OK...tested the Protege5, Focus ZX3,
Focus SVT and PT Cruiser. Never
considered purchasing a VW and was
prepared to buy the Protege5 until a co-
worker insisted I test drive the Golf.
The test drive changed my mind! This
car feels much more substantial than
the other cars in its class. Handling,
brakes, and comfort are very good. The
list of standard safety features is
awesome! A very good value IMHO.
Fun-to-drive, handling, front seats,
brakes, safety equipment, Monsoon Sound
More horsepower, cupholders block
access to stereo controls.
