2001 Volkswagen Jetta Vr6 — This was probably the best driving car I have owned. It was fast and held the corners like glue. The sweet German transmission was smooth as silk.......until the differencial locked up and exploded......the only problem with this car was that it was very unreliable and was expensive and a pain to fix.

Its fun to drive nature

Cons

i hate the expensive cost of ownership

25

Great For People Who Have The Money To Maintain And Keep It Fun To Drive — Its a awesome car but maintenance wise very expensive. Its fun to drive even tho its automatic. Build wise the car is a solid vehicle especially nice when in tip top shape. Its very comfortable with the heated leather seats especially in winter weather.

Pros

The power, the turbo spools quick and the torque keeps you in your seat.

Cons

Not having enough time or money to keep modding it

Tdi....nuff Said — The stock performance is OK, but the tuned performance is unreal. Braking is ok for stock. The build is well VW, they are number 1 for a reason. Love the 99-04 body style. The cost of ownership is well for me $$$$, mods cost money...lol. I LOVE MY TDI!!!!!!!!!

Das Auto!! — This is a great old car. Still reliable. Great Quality and performs well. It has required very little maintenance and only regular spring and fall tuneup. It's been a great little car to drive. With just over 121,333 KMs it's not even broken in. I love the colour of my car....Baltic! Not blue, not green.

Easy To Tune And Cheap To Fix If You Know What Your Doing — This car is great! Terrific daily driver in an economic recession. If you need to get up and go she will make sure your wish is granted. Easy to tune and build. Requires money and OEM parts but in the end she is looking clean and fresh.

I can make it to Vegas and back to LA in one tank of gas!

Cons

Nothing sucks!

My Red Baron! — it is a great vehicle. German engineering at its finest. The Wolfsburg Edition with the 1.8T maybe small, but the power the car has is quite surprising!!! Very fun to drive and great on acceleration, braking and handling on curves!
