Zippy hatchback by ShadowRacer on 05/14/2012. Trim: 2000 Volkswagen Golf GLS 1.8T, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: It has a lot of power behind it for a smaller car, very smooth ride even over rough tracks. When braking, it stops on a dime, and very easy to control.
Overall review: A car worth buying, will definitely be buying another newer one when i can.

Ultimate Junk by Nick and Pat on 07/18/2005. Trim: 2000 Volkswagen Golf GL 2.0, Owned 5 years.
Pros: Stylish, interior and exterior
Cons: Horrible vehicle from start to finish. From the day of purchase till we got rid of it was nothing but problems. A/C failures, transmission failures, radiator failures, electrical failures, interior equipment would chip and break too easily. Literally the last 2 years we had it, we never washed it because it would get washed at the dealership every other weekend when it was there for servicing. DO NOT BUY OR WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY ON VW’s. The dealership practicaly knew as at the end
Overall review: STAY AWAY FROM VW

Great bet for a used car by Donna on 03/16/2013. Trim: 2000 Volkswagen Golf GLS 2.0, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: Thirteen years, used daily, including on salt covered winter roads, and absolutely no rust. Even when it gets dirty the next rain brings back the awesome shine with no fading even after all these years. Great engine and road noise sound proofing, interior has a real look of quality, very nice sound from the speakers. Had original muffler up until just one month ago when it began to make noise and needed replacement. Very spacious inside and the rear seats totally flat, no problem carrying a bicycle or 8 foot long lumber.
Cons: Power window motor too strong, if the window is frozen it ends up pulling the window off its track. If the motor was not as strong it just would stay frozen shut. Had a few separate electrical issues that were very frustrating.
Overall review: Still looks so bright and shiny that no one can believe the car is so old. If you're looking for a used car to drive for the next couple of years, that doesn't look and sound like a junk box, grab an old Golf.

engineered to drive you by bk on 04/03/2008. Trim: 2000 Volkswagen Golf GLS 2.0, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: looks, steering, pickup/acceleration, interior features, heavy car. My friends said the doors look so solid when they open it.
Overall review: I have always liked german cars. Something about them that tells you you are driving a car and not a machine. Actually the car drives you, you dont drive the car. It is a stress reliever for me: the way it handles, takes turns. The new rabbit hopefully excels (would love to have one one day) but the golf of 2000 make is still very good for a student like me.
