Pros

Fantastic car, has never really l let me down in 9 years

Cons

No dislikes, car is great

25

Worth Paying A Lttle Bit More For German Engineering. — Reliability, feeling safe, economy. Highly recommended. The previous qualities are all the things I require from a car. The car cruises on the motorway and for a diesel is very quiet with good acceleration when required. Car sill drives well with 180.000 miles on the clock, thinking about changing but I am reluctant to get rid of ... I may buy some trouble this car has spoiled me.

Pros

Reliability, Fuel Milage, Maintenance Cost.

Cons

99.5-2004 have the famous "Slow-Down Shudder" with the 5 Speed.

45

Yes. Yes. Yes. — Ridiculously long-lasting Diesel engine and reliability. Amazing fuel milage (50+ Highway, 45+ City) and (this is random) the most powerful and coldest A/C of any car I have ever been in. I have put $215 in repairs into this car in 10 years. I am getting another one.... uh...... Will someone please give me some money? :)

Pros

If i had more time to look for the car a i would of gone for the 130 bhp because i have read reviews on it, i was planing no getting to 150 gtitdi but got told theres to much power of the car the to take and dont go past 100k on the clock.

Cons

There not not much i dont like about this car i really love.

25

Once You Have Gone Vw There No Going Back! — Build Quality- Its a VW what more can i say. Performance- Its only the 115 bhp but its fast and dose its job for me and my family. Cost- These car are a hand full cars that hold there price.

Cons

high initial cost of ownership

Fun Sorty Hatch Back,... Even For A Diesel — its mine and its taken way past factory... but vw is a top company for a reason... as far as cost of ownership.. maintnece costs are high but few and far between. overall the diesel engine is worth the extra cash

White Trash By Shirley

best for smashing up cross-country until there is nothing left; not really fair to say it's 'Road worthy' (also as in I don't think this car DESERVES to be allowed on the road). Read More
