Better Than Most — I loooooooved this car. But I am a Bimmer fan. The second owner, and took great care of this car using only premium synthetics. Went on two road trips in this, and never ever has had an issue. I also changed out the lights, so those are new too!

Sporty, Economical, And Comfortable — Great reliable car, never let me down when I needed it. Inexpensive to service and I save money on gas mileage. Relaxing car to drive but still sporty enough to be fun. Braking and acceleration were nothing special but adequate and the handling was very good.

Awesome First Car! — I got this as my very first car. It's been reliable, except you need to bring an extra oil can inside your trunk. The turbo will burn your oil. The trunk is very practical and one of the best for the size. DSG Transmission and Pedal Shift is a must!!

A Beauty To Drive And Own. — Fast, drives very good. Computer chip changes the gear very fast. I got the car with 18K original miles and not it has little over 41K miles. All service done at Hillside Imports. It's where the car was originally done at. It also has an ipod dock as well.

Great Car To Own! — I've had this car for 100,000 kms and it's been good. I've lost a turbo and clutch but I've also had a few different drivers on this car. Maintenance can be costly but I've noticed that I have fewer repairs that need to be done. I've transitioned this car to my son now because I do trust it. Keep up the maintenance and it's wonderful.

Awesome — I loved this car!! When clean, it still looks like new, 8 years later? The only issue I have ever had is that it sounds like a truck because it is a diesel. In fact, sometimes people comment on the engine not knowing about diesels...

Great Car For Drivers — I have owned this car for three years after purchasing used. It has been reliable and low cost to own. Currently needs a Dual Mass Flywheel replaced. The recall for this issue skipped this particular vehicle as it was a 2007 model but sold/acknowledged as a 2006. I would buy another.

Big trunk, motor has a lot of torque.

Wish it was better on gas. Likes to eat light bulbs.

Fun Car To Drive — One of my favorite drives (which I've owned) of all time. It's quick and very responsive. Loads of trunk space and ample cabin room. I have never changed so many light bulbs on a car ever. Every once in a while a bunch will burn out one right after another and then stop for a couple of months then start burning out one by one all over again.

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
