Love It — easy to dump money into and make fast. reliable for the most part. love the heated seats, wish i had a gli for the 6 speed. sorta cheap to add performance, more power then a 6 cyl with the fuel economy of a 4 cyl

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!

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

So your car takes premium and gets 35 mpg? Diesel costs the same or less than premium and this car gets twice the mileage, meaning you use 50-60% of the fuel costs. I'm a long distance commuter, a... Read More
