2013 Volkswagen Golf / GTI Pros and Cons at TrueDelta: Best Car Ever by Chelle

Although a small exterior, the interior is roomy enough for my 6'2" boyfriend to comfortably fit for long drives and my 4.5yr old to be in a full car seat behind him while carring enough luggage for a week long trip. This vehicle has needed absolutely no repairs and since maintenance is only every 10k, even that is minimal compared to most. In ice I have been able to navigate unplowed and windy roads riddled with hills while maintaining full control over the vehicle effortlessly. In the warm dry weather it hugs the road and is an extension of the driver.

And don't forget the fabulous fuel economy. In Philly traffic I was able to get 28-32mpg and driving back from Cape Cod a phenominal 52mpg was obtained!!! Yes diesel is about $0.30 more per gallon, but I'm getting almost twice the mileage out of each gallon. SCORE!!!!

2013 Volkswagen Golf / GTI Love Letter

Although plain, Volkswagen is able to keep their models looking fresh years after purchase. The lines are subtle enough to with stand the years, and bold enough to not look like a box.


One of the best vehicles for the money that is a pure pleasure to drive. Heck, just this morning I bested a BMW on the road!!! And I spent far less initially and I will spend less on any repair than he will. WIN WIN!!!
