I will say now that the Mark 5 VW Golf has always had a bit of a soft spot in my heart, yes, I know it's a car but I really liked them when they first came out in 2004, even though I was only 14 I've always been into my cars. I blame Dad for that! So when July 2007 finally rolled around and ... Read review

VW Golf... Me and my Little Rex... Review with images

AdvantagesA fabulous looking car...

DisadvantagesNot everyone has all the added extras!

"I will say now that the Mark 5 VW Golf has always had a bit of a soft spot in my heart, yes, I know it's a car but I really liked them when they first came out in 2004, even though I was only 14 I've always been into my cars. I blame Dad for that! So when July 2007 finally rolled around and I was hunting for a driving instructor, it was only natural for me to choose one that was using the Mark 5 as their instructor car, I was spoilt i have to say ..."

The Car that is too Clever for its own Good...

Advantageslooks nice

Disadvantagesnot reliable in my experience

"When it comes to cars I'm pretty uncomplicated really - as long as I can get myself and my stuff into whatever car I'm driving, turn the key and go, I'm happy. Though, in my time, I've worked in tyre, brake and clutch factories (all part of my mission at the time to teach English to the French) I really have no interest in knowing what's under the bonnet. If you are in the market for one of these second hand - VW is on to MK6 now I believe, before ..." Read review

A new version of a classic and popular car

AdvantagesGreat looking car, nice drive

DisadvantagesPricing, although lower than some years ago, is still relatively high

"Recently, my poor car Joey got poorly (drove over something which severed the fuel pipe under the car) so he had to go to Dr Volkswagen, and, in the meantime while my car was being checked and fixed, I was given a courtesy car, which was a new Golf 1.6 FSI, so I thought I'd review it. The Golf is available in the 1.6 edition as an S model, SE model, Sport, GT, GTi, and R32 models. The S is the base model: as you move up through the different editions ..." Read review

What a car!!

AdvantagesGreat interior, wonderful drive

DisadvantagesCosts more than other cars similar to it

"Almost 6 months ago I decided to trade in my Ford Fiesta and get a proper car. I'd pretty much set my heart on a Golf but needed to try some other cars and also decide what mark Golf I wanted. After test driving a few cars I finally decided that the Golf was my favourite and that was what I was going to get. Next onto whether to get a mark 4 or mark 5. From the outside I definitely prefer the mark 4. Its more distinguished and easily recognisable. ..." Read review

Poor Quality VW GOLF V

AdvantagesGood looks and history as a solid reliable car

DisadvantagesPoor quality parts which are extremely expensive to replace

"POOR QUALITY VW GOLF V! Having bought a new golf in 2004 in the mistaken belief that they are solid and reliable I have been very disappointed with lots of silly but annoying faults. The local garage is very polite but totally inefficient. Last month I fitted a new set of Bosche wipers but according to my service mechanic they are all poor! However my rear brakes which are apparently 99% worn are acceptable and he has passed my MOT??? With ..." Read review
