Great Car — Overall I love this car, however I do wish I would have sprung for the 1.8T or the VR6. With a miserly 115 hp this is not a performance car. I do like the pick-up it has in the 65-80 mph range. It's the 0-60 pick-up I wish I had more of. The interior is roomy enough and decently laid out. I don't like the Soft-Touch interior, it is rubbing off. The 2.0L engine "used" oil (1 qt per 100 miles) which was enough to ruin my engine over the first couple years I owned it. I had new rings put in to solve the problem, no more used oil...oh, and switched to synthetic at about 100K miles. Gas mileage is adequate, about 28-30 mpg highway. Which is nice because the cost of repairs seems to be slightly higher than other cars.

Fun to drive. Lots of little things (amenities)

Cons

Someehat expensive parts

Great Car — I had some issues with it and eventually had to get rid of it, but it was a great car and i miss it very much. If you get a VW, you have to be ready to deal with people not knowing how to work on it or not willing to.

2000 Vw Jetta Glx Vr6 — Vr6 is a great engine. lots power whenever you want it. be prepared to replace water pump and timing chain after 100k miles though... and body style is pretty sexy too. lots of fun to drive.

Pros

Fuel Mileage, reliability

Cons

Handling, FWD

Great Car, Fantastic Mileage — Purchased in August 2005 with 245,900km on it. Currently, July 2008, it has 411,500km on it. Reason I bought the car was for the fuel mileage. 1200km on 55Litres is too good to pass up. Because of the torque, it pulls like a freight train on the highway, and will surprise many cars. Couple things, I wish it was RWD, and I'd like it to handle like a MINI. Can't have everything though!

Fast Car But Too Many Engine Probs — I had fun with this car while it lasted, too bad the tranny, alternator, water pump, oil pan, bushings in the tie rod end etc went just too many probs and too expensive for parts

Pros

Good feel, responsive engine, sleek interior, smooth ride, all around quality ride

Cons

Some plastic cosmetic parts pron to breaking, the 2.0L could have more power compared to Mazda 3 or Subaru Impreza.

Great Car For A Everyday Driver And Beginner Performnce Seekers — great car for an everyday driver or someone looking for some kick to their ride. Even simply being a 2.0L 115 HP engine, it still give a good amount of kick hen the pedal is pressed. The 1.8T engine is perferred, but also a higher base price. but roughly receiving 25 MPG city and 30 MPG highway, and German engineering and reliability, its great for anyone looking for a good time without burning too much of a hole in their wallet.

I'm Trading To A Diesel Beetle Ragtop So I'm Sad To See It Go! By Michael
