great family / sporty car

ReviewThis golf is a sporty, fun car and also handles family needs. Although it is not huge, it holds up to four people w/good headroom and a large hatch area. We often choose it for family road trips over my wife's midsize SUV. The turbo engine is great, easily rivals honda for vibration free power and has much better torque for city driving. I thought the base suspension was comfortable but too soft so I switched out the springs and shocks for GTI-style handling. Also, the interior is very well done for a car in this price range and it is very quiet on the highway.
Best FeaturesTurbo engine, good mileage without sacrificing performance.
Worst FeaturesTwo recalls were inconvenient, but fixed at no charge. base suspension too soft.
