2010 Volkswagen Golf 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 6A)


I have the 2010 2.5L 3-door gas version and it is excellent. It is very practical, spacious, and fast. I got mine used for 6,500 less with no mechanical defects whatsoever. Even with only 3 doors, there is still plenty of space in the back for passengers.

It does come standard with heated seats, AC, electric door mirrors, electric windows, two 12v charging slots, and an AUX IN port for your music playing device. The radio is very good and weather resistant. Build quality is very good. Nothing feels cheap or out of place.

Even though mine has only 170 horsepower, it can still overtake pretty much anyone and anything on the road. Acceleration is very quick and the noise isn't too loud.

Best Features

-Performance (especially in S gear) -30+ MPG (depending on how you drive) -Heated seats -Comfortable ride -Radio -Spacious trunk for groceries and things -Very cool AC system

Worst Features

-Key doesn't open passenger door within two presses. Often have to press it more than once. -Trunk release isn't immediate nor does it always unlock when the rest of car is. -Onboard computer interferes too much in "manual" mode. Very arbitrary and erratic.
