Pros

5 Speed

Cons

Cost

Fuctional — Sound System after market 2X12'' subs and aftermarket Ram Air intake. The Car is awesome because it has a 5 speed transmission which is a riot to drive. Also the back seat is just big enough to have fun in if you need a place. downside the car is small for long trips for more than 2 people.

Pros

Car has amazing amounts of power for a family car

Cons

If you looking for massive amounts of power, get american muscle

45

Lots Of Fun But Not A Muscle Car — Amizing amounts of torque and power with little modification. Some clear coat peeling on front grill and hood. Even with more than 200 horse power still gets about 30 miles per gallon of gas. Car interior is immaculate for being 9 years old

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

Cons

unreliable

2000 Vw Jetta Gls 1.8t — i love the car to death, but it keeps freaking breaking down. i wouldn't reccomend this car to ANYONE that isn't a mechanic...you WILL be working on it a lot. My favorite feature is that this car will outrun a 2004 and older mustang GT and get 25 mpg doing it...but it is not a gas saver under any circumstances. it's a cheap thrill. but i've been through a lot with mine...im kinda attatched to it

Great power, smooth ride

Cons

Plagued with problems.  

55

Vr6, Powerful Engine. — Great power but plagued with problems from the start. Had many issues with ABS, ASR, steering rack, transaxle and windows. Love the car but the maintenance problems gave me second thoughts about buying another. My GTI on the other hand had no issues over four years that I've owned it.

Commuter Car — This has been a great commuter car for me with decent fuel mileage. My cost of ownership has been very low, besides a few minor electrical issues that I am dealing with. Looks and style of the car still look great over 10 years.

The Good Average — In being a true VW fan, i adore, the goods and the bads. Yes it dfoes have some issues, due to miscare from previous owners, but now, its all rebuilt, working like a charm. For the bigest downside, all the damn rattle 'n' squeaks
