Read all the negative reviews you want: this car is phenomenal for the price range. Sure there are the small problems (windows falling in doors, etc) but the warranty covers them all...buy it used, chances are the problems have already occured and been fixed. The car looks great, the interior feels like a high end model, and it is a blast to drive this lil' guy. The monsoon sound system is great and all the interior goodies are awesome. I bought this with a little over $30,000, and man, it still feels brand new and a good amount of the warranty still remains. Highly recommend.
Awesome interior, the best in its class. Fun to drive, tons of features, and unique VW styling. Safety features second to none in its class.
Tight rear legroom, and with the seats up, the trunk isn't very spacious. Can't really fit a set of golf clubs back there without some work.
