Pros

Fast, nimble

Cons

Not that great of a negative, but it only takes premium.

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.

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

Pros

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.

25

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 :)

Fun Everyday Car — Highly recommend to upgrade ECU and exhaust...mine Has Revo Stage 2 upgrades, fender mount cold air, 4 Bar fuel pressure regulator, Stratesphere Diverter valve, Eurospeed 2' downpipe and Magna Flow exhaust. It puts HP up to around 245 at 16-18lbs of boost...a lot of power for a 4cylinder. Prior to upgrades I had a lot of ECU problems, now just the typical coil pack blowing now and then. Plus I get 28-30mpg

I Absolutley Love It — the VR6 is a beastly 6 cyl motor and i love it. it has the most beautiful undertone and a snotty mean heart throne. my car is awsome. its pretty stock except for a neuspeed perf. chip, remus axle back exhaust, ported swiss intake box, and a badgeless grill.

Vw Jetta 2001 — The best car ever!! Will never buy a North American car as long as I can afford it...Gas can be a bit pricey when I put the pedal to the metal but it is worth it because she goes!!

Pros

German Engineered, Quality of materials and design, 1.8T, Modifications, Culture

Cons

Mechanical failure, so-so mileage, expensive repairs

55

German Enigneered. — My favorite car, VW should have refined the mechanical build though. A great german-engineered car with lots of problems though. The innovation at the time was great, as VW introduced the 20v 1.8T. However I experienced many mechanical problems, mostly with the automatic 01m transmission (notorious for railure), and electrical. Had to replace tranny twice within a year. I loved the community surrounding the mods of vw's though, and the mk4 had endless tuning options. Car was overall a sleek simple looking one too. Interior is simple enough to be elegant. Handling was okay, pretty normal for an econobox.

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
