Even though I think I'm set on the VW Golf, I'm open to recommendations. What would you recommend in this price range?
Get a Golf TDI. The fuel efficiency is amazing, you can go to NYC and back on a single tank. The engine has a lot of torque and is much funner to drive than a 2.0. The best TDI engine is the ALH, from 1999-2003, but the BEW (2004-2006) is also good. VW stopped selling TDIs here for a few years after that due to new emission standards, so there's no 2007-2008 TDI. Sucks...

Only thing is the demand for those cars are extremely high, so if you find a good deal you gotta act quick.
