It's great on mileage. I can fill up my tank with around 40 and it lasts 2 weeks!

You need to know how to drive a stick shift. I can be very inconvenient as it takes diesel gas and where I live the gas is super expensive. It is very good on mileage though so that is definitely a plus. I feel like the biggest danger with this car is that it can be very hard to see behind you if you are a shorter person! I have difficulty seeing over my seat sometimes!

Gas efficient, reliable, and fun to drive!

My VW golf has about 150, 000 miles on it and it is still very reliable. So far I have had to replace the flex pipe w/ cat converter (an easy fix) due to an exhaust leak. But other than that, just normal, routine upkeep and tune-ups! It did have a pretty bad misfire, but changing the spark plugs/wires/coils fixed it immediately.

It is a fun car to drive for a low price.

I own a 2004 golf tdi. It has the 5-speed manual transmission so It's a blast to drive. Heated seats, sunroof, premium sound system, and it gets great gas mileage. It's getting older now so It's a nice vehicle to drive in the winter or park in a Walmart parking lot since it is not brand new anymore.
