So Much Fun To Drive! — Most people have problems with VW's but I never had problems with mine until about 83,000 miles. Seems pretty reasonable to me!

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.

Pros

One of the top MPG of any car on the road, and you don't have to drive in a tiny car.  All the things people love about driving a German car.

Cons

It's a German car.  It is not for anyone who likes to shy away from maintenance.

Oil Burning Jetta — This car is simply the most practical car on the market that will exceed 40 MPG. Wonderful German feel and build. Loads of torque from the turbo charged diesel engine. The engine is responsive and the handling feels solid. Plenty of interior space for a mid sized sedan, with a cavernous trunk.
