Pros

Good on gas, long lasting.

Cons

Too many little (expensive) repairs.

25

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.

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?

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.

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.

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 :)
