Hey everybody! I have a GOLF! *everyone shrugs or pretends not to hear you*

Brakes are a bit snatchy. Turning radius could be better. Folding down front seats is difficult. CarPlay can be a bit buggy. Only 5,700 miles on it so far, so it's practically new, but can already tell that the car will need a brake service in the near future to fix the natchy brake issue.

the lovely Volkswagen golf wagon

I bought this car brand new and have had no issues. The features in the car are perfect, automatic windows, apple carplay one of my favorites and a wonderful backup camera. It is very reliable I've had zero issues with starting or needed to use the car long driving

I like that it is AWD, big enough for gear and dog and reliable.. I do not like that is automatic and a little slower than i'd like..
