Almost Love — Really like this car, you never have to worry about having enough power going up hills or passing trucks because this little bunny has a lot of kick. The only annoying thing I've noticed is a bit of a delay from a full stop when you hit the pedal. Build quality is solid, independent suspension is great, you can really hug the corners. It's practical too with a lot of space in the rear hatch. As everyone says, fuel economy could be better but it's a trade-off between mileage and power.

Nothing

My First New Car — I am a believer in the quality of German engineering. The car came on a boat over to the USA from Germany. This car has everything I was looking for. Even better, the dealership didn't try to pull one over on me. The gas mileage is fantastic.

Good on gas, warms up fast in the winter

Cons

Trunk requires a lot of oomph to close

Perfect 2nd Car — Great little city car. Warms up really fast in the cold Canadian winter! Has enough get up and go for daily driving, but certainly isn't a performance car. Great on gas - it takes regular. The back hatch requires a lot of effort to close it properly - there's been several occasions I've had to get back out to close it properly.

Wish I could afford an Audi A3!

Great In Every Way. — This precise German assemblage has been thoroughly thought out. Very spacious interior. Super easy to park with an outrageous turning radius. The engine is a perky 2.5, which lets you shred when you feel like it. My favorite thing: pressing the VW emblem to open the trunk! My only regret is that the Audi A3 seems so much more alluring: a Rabbit with all-wheel drive and F1 racing clutch. Wish I could afford it!

Pros

i bought this car for my son. he was looking to replace his corolla and that is what we were focused on.  I never was a fan of a hatchback look so never would have considered it. it was on the lot and we gave it a test drive. That is all it took!  This car is fun to drive. Peppy, handles well, smooth ride! I am jealous.

Cons

for me it is a little to low, my son likes it and thinks my camry is too high.  Myson complains about the higher cost of the oil changes

Zippy Surprise Ride — One test drive and you will see. great pick up, easy to merge onto highways, just enough cargo space and the back seat is comfortable. This car feels solid on the road even in the winter in upstate ny. I am thinking of getting one for myself.

Primary Use: Commuting to work
