"I've owned this car for 3 years, and it is my daily driver. I maintaing 38-42 MPG in the city and upwards of 50 MPG on longer highway trips. It's great for 2 people on a long trip, but wouldn't recommend it for more than that as the back seats are tight (especially for an average adult). Trunk space is above average for a small car, but wouldn't fit more than one large suitcase (i.e. 30" Samsonite), with some smaller bags around it. Back seats due fold down (split 60/40) if you need a little extra space. For some reason VW elected not to equip these vehicles with a CD player, but it has the premium "Monsoon" sound system with casette... The 5-speed manual gives the small 4-cyl engine enough zip for passing and acceleration, but as always its key feature is the fuel economy."

"I have had this car for 2 years, and it has been a constant nightmare. It has been in the shop ever since I got it, with different reasons such as the seats catching on fire (a recall which the dealership forgot to mention to us), breaking down in the middle of the road, multiple recalls, and huge engine malfunctions. Do not buy this car!"
