Great Volkswagen car, never would give it up.

It is a great car, beautiful and drives well. The four door feature is great, as are all of the in-car features. I have had no maintenance issues and taken this car on several long road trips. Brakes, speakers, tires, lights all work amazingly! Never want to give this car up.

- Alyssa M

That it is a manual stick shift car with 5 gears.

I love how smooth the ride is, how gas efficient it is, and the sleek look of the car. The radio and Bluetooth connection is wonderful. I do not like how costly parts can be but overall this is an extremely reliable and affordable car.

- Lucas M

Good gas mileage and reliable.

The back tire guards are very loose always have to be tightened. Bulbs generally do not last a very long time. Sometimes problems with the computer dash signs.
