I'll make this short. This is the best
all-around car you will find. The car
is fun as hell to drive, looks good, is
practical (as most hatchbacks are), is
designed intelligently (for the most
part) and the build quality is great.
you wont get this much car for this
little money anywhere else. forget what
you think you should be driving
(especially inefficient SUVs), and go
to a dealer and take a test drive.
Power is more than sufficient. Handling
is good for all but the most
performance minded. My only complaint
is that some dealers are genuine jerks.
Reydel VW in Edison NJ is quite good.

Best Features

Looks, FUN TO DRIVE, dashboard lights, interior design/layout, hatchback, price (for the amount you get), turbo, isnt a gas-guzzler (though isnt that frugal either)

Worst Features

move the cup holders from the top of the center dash console. the radio, lighter and shifter are right below them, if anything spills). wheel for adjusting the seat angle is ok, not terrible, but could be better. gas mileage perhaps?
