I drove from Vermont to Connecticut to get my zippy, zooming Volkswagen golf.

Overall, I love my 2010 VW golf. It is very comfortable, rides smooth, and has a great turning radius to name a few of its great features. I have the two door 2. 5L version and the engine feels sturdy. Rear visibility is not the car's most valuable asset; when driving on the highway it is sometimes difficult to see out the back, especially when checking to pass. This makes for a pretty significant blind spot, but it is manageable. The golf is equipped with Bluetooth hookup and calling, however, if you are driving above 40-50 mph it gets muffled for the person on the other line. But, it still has Bluetooth calling! Overall, great car.

Volkswagen golf's are very comfortable, reliable daily cars.

The car is very smooth and easy to drive. It is reliable if you are willing to maintain it, but once it hits 100, 000 miles, you have to be willing to put more work into the car because various gaskets start to leak oil. The car looks small on the outside but is actually very spacious with 5 seat belts and a spacious trunk. It is relatively quiet to drive, and has heated seats as a bonus. It also gets relatively good gas mileage for both city and highway driving.

Reliable, easy, Jetta with more room.

It is a used car and I bought it when it already had over 100,000 miles on it. That said, I really love Volkswagen and had a Jetta previously. What I love about the golf is that it gives me just a little extra room and trunk space for trips, projects, etc. I have had it for nearly two years now and all I have had to do is replace the tires once. Very low maintenance car, haven't had any issues at all, and if you treat it right, you can get really great mileage.
