It is super safe and super fun to drive a the same time.

People say it is so much more money to have to fix Volkswagens, but if you treat them like you would any other car, it is perfect. I have put 2000$ into my 06 gti over the last 3 years with over 130k and she runs beautifully. The brakes are really good, they have saved me a few times somebody stopped short in front of me. The turning radius and overall performance of the car is unbelievable, I plan on buying another gti when the time comes.

Euro cars are probably the best cars to go with.

It is super fun and safe to drive. It always amazes me with how short it can stop in certain situations. It is also pretty decent on gas. I may spend 45$ for a full tank, but it lasts 2-3 weeks. I haven't had to put too much money into fixing it either.

You can carry almost anything in it. I can even get a 6-7 ft Christmas tree in it!

Love my car! Back seats go down and I use it to haul things ( I am a gardener). Gets great mileage, 33 around town, 40 on the road. It is a diesel. It is small, but me and my grandkids are usually the only ones in it.
