Fun and Practical

ReviewThe VW Golf is a fun and practical car built for everyday driving. The 1.8T engine is peppy and delivers plenty of passing power while averaging around 28 mpg. Parking is easy and the VW can carry lots of luggage for its size. The car is probably less reliable than a Honda, but I haven't had too many problems. In the last 18 months, I have had few repairs. I replaced a brake light switch and headlight bulb. The driver's window fell down and was fixed at no charge (recall item). The door switch that controls the interior lights doesn't fully work, but I still have interior lights so I haven't fixed it. All other maintenance has been routine such as oil changes. I recommend this car.
Best FeaturesThe 1.8T engine is solid. It gets good fuel economy. I love the blue dash lights. The 5 speed manual transmission is good. It is a fun car.
Worst FeaturesIt needs a better radio.
