Why the 2006 Volkswagen Golf?

Fuel economy

Excellent return with a higher than normal gas economy. This factor made the other deficiencies easy to overlook.


Very sporty and fun to drive. Light and nimble to drive making parking really easy.

Reliability & durability

We had a very high recommendation from a close friend regarding Golf and we are finding it to be exactly as stated. Solid and reliable, plus easy to drive. We are aware of expensive parts and service but we have not had any repairs to date other than tire

Insurance cost

Our insurance dropped lots as the rating is very good compared to our previous drive - a 5 series BMW. We switched cards mostly because of the insurance rating seeing that we have 2 learning drivers. Both new drivers are more comfortable driving this car.

This review was originally a two-car comparison review. Read the other half here.
