Pros: Trunk is huge, great pick up and very dependable.
Cons: The cloth on seats is not as durable as the rest of the car.This is my 4th Golf in 25 years and I still love the car. It still looks brand new after 6 years and 69000 miles. Never have had any problems.
Pros: I don't have one particular feature, I love everything about this car.
Cons: The cup holders and the wheel to recline the seats.
Advice: I would recommed this car for anyone who is a sports enthusiast. I put my bike and kayak on the car and travel all over.I commute to work and do 120 miles a day. The Golf handles the road like a porsche, very tight on the curves, even at a high speed. I never hesitate when making a move. I get roughly 32 to 34 miles per gallon on highway driving. The interior has all the comforts of home, except for the cupholders, that would be my only complaint. Unfortunately, I was in a serious accident with my 2002 golf and the car was totalled but I walked away without a scratch. I am so happy with the golf, within 10 days I was driving a new 2004 golf, same color, same interior, no hestitation in knowing a good car when I see one. You get a lot of standard options, that you would pay for with other vehicles.
