I like a modest vehicle that isn't too flashy. Something small and nimble that doesn't try to make a statement about the one driving it. The Golf had a certain elegant simplicity, without being sort of dowdy, like a lot of commuter cars are. On the other hand, they aren't as common as a Honda Civic, so it doesn't have the feel that you're driving in the lowest common denominator vehicle. The 2005 Golf has a manual gearshift, which I enjoy. I personally love driving stick, since it enhances your feeling of control over the vehicle and lets you add a little to the acceleration as the circumstances to demand. Power doors, windows, side mirrors are all there. It has cruise control, which I've grown more reliant on, so I don't have to monitor my speed as much during a longer drive. The inte... (more)
Story
When I had my kid in the car for the first time driving down PCH. She was delighted that she could see over the dash for the first time and better enjoy the view.
Pros
Manual gears, cruise control, nimble controls, and multiple cup holders.
Cons
This vehicle doesn't have a whole lot of "get up and go." You have to up-shift at pretty low speeds, but there's plenty of wiggle room concerning what your preferred speed once you're in second or third.

2005 Volkswagen Golf - VW still means quality

Based on recent events you would expect the brand Volkswagen to have lessened in quality from it's prestigious aura. Despite the emissions scandal in the diesel cars, the gasoline powered golf has been nothing but good to me. Although the parts and repair can be expensive, the frequency of malfunctions is very low. The car is good on gasoline, and runs smooth, even 11 years and 160k miles later. The AC still blows cold, the electronics work, and the factory radio still plays LOUD!
Story
Having a hatchback has allowed me to fold the seats forward and transport many suitcases for long fun road trips.
Pros
Some of the best features of the VW golf are the great quality of engineering first off, the lifetime of the parts themselves (11 years, barely anything malfunctioned.) Also the high mileage per gallon on gasoline.
Cons
I'd say the only real con is the cost of repairs when they are needed. Although it is rare, when you do need to do a repair, the parts and labor is usually double that of an American car. Small sensors that would run you $5 normally will run you $30 or more at times. That being said it should still not deter anyone from buying a European automobile.
