In 1984, the second-generation Volkswagen Golf appeared in North America, with big shoes to fill. It grew in every direction, and was available with five doors as well as three. The engine range grew bigger, too; the basic engine was a 1.3-liter gasoline four-cylinder, while the GTI had a 1.8-liter four-cylinder. Later versions of the GTI had a 16-valve version of the same engine, and so more power. The 1989 facelift of the car gave it bigger bumpers, although these didn’t appear in the US until 1990. Haynes has an extensive range of Volkswagen repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. The Haynes VW Golf repair manual is here to help you through every stage of servicing or fixing your car.
