In their own words

The brochure promised 'Maximum speed 131mph'. On a German motorway it just about got to 98mph. No power in 4th or 5th gears. Nothing extra to get you out of trouble. When overtaking a Truck, in Germany and in France, it is quite common to find another car approaching from behind at speed. This golf has nothing there to get you out of the way!! The brochure promised ' Fuel economy Urban 44.8 mpg* Extra urban 68.9 mpg* Combined 58.9 mpg' The best urban is 30mpg, the best on Motorways is 42mpg. There is a vast gap between claimed fuel economy and actual economy. The seats are very uncomfortable and the side mirrors badly designed ( they constantly pick up an internal reflection from the air vent edging). I have owned five VW's over many years. This golf is hopeless and very dissapointing. I think they have over-engineered the 1.5 engine to get better eco-ratings, but not achieved any reasonable performance or evern fuel economy!
