Fast, easy maneuvering, low to the ground. Maybe 35+ miles to the gallon
2005 Volkswagen Golf GLS
Owned car for about two and a half years- third owner. Car runs great, but does sometimes require somewhat expensive maintenance as a 14 year old vehicle. In my possession, car tires have been replaced twice, oil pan replaced, fuel pump and associated parts replaced, battery replaced, rear brakes done. Electronics seem to be on their way out.
It is a 4-door hatchback, which makes it one of the easies cars for moving awkward or bulky items. This is my 2nd golf and I'd buy a third when the time comes.
