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.

Best Car To Own — cheap on fuel, goes fast, fast, cheap to fix, and doesen't need that often, looks good, feels good, and is fun to drive. Starts good in the winter. My last one I sold at 600,00K, and still running well.What more could anyone want?

Pros

German engineering, stiff suspension and 140 top speed.

Cons

High repair costs, shotty transmission, understeer is an issue.

Great Touring Sedan, Keeps Up With The Rest, And Solid Build Quality. — Massive amounts of understeer, turbo takes forever to spool, gearbox too loose; can outshift the synchros if youre not careful. On the bright side, the build quality was excellent. The weight is perfectly balanced front to rear, so front end dipping was minimal and the rear end rarely slips out of place.

2001 Vw Jetta Review. — I like the car as far as looks and stuff. But I think the quality of the isn't that good. I mean the plastic peals inside, and it as a wird crayon smell. It also doesn't accelerate fast enough but, what doe's one expect from a four cylinder engine.

Amazing ! <3 — Acceleration is pretty good and Handling is amazing. The appearence of the car is very nice love the interior. It runs on 91 or 94 octane so the tank is probably about 50-55 bucks with the gas prices these days.

Techno Warp! — I have the manual turbo, which makes it lots of fun to drive. I got it at 120,000 miles, and had to replace the timing belt (something I knew at the time) and my catalytic converter went out shortly after buying it (I so won't replace it until next year, though.), but other than that it hasn't given me any problems. It's also a very good looking car after it's been washed.

Its snazzy looking, besides the dent in the front from the tree :(

Cons

It breaks every 5 minutes, and sucks up oil like its its job.

Decent Car — I like this look of the car, and the accessories, but theres always something wrong with it, and the costs of repairs are expesive. It is fun to drive i guess, speakers work great, and its a comfterable car. Its an okay car.. but i would suggest a newer one because 2001's break to much :)
