The Volkswagen Golf is currently the 3rd best selling car in the world, with close to 30 million produced since 1974! Chances are, if you haven’t owned one or currently own one now, you probably will at some point in the future, despite the recent bad press VW are receiving!
I’ve personally owned a couple of Golfs, mk1 cabrio, mk1 tintop, a mk2 4 door oak green and my daily is a passat estate which the fantastic DSG gearbox.
Aside from the excellent build quality, decent ride and handling, practicality, understated but stylish design the Golf in our opinion is successful where others fail because it manages to be completely classless. Whether on the daily school run or at a posh wedding the Golf just fits in.
