My Second Car — for a 4 door sedan it's got some punch. and it might not be a sports car but it can perform like one. there is a lot that can be done to this car. but as a daily driver it's a lot of fun.

Personally Love The Car No Matter What. — put it this way no matter what i dislike about the car it makes up for it in five other ways the car tells its oun story to each ouner i just think my jetta has been the best experience to me so far with a project car. DONT knock till you try.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Incredibly easy to park in small spaces and parallel park!
The car is super cute!

Cons

It is a small car so it isn't exactly meant for group road tripping. If ever you had to ride in the back seat for any distance it gets uncomfortable pretty quick because there isn't much leg room.

Super Cute, Clean Car That Serves Well As A High School Or Collage Vehicle. — This car carried me through some of the worst sleet, rain and snow storms you can imagine. It handles very well in any kind of weather. Truly the BEST vehicle for a high school or collage student who drives long distances. It is good on gas (though as it has aged , it has lost a few miles , but it is still good on gas) What I liked least about this car: It sits very low , which wasn't a problem until I had a baby. I still love this car, but it is NOT a family vehicle. However, it was a fantastic car to have as a single collage student !

Beauty — Its my first car and i absolutely love it to death, lots of power, very reliable, looks good. Its pretty average on gas, i get up to 450 km on a tank which isn't bad, but could be better. I strongly suggest it to all other people thinking about getting one.

Reliable German Car — You take good care of the car & the car will take care of U! Lots of fun to drive especially because of the manual trasmition: you are in charge, having full control on your gas millage & acceleration capabilities! Average gas millage is 22 miles per gallon in town & 33 miles on the interstate, pretty good for a V6 ;)

Excellent Deal For Mechanically Sound Car — The gas mileage for this 2000 Jetta is aound 30 miles per gallon with mileage being mostly highway. This car has been very reliable with minimal maintenance costs and to our knowledge is in excellent mechanical shape. It has never left us stranded and we rely on it as a second vehicle to drive to and from work (about 10 miles each way).
