The Golf R is a fun, zippy, convenient car to run errands or even to take out for a weekend drive. The 6-speed manual transmission gives you full control and the driving experience that automatics just don't. I am sure you will enjoy every minute of it!
Things to know:
- To put the car in reverse press down on the shifter and move to the left and forward - The car has hill assist which means that the car won't roll backwards when starting on a hill, so no need to fuss with the handbrake.
- I have a bike rack and ski rack available for this car. If you would like to use ether of them please let me know and I will install it for your trip.

The idea of driving a small, nimble, all-wheel drive manual car in the twisty back roads around SF... well, let’s just say that this is the perfect car for it.
As I browsed Turo, I thought how great it would be to drive a GTR, or even a Viper for the day, but I couldn’t help but think how much better suited this car was for the task. It’s small, agile, with plenty of power to have some fun.
Also... it has anti-roll for the steep hills. 👌 for SF.
