Car is white love the color love way it drives has a great amount of trunk space.

We just bought the car and I love every bit of it no problem its small good on gas and great for a family of 5 I have 3 kids and we fit perfect. Only take $30 to fill the car up and you can drive on the car for a little over a week and these cars last forever of you take care of them.

Great mileage! It is so much fun to drive since it is small.

This car is a blast to drive! It is diesel and gets amazing mileage! It only took one tank, which was $35 to go 525 miles. That was amazing! I can go two weeks on one tank in town and is about 325 miles. I have only had this used car for a few months but I want to keep it forever.

Unfortunately it is on Its last legs and will soon die

Peppy. It's tight, handles well and is small enough and yet spacious to haul stuff. I love the VW

Safety Recalls (1)

Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
00V280
Summary:
On certain passenger vehicles, one of two brackets used to bolt the front suspension control arm in the front of the vehicle to the body structure may have been inadequately welded. The control arm could gradually loosen and ultimately separate from its bracket in normal driving which could cause the vehicle to be difficult to control or result in loss of control.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will inspect the bracket and if the welding is insufficient, will replace the control arm. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began during September 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact VWoA at 1-800-822-8987.
