vw mk4s have problems with electronics. But still compared to some french, italian or american car.. this is sustainable engeneering and probably will outlast you.

Very fun to drive, adequate power, 2.0 l, but falls apart inside and out (gas door, oil gauge, hood release, cat converter, fan drive, alternator, glove compartment, arm rest, etc) . Most expensive car I have owned, due to very frequent repairs and imported parts. Spent more in 2 years than Dodge minivan in 10 years! Everything seems to cost a minimum of $400! Fun to drive manual transmission though, so rare in this automatic culture!
