VW Golf Mk2 GTI 16V Troubleshooting List

Having purchased my 1989 Volkswage Golf GTI 16Valve there were a few jobs that I identified when inspecting the car before purchase and during the test drive as well as items declared in the advert. There are also various faults & trim issues that have come to light having worked on the car and used it for a few weeks. It might sound like a massive list but you have to bear in mind that the car is 25 years old with 177,000 miles on it - far younger cars have more serious faults!

I've listed below all the major and minor items both mechanical and trim that I've noticed that will need attention and over time will mark off the list as the jobs are completed. I've now created a separate page with the progress on the job/maintenance list

  • Cold starting problem
  • Rough running and lack of power
  • Cold starting idling rough
  • Missing rear badge
  • No mats
  • Drivers seat bolster worn, side cushion degraded
  • No radio
  • Dashboard rattle
