It's a great car that everyone with a small family could use
After years (fine) in an Opel Corsa from 2010 to have driven, I thought it was time for a new and larger car (partly due to my current work). As a car enthusiast I like to drive in a beautiful and decorated car, but unfortunately the wallet did not allow that. Private Lease provided me with the solution. Because Volkswagen had a nice action on the Golf, I myself went into Private Lease to deepen. At first I wanted a new P.L. Order golf with the options I wanted, but I came across a stock model that provided all my options and more. Plus the fact that I could drive in the Golf within 2 weeks instead of 14 weeks gave me the decisive factor that I chose for the stock model. The extra options of the car, in addition to the regular Highline equipment: - Karlskoga 17 inch alloy wheels - Metallic paint 'indium gray' - tinted side and rear windows - Mirror package - Rear lights in dark red with dynamic lights (very nice!). - Headlight light LED Plus (very nice!) - Ergonomic driver's seat - Locking and starting system without key - Executive package (including navigation and alarm). Pros: The car drives delicious! Switches nicely, chairs are very good and the Led lighting provides an incredibly good view in the dark. The lamps rotate with the curve, which is really a plus on dark roads. In addition, the LED Plus headlights look cool, especially in day-row mode. The dark red rear lights with dynamic LED lighting is a nice gadget, but functionally it adds nothing extra. But for me as a car enthusiast it adds an extra dimension to the car, and that is also important. In the beginning I was afraid that the sports suspension (which is standard when you go for the Karlskoga rims) would be punitive and bumpy. This is a big deal. You obviously notice that it is at the expense of comfort, but not too much. And in addition: tight steering is also worth something. The mirror package is also nice. Mirrors clap in with the closing of the car, and in its rear window the mirror turns right down. Handy for parking in sidewalks. You do not want your beautiful rims to get scratched naturally. Finally, what I do not want to leave unnamed: the Active Info Display. If you have the option: check this option. Very nice to operate, it looks amazing and all info loud and clear. So far very happy with the exterior I have chosen: the combination of dark gray, tinted windows, Karlskoga rims, dark rear lights and LED Plus headlamps makes the car chic and sporty at the same time. Not too fussy, but where it becomes clear that this is not such a standard '' dopey '' Golf. Negatives: Slowly driving in his 2 is not optimal. The car then starts to struggle against, so you soon have to go back in 1. What is less pleasant for consumption. What is also noticeable is the condensation behind the headlights. Been to the dealer and there was nothing wrong. This was still within 'permissible'. Due to the LED lighting it also does not heat up quickly, so the condensation lingers a little longer. Furthermore, I also find the consumption is not optimal. With my Corsa I drove about 1 in 14.5 and with the Golf I was hoping to drive a bit more economically. Especially since I now have 6 gears instead of 5 in the Corsa. But it is a new engine, so what is not is yet to come. In short, after almost 7000 kilometers no hair on my head that regrets that I monthly transfer an X amount to the leasing company.
