I am enjoying my Golf GL very much! It's handsome, and the fit and finish inside is very nice. I found many of the other hatchbacks to have poor and cheaply fabricated interiours, but not so for the Golf. It has clever adjustments and is user-friendly all over. The safety features are super, and the fuel efficiency is excellent also. It has all the torque I need, tight handling, and the visibility from the driver's seat is very good. It does not have a 'small car feel', and is not cramped inside for me. All the instruments have sensible placement, and the stereo sounds super, too. I hope everyone else can discover what Europe knows all along: small cars are efficient, cute, fun, and economical! Less is more, and it's good for you and the planet!

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.
