Miss 8 " Err, small and good and I like the roof'
Ok, they loved it as much as I did. There were no complaints about the small back legroom, their only concern was that there were no window controls in the back. There are two passenger seats in the back, so they were sitting very close, but weren't fighting. They were too busy enjoying the wind in their hair and watching the world whoosh by.
Is this a car for a family? I want to say yes because I really want a zippy convertible. I have to say no because you can't pick up the kid's friends and boot space is quite small. BUT, if you have one child or are a two car family, then yes. I would want something like this as one of the cars because it is so much fun.
Any other points of interest? I think anyone beside me at the lights hate it and not just because I looked so much cooler than them. It's because they get to hear my singing. There is no buffer, I am loud, bad and out there.
See how cool I am

Conclusion: The Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet convertible drove well. I do not have any complaints about driving, braking, comfort, fuel consumption or safety. My only concerns were from a busy mother perspective, with only two doors, an awkward boot and limited space for extra people, bags and a dog it wouldn't satisfy all my needs. I really loved my time with this car. If I could pump it up by 20-25% I would beg and plead (read nag) my husband for it. I live in Queensland, we are born for vehicles like this.
