What does this car say about you?

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Like it.

Would you buy this car again and why?
I would buy the 2.0 tdi but would avoid 1.6 tdi it is gutless. It is transformed when the roof is down and becomes a lot more fun.

What are you likely to buy next?
Have already traded this car in for a Golf GT 2.0tdi cabriolet. As I just can't get on with the powerless engine.

What's it like to drive?
1.6 tdi is only slightly quicker than walking to your destination! Handling is ok but it lacks power needed for pulling away from corners.

What's it like to park?
Ok. Very difficult to see out of rear window not helped by roll bars but reverse sensors help.
