    Reviews:
    * Strong turbocharged engine; standard all-wheel drive; sharp handling characteristics; hatchback versatility; two- or four-door configurations; interior sophistication. Source: Edmunds
    * If you enjoy intelligent design, efficient operation, careful build quality and artful execution, the 2012 Volkswagen Golf should fit a wide range of transportation needs. Although not as entertaining as the turbocharged GTI derivative, both the 2.5-liter in-line five and 2.0-liter TDI have prodigious torque along with competitive efficiency. The GTI provides expressive performance within a practical footprint, while the new Golf R is almost explosive in its capability. The Golf design has proven timeless, boding well for long-term enjoyment and a reasonable return on investment. Source: KBB.com

      I bought this car for the gas mileage and price. I was pleasantly surprised by its quickness and handling. I look forward to keeping it until 200,000 miles if I can. The only bad thing so far, every once in awhile it seems like the battery has a short or something. The car may seem completely dead, take the keys out put back in and it’s fine, except tripometer resets and clock. Also, I can’t stand that lights don’t automatically shut off. I’ve forgotten a few times and had to jump it. Nonetheless, I get about 35MPG and fill up once a month.
    • Best Car Ive ever owned

      The has been the most reliable car Ive ever owned. Ive had it for 8 years 170+ miles and nothing major has ever gone wrong. All repairs have been routine except a tube that supplied washer to fluid to back wind shield sprayer cracked from age and needed to be replaced. It seats 5 but more comfortably 4. I drive a lot and find it a very comfortable ride. The light Blue color is Beautiful too, it never looks dirty. Like all Gulfs the rear hatch opens up to a huge space for a compact car. I put large pieces of furniture in the back to transport with no problem. This car was so well made I wish I could by it again
    • A Great Little Car

      By Keith on Saturday, March 27, 2021

      I originally bought this car because I needed a car in which I could fold down the rear seat and let my dog loose in the bag that was also economical. I could not quite afford the Jetta Wagon, so I chose the Golf. And what a great little car it has been. A sport tuned suspension combined with the rapid response to the steering wheel makes for lively handling. The ride is comfortable but with a stiffer suspension than most of its competitors you are more aware of imperfections in the road. However, the trade off is that the car recovers faster from hitting bumps and dips in the road. I am also able to drive at speed along winding roads without issue. In fact, I come out the other end with a big grin on my face. When I drive to Santa Cruz from San Jose, California, I frequently pass Mustangs and Corvettes on the mountain highway because they cannot handle the constant twists and hairpin turns. The car has held up well during the course of my ownership (I keep up with regularly scheduled maintenance). It being a hatchback has also meant that the car has proven to be very practical. While it is small, the interior does feel bigger than it looks (unless you are in the back seat). Fuel mileage is good for a five cylinder car and the engine is very quiet. I don't know what the professional reviewers are doing to their test cars to make them complain about engine noise but I only notice it when trying to accelerate quickly. And even then, it is still quiet. If I have a complaint, it is that the stereo has a limiter on it so that you cannot play it as loudly as I would like. However, that is a safety feature. I am guaranteed to hear sirens while still having it loud enough to hear every note in a song.
