    That’s a low price, in good condition it’s worth about £2300 and in poor condition about £1800 for a private sale, that’s with an average mileage of 70,000. Either your mate doesn’t know its value or there’s a problem. Whatever you do, get an hpi check.

    I am in Aussie land so I cant comment on the money BUT I can comment on the car. This model had problems with the door window cables.They did bring out quite a good fix for it. & the gearboxes get noisy..from new.. Once they were o/hauled they were ok. But other than those things this model is quite a strong car. If the price is right & you have some history on the vehicle you should be OK Good Luck & Come & visit us aussies some time!

    That’s not a bad price, so long as the mileage isn’t through the roof (100k+). The 1.4 has a hard time pulling 1200kg of Golf around though, so check the engine isn’t too noisy or smoky. Also check out all the electrics work. Golfs are quite bad for things like central locking and leccy windows going haywire, but other than that, they’re generally OK.
    For a car at that price it may not be worth getting a full mechanical inspection done, sometimes these cost upwards of £150, although you’d get a good professional opinion for that. A good way of checking a car’s basic condition is to take it for a MOT, which only costs about £50. That will test all the basics like brakes, steering, exhaust etc, and you’d have the reassurance of a year’s ticket too.
