    Transmission: Automatic Color: Red Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.75 (57 reviews) "I own a 4dr manual shift, black on black, bought it 4 years ago and it now has north of 67k miles. One of the few small cars that I can set the driver's seat to my comfort and then sit comfortably behind myself (I am 6'2"). It is a nimble car and fun to drive-great handling. I average about 52 mpg in the summer and about 46 in the winter. Dealer maintenance is a bit pricey but comes at 10k mile intervals. I have no trouble with blind spots or visibility-google how to set your mirrors to avoid blind spots. Good sound system, great brakes, good power, warms up quickly in the winter. New tires at 65k miles. Auto-down on all 4 windows. Have had no problems at all with this car."

    Transmission: Automatic Color: Silver Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.75 (57 reviews) "My Golf is a silver 5-speed manual TDI. It has never gotten anything less than 40-43 mpg city and on the open road, fully loaded with the A/C running it gets a respectable 52-55 mpg. I know this because I have tracked the mileage ever since I bought the car (new). Even when diesel is about 30% more than regular gas the 40% higher mpg (based on city mileage) compensates for the higher price of fuel. The car has been mostly trouble free - I had a broken fuel pump fitting at one point (fixed under warranty) and a problem with the glow plug wires at one point that was not well diagnosed by the dealer, and after replacing some of the system wiring and costing some money it didn't fix the problem until I took the car back again to the dealer - where they didn't replace any parts but somehow fixed the problem (the car was out of warranty by then, of course). The car has great torque up to a point but then it just goes flat - this is typical of diesels, you have to keep shifting to work the narrow RPM range. A fully loaded car performs very similarly to one that is lightly loaded. The engine has plenty of power. The car rides and handles well and is very comfortable - but it is a small car, so don't expect to pack it with 4 adults and luggage for a long trip. It is tight with two adults and backage for a long trip. It does not do well on back roads (low clearance) and the front wheel drive seems to lose traction on steep grades on unpaved roads or on snow and ice, but on snowy highways it does fine with cable chains. It has plenty of power in the mountains because it is turbocharged, but you have to keep the rpms up a little higher compared to lower elevations. Some of the interior features were poorly designed. The plastic hinges to the cover on the center armrest is underdesigned and have broken. The sliding plastic cover to the storage area in front of the gear shift is also poorly designed and the cover has slid forward into a void, never to be retrieved. The visors are too short to cover the side windows. The car is a hatchback and is very designed to be very flexible. The back deck covers the "trunk" when its in place. The deck can be completely removed and both seats fold down opening up the back like a small station wagon. Overall, I'm very happy with car."

    Transmission: Automatic Color: White Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.75 (57 reviews) "This car is a rocket! Handles tight, nimble and accelaration is spectacular! So fun to drive and great safety rating! Base model has more than enough options and the bluetooth is one of the clearest I have heard. Large touch screen, excellent backup camera that not only looks behind you but to side (180 degree view). Maintenance is easy, once every 10K miles. Trunk space is amazing. An other superior german-engineered vehicle for an excellent price!"

    Transmission: Automatic Color: Red Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.75 (57 reviews) "I have a 04 VW Golf TDI GL. I simply love the car the fuel economy is simply amazing (40 mpg real mileage). The car is reasonably quick (177 lb/ft of torque), it's no sports car but certainly is faster than anything that is in comparable fuel efficiency. Pros: Turbo Diesel, it is reasonably quick Very spacious inside, little bit of a squeeze for the back seats. Really great storage, I've fit a queen size memory foam mattress (folded) inside the cab. Ride is comfortable while giving firm steering. Cons: GL trim has steel wheels/hubcaps. Rear view mirror visibility is poor with the rear headrests up."

Spectacular Handling

2016 Volkswagen Golf Suzanne F - Pasadena, CA 11/06/2016
