It's Fun To Drive. — I love how it handles. It has some mod cold air intake so it rattles sometimes. I love how it shifts. It looks good. It gets decent mileage..but it's very expensive to fix. I LOVE THIS CAR. I think i'll own VW's from now on :)

I Love It. — I love the handling and the acceleration. If anything breaks its never mechanical. It is stylish and gets great gas mileage. To repair things its a bit expensive. This car is crazy fun to drive too. I love my car and I wouldnt want it any other way

Vr6 — she's only got a 12v vr6 but you can still feel the vr power! she handles fairly well but still sits on stock suspension so it looks like an off road vehicle. i got rid of the stock status though and painted the tocattas gunmetal and textured the rub strips. painted the brakes pink (it's my gfs car).

It's A Love/hate Relationship With The Car. — This car is probably the best car i have ever owned, but it has had more little idioctic problems then nessary. And because its foreign it makes the repairs difficult at times to manage. But overall, Jetta is where its at.

Dub P V Dub — Great performance far more than a car this size should have. Good build, great base for aftermarket mods of all sorts on the exterior. Low costs all around as long as you don't crash it. And it is far more fun than it would seem.
