A very happy VW golf owner.

Love how small and comfy this car is. The front seats folding makes it easy when I have more than 2 passengers to get in and out easily. A very good car for those looking to save in gas. Also wish I would have learned to drive in this car because you can easily see your surroundings and small enough to be able to park anywhere. But yet not too small that you are afraid of potentially getting smashed like a soda can if you ever get hit. Very well thought out design don't have any complaints besides doesn't come with free gas I guess.

It is a great car, despite it is little negatives.

I love my car. It is very roomy in the front and back seats. The back seats are spacious enough to have a car seat correctly in there without cramming the child up. However, I am having problems with my air conditioner cutting in and out and random times. For a couple weeks my car also got stuck in third gear but eventually it fixed itself.

Volkswagen golf: the ideal artists car.

This car is exactly what I was looking for in regards to storage space and gas mileage. It is cute, has so much space for art supplies, and it has been reliable thus far. It has decent air conditioning and the seats are nicely adjustable. It has automatic windows and is easy to get/stay up to speed.
