My Golf has been excellent the past 5 years. I have driven it long distances out of state and never had any problems with it. It is comfortable driving at fast speeds on the highway and can manuever tightly in a pinch on city streets if necessary.
I get comments from people that see the interior of the Golf for the first time that they didn't think it would be this roomy inside.
Two things that bother me:
The crank knob for reclining the seat is not easy to use, a hassle on road trips when you want to rest. Not only do you have to crank this thing all the way down, but you have to crank it all the way up too! Good thing I don't have arthritic wrists!
Also, the drink holder is right in front of the mouth of the CD player. In order to put a CD in you have to take the drinks out of the cupholders.
Wonderful & always a fun to drive

It's a great hot hatch with great speed great looks and great sound. Fast but subtle. and still enough room to load it full of what ever you want. it has surprisingly more room in the back than than a sedan or hatch Subaru wrx. It's way more comfortable to sit it. Much more supportive seats and much nicer interior than a wrx. Lastly it's rare.
