2014 VW golf gate is a great little family car.

2014 Volkswagen Golf

I get very good gas mileage. I love my seat warmers, and the plaid upholstery is really cute. The ultra low profile tires are a bit of an issue in the winter, I have to be careful if I am driving in heavy snow. The trunk space is decent overall but if I have my daughter's stroller in there I do not have room for much else. Her car seat fits comfortably in the back seat. The car has a really quick pickup which is great for merging on to the highway on a short entrance ramp. I like the Bluetooth feature so I can take calls hands free.

It is a very sporty car that is fun to drive!

2014 Volkswagen Golf w/Conv & Sunroof

We have only had issues with the fan for the air conditioning and tail lights burning out. The rest of the vehicle has performed well over the past 5 years. We have kept regular oil changes and checks on the car to ensure it keeps running properly. Never had any real issues with Volkswagen.

Golf's great performance!

2014 Volkswagen Golf w/Conv & Sunroof

My car has performed well for the 5 years that I have owned it. I have only had to perform maintenance procedures up to this point. Gas mileage is good relative to the cars performance. I like the loading convenience of the hatchback. It makes home depot trips much easier.
