Summary

4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
That I'm a girly girl!

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

Would you buy this car again and why?
No I don't think I would as I would be looking for a more economical car and looking at starting a family therefore the car would be unsuitable. I would recommend it to others though.

What are you likely to buy next?
I would like to buy another Volkswagen and am thinking about either a polo or a golf.

Driving it

3 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It is nice to drive but it takes a bit of getting used to because the front of the car and the dashboard feels very long (especially compared to my ford ka). It also seems to guzzle petrol on my commute to work (80 mile round trip) so I intend to get something more economical in the future.

What's it like to park?
Again it takes a lots of getting used to be caused of the soft top aspect of it and the window at the back is very small.
