This Golf is my cup of tee!

AdvantagesGorgeous exterior, good interior space, affordable and very quick.

DisadvantagesHaphazard reliability and common on the road

"A large part of my job involves having meetings with clients at their premises, hence my company has a decent selection of cars for the consultants to use for travelling. Amongst this fleet is a silver diesel-fuelled 1.9L VW Golf Mk5 TDI. As I drive a Ford Mondeo, I am used to a silky smooth and straightforward ride, however the Golf is a very different animal. Historically, the VW Golf has had a stigma attached to it that it is a boy racer's car. ..." Read review

Premium small car worthy of price tag

AdvantagesExcellent buid quality, depreciation, economical 1.6

DisadvantagesCheap lower cabin plastics, lost previous Golfs flair, expensive servicing

"Test Model: Volkswagen Golf SE 1.6 FSI 5 door Reg: AK06 YVC Mileage: 2470 Official 0-60: 9.7 secs Official max speed: 118 mph Before you start to read this review I will have to state that I am a self confessed VAG group fan. And I have loved the new Golf design since the first time I clapped my eyes on it. So after being car-less for a week while I waited for my brand new Seat Leon 2.0 TDI FR (review soon) I was fortunate to rent a new Golf ..." Read review

VW Golf Mk V - 3dr 1.9TDI

AdvantagesSpacious 3dr, drives like a dream

DisadvantagesA few electronic teething problems

"I have had my golf for about 2 months and done around 2500 miles in it. I purchased the Golf as an ex-demo car. The first thing you will notice when you compare the Golf to equivilent 3 doors (Astra Sport Hatch, Citroen C4 Coupe, Renault Megane) is the sheer space. In all the others cars I struggled to get in the back (I am 6ft 3in) and getting out was even harder! In the Golf I can hop in and out with ease and with plenty of head room. The ..." Read review

The new improved VW Golf! It's fab!

AdvantagesSleek, stylish and well designed

DisadvantagesCan't think of one!Get

"Hooray, I've been promoted!!......I was lucky enough to be able to choose a VW Golf as my new company car!!. Seeing as I've already had it 2 weeks, I felt that that was plenty of time to give it a bit of a mention on ciao! I'll concentrate the majority of this op on the model that I have, rather than VW Golf as a whole make of car, as I know next to nothing about the other models in the range! I have a 1.4 FSI (5 door) Now....a little background ..." Read review

Golf GT Sport. You know you want one! Review with images

AdvantagesUnderstated style for those with taste.

DisadvantagesToo understated for some tastes.

"...it was repaired within a Volkswagen group approved repairer so no worries there then either. 12 years anti corrosion and three years on the paint. I am, hovever struggling to find fault with the car so money well spent I think. The GT Sport has become an even better deal now as the car now has Vienna leather seats at no extra cost. There really is no good reason not buy buy one if you are looking for a car in this class. ..." Read review

Golf has aged and has gone senile

AdvantagesResidual market value

DisadvantagesExpensive - has become too clever for itself

"I have a 2007 MK5.5 golf hatch 1.9TDi - all I can say is that it is appalling compared with a MK4 golf I have (MK5.5 due to the new type engine with 132g/km CO2 emission). First a simple stupid design: fitting a chrome rim to a coin tray on the dashboard! It causes reflection in windscreen and distracts driver - a safety hazard. The fuel economy of the 1.9TDi engine has worsened a lot. With my MK4 Golf, I get 52mpg the usual way I drive. With ..." Read review

The New Golf V 1.9 TDI

AdvantagesSafe and Economical

DisadvantagesSqueak and Rattle

"I have just clocked 1,000 miles (yes a RHD!) and have moved on from a Golf Mk4 which was also a TDI. Initially the overall comfort and styling held me in awe, and once again the blue console back-lighting is fabulous. As you start to get used to driving this car, the acceleration, road holding and ride all seem superiour to the previous Golf, but then it is 5 years old now so that may not be a fair comparison. One complaint that I have stemmed ..." Read review

1.9TDI Match 5 door

AdvantagesSpec , handling , performance, economy, safety , Looks !

DisadvantagesA bit pricey, diesel 1.9 is an old design of engine ( though pulls very well)

"1.9TDI Match 5 door . New Sept 07. Sarah's car , but a few observations from me...We are absolutely delighted! I own a recent BMW 530DSE and yet in some ways the Golf is more fun to drive! We didn't expect this. Highlights of the recent "Match" spec include an ipod interface ( holds it and charges it too, not just the poor flappy lead that BMW give you !) . Attractive easy to clean alloy wheels, powerful air con, sports seats , 4 electric windows, ..." Read review

A lovely car

AdvantagesHandling, fuel & the badge

DisadvantagesIt's just a bit dull

"I currently have a Mk V golf 1.9TDI Sport. It's a company car and I end up with a smile on my face every time I drive this car. It handles so very well I previously had a MkIV golf V5 which I loved, this car handles better than the V5 does and it justs seem to have so much grip and you really have to push it to make it get go. I the 1.9TDI engine is a little under powered but the 6 speed gear box gets the most out of the engine, there have been a ..." Read review

Small yet big

AdvantagesSmall and spacious, can satisfy a lot of needs

DisadvantagesCan't be considered a family car

"With a very flexible and dynamic suspension, very elegant interior and well calculated engine size and power management, Golf V became the best car for teenagers, especially girls, who like the comfort of a limo and size of a small, city car. I got one for myself 3 months ago and I must say that this car is perfect for my tuning mania also. There are a lot of custom parts designed and even more designer that choose to work with this body. Overall, ..." Read review
