Pros

Gas mileage, looks, daily commute, student car

Cons

No turbo. :[ But that's the only reason.

The Only Thing I'd Change About It Is Put A 1.8t Tiptronic In It. That's It. — Everything. Comfortable OEM interior, drives nice, beautiful color, get compliments all the time on color, great gas mileage, cheap to own, for the most part. Learn to do repairs yourself. it's more fun that way. Over all, A++++. <3 Volkswagen.

Great all-round car

Cons

Lack of gadjets

Super Car And Great To Drive. Perfect For Anyone — Great performance even though I drove the 1.6. It has great comfort. Super smooth on the roads. Car is pricy at first and value drops quick on it. the car has good handling but it is too far off the ground making it at times felling as though you are driving a 4X4 lol

Great — Love this car, it's very nice! It is quiet, very smooth. It definitely rides better than my last car, but not much competition there.. I hope to have it for a long long time. Still I miss my Neon, but damn, this car is HOT!

Power,Looks,Customizations, basically everything

Cons

Slight turbo lag, small turbo.

I Love My Gli — Its amazing.Its pretty quick off the line and always turns heads. Got a few aftermarket parts on it. the only thing that sucks about it is that the parts for it such as tires,sensors, etc, are expensive as hell. It could have a bigger turbo, but other than that its amazing.....

05 Jetta Gli, Lagoon Blue — fun to drive, kind of a sleeper, sounds well tuned and then bag out of no where a over the top Blow off. haha A big fan of the carbon fiber hood that has been painted to meet up with the grill lines to make the car flow a lot better.

Kistlers First Car And Never Agian — the car is ok could be better mine is a 5 speed Manual which is nice. The inside is banging nice sound system, black leather is sweet. The outside looks like ass. The handling is nice for a front wheel drive car it hugs turns well. that is really the only good thing it is slow as hell and has no power

Recaro Seats, 6 Speed

I Loved Everything About It Till Some Jackass Crashed Into The Back Of It.... — From The Wheels To The Transmission This Car Is Great, The Only Thing VAG Could Have Done Is Built The Interior Better. I Loved The Car And Will Regardless Of If It Was Distroyed. It Handled Geat With The Koni Coilovers I Put In Over The Stock Suspension & The APR Chip Helps ALot.
