Excellent

A fabulous looking car...

Not 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...

Great looking car, nice drive

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...

looks nice

not 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...

“What a car!!”

published 07/07/2008

Great interior, wonderful drive

Costs 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...

“Poor Quality VW GOLF V”

published 09/04/2010

Good looks and history as a solid reliable car

Poor quality parts which are extremely expensive t...

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...

“vw golf 1.6 fsi”

published 09/11/2008

economical on short and distance journey.

slow pick up

i have a golf 1.6 fsi myself and i really like it. beside doing the best for the environment and saving money, the 1.6 liter is a bit slow on pick up and lags what the r32 or gt or gti would have, sporty looks powerful engine and better luxuries, i.e upgraded stereo better seats alloy wheels etc...

“Good Practical Car”

published 19/02/2011

Economical , 6 gears, not slow

looks standard without coloured trim

I have purchased this Golf 1.6 FSI for almost half a a year now and have no problems yet with this car. I have upgraded from a Renault Clio and the change is HUGE. The boot space is massive i could fit a 40 LED TV with ease! The room for passengers as well is surprisingly spacious. (I have a 5...
