ReviewMaybe I got lucky, but bought my Golf for about $13k. 1-owner, highly maintained. It had 60500 kilometers on it (bought 2-yr warranty). Standard 5- sp, winter package, full climate control, ESP, powered sunroof, front/rear foglights, AM/FM/CD/Tape* (*removed radio/CD player and installed premium integrated system), bought deep housing to replace CD player-slot so I can drink coffee now and still play CD's I have driven from Bavaria to Sweden and all over Germany. Avg speed 190kph on autobahn, 100kph secondary roads and 50kph city. Avg 16km/L or about 37mpg hwy, 19-20km/L city Front wheel drive makes winter travel easy (snow/sleet/rain) Great visibility, sweet suspension/handling
Best FeaturesHeated seats, heated mirrors, ROOM! (took 4-beer racks, 4 foot-lockers, 2 bags of armor, weapons, 2 shields, food, cameras and 1 passenger to Sweden SCA event) adjust headlights, powered sunroof, foglights front/rear, full climate control, power headlight spray, keyless entry/alarm, full-size spare
Worst FeaturesNew radio option; The rear door speaker cutouts: poor placement for tweaters! Too shrill for the driver IMHO. Had custom install on back trunk panels. Limited room for sub, so went with KW sub under passenger seat. Poor radio/cd placement for coffee drinkers (maybe consolidate into 1 unit?)
