My dream car!

I had wanted Golf my whole life and now that I have it-it does not disappoint! It is SO much fun to drive and I have an automatic transmission! For being a smaller vehicle you can stuff a lot of things in it when needed.

Extremely practical car!!

This car is perfect as a daily commuter and city parking. Very practical and economical for student!! The hatchback is perfect to put things in and out .

Perfect for the city

I needed a car that would fit my lifestyle, which means traveling in Philadelphia most days. This car is so compact, yet fits groceries in the trunk and two people in the back seat. The apple car play is terrific!!
