The excellent gas mileage and reliability of the 2002 golf tide (al engine).

The golf 2002 tide is an amazing, reliable and fuel efficient. I bought the car 6 years back in 2012, and I cannot believe how reliable the engine is. I already put 300, 000 miles in the odometer and the cars still runs great. The best part is that I have only done the basic maintenance; like changing the oil each 5000 miles. Also, this car brings excellent gas mileage. Usually I can get 550 miles per tank. Overall, the golf tide it's a good buy if you want a car that is compact, efficient, and reliable.

Hatch back, great around town long distance driving has a built in alarm system.

My VW is great in the snow and very reliable. I do not have any problems with it except for the usual maintenance of your vehicle to keep it on the road. Taxes and registration due my tight budget. Plus doing the normal frontend repair of the tie rods and ends. Just put new tires brakes, pads, and rotors on it.

Fun to drive and good gas mileage.

My car is a tank. It is 16 years old and is still chugging along. With any old car, somethings have started to go. My car doesn't have air conditioning. The engine coolant has a small leak but I love driving it. It's a manual and very fun to drive and reliable and gets good gas mileage.
