Well Worth The Investment. — Love getting almost 600 miles on ONE TANK! Acceleration is good thanks to the turbo. Brakes are awesome, stop on a dime, which is good because this car ride smoothly and you will be cruising above the speed limit before you know it. Very little wind noise, handles like a dream in gusting winds too. Lots of leg room in the rear. Fuel miser, low maintenance and fun to drive. Sunroof and premium sound system rock! Your teenager will fight you for he keys!

Pros

great little car that full fills all my needs

Cons

not as good in gas mileage as the older cars

25

Nice Little Package — rides great but I have noticed the gas mileage is not as good as my old 1996 golf probably due to the fact of another cylinder and heavier. IT still feels nimble and quick. Has lots of nice features that I like and it seems well made.

Its A Jetta — Performance- Needs to be faster. Build Quality- It's actually pretty solid. Appearance- Too girly for me... Cost of Ownership- It's pretty good on gas. 30 mpg city. Fun Factor- You can stand on it in the rain and burn through 4th gear ;)

2006 Bat Outta Hell 2.5l — It performs excellently. Its a sexy car, black paint w/ crome, black leather, cant go wrong. gas mileage is great, a full tank(14+gallons) is about 450+miles. Drives great, wicked fun car to drive and putting that pedal to the floor will never get old.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Fuel Econ!

Cons

Clutch,Cams, Rear brakes

25

My Vw Jetta Tdi — Its a good car to get around and alot of fun if you get it chipped but no matter what you do (chipped not chipped) you need to plan on replacing the rear brake pads often, the clutch needs replaced to a better higher torque rated clutch and the CAMs. And that is if the rest of car is in good shape. VW cheaped out on these items or even worse these items are design flaws! Fuel is pretty easy to find and you can make your own and it is easier than you think.

150bhp Tdi Engine — NIce body sharp and colour, Nice build Quality, reliable, cheap running cost, just little bit slow. normal TDi ENGINE is not fast enough for this car, should get myself a 150bhp TDi ENGINE. more powerful and much faster. and if next time I need a car to replace this one, I will get myself a nice 4X4, haha.

Cool And Somewhat Good Looking — Very fun to drive in in sport mode. very eco with 57.5 MPG! that alot for a car that can go 156 MPH. very cool looking too just needs a body kit. I get this cat when I'm 15 1/2, but for now I drive on the back roads.

The Yetta — good starting car, i really love it. the looks are great. interior is nicely done, as well as the exterior. the braking is really good, and it excellerates well. the shifting is smooth, and the manual mode is pretty sick. overall its a really nice car to start out with

Incredible Car. Love It — i like the handling but it could use a little more horsepower. havent had any problems just scheduled maintenance. its a fun car. the car will save you money in the long run because of the diesel which will run longer and get you 40-50 mpg.
