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.
2012 Golf TDI
2011 Volkswagen GolfTravelFool - N. Virginia12/27/2012
I have owned my Golf TDI for about 8 months. I am continuously surprised by the engine performance of this diesel car. I was expecting great mileage and handling - it's a VW after all. The acceleration however, was a complete surprise. This thing is a rocket! Fit and finish are excellent, although there is an odd bit of wind noise above 55 mph from the door area on the drivers side. We just experienced our first snow and I must say, this car is very sure footed. The ABS is there and available for sudden/panic stops but is otherwise not necessary. The diesel version is a bit pricy and while the price of gas has fallen recently, diesel has not. Still, the additional MPG outweighs the cost per gallon. Overall, I am very pleased and would encourage anyone looking for a fun economical car to consider the VW Golf TDI.

The VW Golf is in one word "amazing". The Interior is spacious, yet cozy and the exterior is beautiful as well.
