Germans Got Something Right — the car is absolutly amazing in more ways than one. Power is unbelievable, handles like a dream for what it is, and interior is amazing for a car that originally 20,000

Excellent Commuter Car For Longer Distances — excellent mileage and handling with over 300,000km and counting. Definitely needs its maintenance done properly and on time.

It's A Good Car With Quirks — I heard that these cars have electrical issues and my car has lived up to the reputation. It's little things here and there, but a hassle nevertheless.

Vr6 — she's only got a 12v vr6 but you can still feel the vr power! she handles fairly well but still sits on stock suspension so it looks like an off road vehicle. i got rid of the stock status though and painted the tocattas gunmetal and textured the rub strips. painted the brakes pink (it's my gfs car).

Dont Buy Volkswagenn — Worst car I eve own. It cost me over 4000$ reparation in 4 years. Every parts broke up. They start to brake only 12 days of owning. The only positive thing of this car is that you can full the car every 2 weeks and it was a very confortable car and fun to drive. After this car I got a Toyota Echo. It was not confortable, but was never at the garage for reparation. I wll never buy back a Volkswagen for sure. I really enjoy the looking of those car, but it's not suitable.

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
