Pros: What do you like about your 2005 Volkswagen Golf?
I HAVE A 2004 VW GOLF AND TO ME I FIND THE 04 GOLF WITH A 5 SPEED TRANSMISSION TO BE DAMN FAST ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE A 5 SPEED WITH A 2.0L AND MY FAVORITE PART WOULD BE YOU CAN MAKE THE 5 SPEED 2.0L EVEN FASTER AND I MEAN FAST.
HAS THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF SEATING SPACE.

Cons: How would you improve your 2005 Volkswagen Golf?
-NEEDS A MORE SPORTY LOOKING DESIGN TO IT
-NEEDS TO HAVE TRUNK SPOILER STRAIGHT FROM FACTORY SHOULD NOT BE OPTION
-HIGHER FRONT END
- HEADLIGHTS WAAAAAAAY TO ROUND LOOKING. DO NOT LIKE IT AND HEADLIGHTS GO DULL

2005 Volkswagen Golf Review:
-SEATS TO CLOSE TOGETHER CON
-FRONT IS WAY TOO LOW CON
-PARTS ARE CHEAP PRO
-DRIVES GOOD PRO
-SUSPENSION WAY TOO HARD CON
-AERO DYNAMIC DESIGN PRO

2005 Volkswagen Golf Review:
Bought it new, got 45k miles on it, never had a problem with it. Friend calls it the "magic hat" because of the amount of stuff that can be put in it with the seats down. I've helped people move whole apartments of stuff!

Pros: What do you like about your 2006 Volkswagen Golf?
With gas prices the way they are this little gem of a TDI will surely do the trick. Not only is it what you need in interior comfort and exterior looks but has no extra fluff which makes for a classy vehicle.

Cons: How would you improve your 2006 Volkswagen Golf?
The fit and finish on minor details could be better. The HP on the TDI could be a little higher like its european bretheren. Note that this is nit-picking at this point...
