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.

The one most important thing that others should know is that we get really good gas mileage from our volkswagen.

Like our volkswagen for the room too haul stuff. Strong motor and good gas mileage. What I dislike is the ruff ride and only go certain places.

It has plenty of warning lights if something goes wrong or if you forgot to lock a door

I like the keyless entry. I like that it warns me that something is wrong with the car. I do not have any complaints

My Toyota corolla le has stood the test of time with very issues.

I do not like the size of the car and the hatchback style. I do like the quality and reliability of the brand.

it runs great even when it shouldn't

It's an older beater. bought it to get to and from work. will probably upgrade to a new vw in the next year

It has been a reliable car for the past 14 years but I bought it before we had kids and we have definitely "outgrown" it and need a bigger vehicle.

It looks small but it has a lot of cargo space. And the gas mileage is good.

- Sabina T

No complaints. I love my car. It gets great fuel mileage.

It's a diesel. I get about 600 miles on one tank of fuel.
