Pros

LEMON

Cons

LEMON due to electronic malfunction that caused the car to seize

25

Jettas Are Economical If You Do Not Get A Lemon — Electronics caused engine to quit and lock down due to a security feature Great on gas if the engine was properly built Cargo space was ample... backseat leg room limited Peep in her step for being a 2.0 but overall Lemon

Great Car — this car is great.Rides very comfy. The only thing that is a dislike is the vibration as you engage and disengage the clutch. I have just installed a set of michelin x ice snow tires!!!! this car is really quite fun to drive and handles very good. The coolest thing is when you turn your lights on at night the display is great!!!!

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.

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.

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
