My VW Golf by Sarah on 02/08/2011. Trim: 1995 Volkswagen Golf GTI, Owned 6 years.
Pros: Handling is great. Acceleration is fast and impressive (speaking for the 5 speed). Looks really nice compared to others in this category, like Civic. Back seats are roomy. Trunk is pretty big. I have successfully taken four people and all our things camping in this car. I usually get just under 600 kilometers to a tank, in the city, which is pretty good.
Cons: Cup holders are weird. They don't allow clearance for anything much taller than a pop can or disposable coffee cup...so forget fountain drinks. The driver's seat is uncomfortable for long drives, not sure why, could just be that something's broken in there.
Overall review: Love this car. I have to admit, I DON'T take good care of my stuff. Including my car. But I have driven her nearly every day for five years, and she's still reliable as ever. Oil changes and tune-ups aside, I've only ever had to get new tires and brakes, which will happen to any car, and most recently, my head gasket is having issues. But, for a older car, I'd say she's been great. She's never left me stranded. I definitely would recommend this car. Someday I hope to buy another VW.
