1995 Volkswagen Golf Reviews

This car is a must to maintain. Not just your regular oil changes but you also need to make sure to keep every electrical connection nice and clean or check engine light will start going off everywhere. After you do this car runs excellent. Changed too many goot sensors not realizing it was connections. Changed all wiring and now keep everything clean, Once a month. Car runs great after this.
