Peppy, fun, practical. Scooter -- my fiance named her -- is a 5 speed manual transmission VW Golf 2-door with an upgraded sport suspension. Great cargo space, all-weather floor mats, cargo organizers in the trunk, heated seats, audio auxiliary input, hill start assist, Bluetooth, A/C, USB-c and lightening cables (and a USB adapter if you bring your own cables), FasTrak toll pass included. Small and easy to park, Scooter is perfect for both city errands but also spacious and sporty enough for day trips around the Bay Area -- we love taking Scooter up Highway 1 into West Marin.
The Golf, and Scooter in particular, is a great driving car that really punches out of her weight class. Whether driving on the highway or on winding mountain roads, you will think you are in a much bigger, more expensive car. She is the ideal car for a weekend trip or a long term stay in the Bay Area. I really enjoy Scooter, and I am sure you will too.
Scooter is for experienced manual transmission drivers only, please.
