I found a cheap, stick 2 door Golf for sale locally and it got me thinking this could be a really nice, sorta short term, city run around/daily driver that costs me nothing, type car. Anyone have a long history with one? I know the 5 pot is quite robust, and always loved the way it drove with a 5 speed. The seats are more than likely heated and super supportive. The turning ratius is great. Its more than peppy. Just seems like a perfect package.
What am I missing? Anything in particular to look out for? Anyone just get one that is starting to fall apart?
