Pros

German engineering, stiff suspension and 140 top speed.

Cons

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

35

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.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

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.
