We have a 2001 Golf, which did need a cylinder job recently but has otherwise been reliable. My father in law has a 2004 Beetle which I also drive; it's a lot of fun once you get used to not being able to see your own hood. The ESP adaptive anti-lock braking works quite well in the snow -- not sure what year they added that.

How many miles on your Golf?

Cool, thanks for the input.

The Golf has 80,000 miles. Our particular production run had some engine problems -- other people leaked lots of oil and got their cylinder jobs for free, but ours was borderline enough that we had to pay for it. But even counting that, the maintenance has been reasonable over the years.
