Golf GTI: used car buying guide - Introduction
For: Golf GTI is quick, stunning to drive and well built. You even get five useable seats and decent boot space.
Against: Pricier than rivals, and insurance costs aren't going to be cheap, either.
This iconic hot hatch is a used bargain. It's a joy to drive, reliable and practical – what more could you want?
What Car? used car editor Matt Sanger says…
'Car supermarkets stock a surprisingly good selection of well-priced cars – but beware: some will be grey imports, and naturally worth less than a UK car.
Avoid cars that have been modified or altered. Engine enhancements, non-standard body kits and bigger wheels may invalidate your insurance if you don't tell your insurance company.'
