Love The Baby Jetts!! — Great car! Be sure to get a good warranty....I broke a couple things that probably would have cost me a lot of money to fix but the platinum warranty I got covers almost everything!!!

Pros

It is a solid, comfortable, fun, fuel efficient car.

Cons

the 2.5L engine has 150HP on 5 cylinders. I wish it were a little bit more ballsy

25

It Is Sure Fun To Drive! — I enjoy the amount of features that this car boasts for its driver. The Transmission is solid and has six speeds for great top end performance. Its top speed is 130MPH, beat that America with your electronic 100mph limit Well priced for those of us YUPPIES who want a nice car but not a big price tag.

Pros

Nice looking, not much needed to make it look good, and good torque

Cons

Some interior rattling, but fixable free through dealer and i wish i had the GLI turbo version, and it gets 25 mpg

35

Good Reliable Car With Good Amount Of Torque And Horsepower (wish I Had The Turbo Version Though) — Great car, it is reliable and has more features than a $50,000 car. Great ride and great amount of torque. Has about 150 horse power stock, with leather seats, 6 disk cd changer and many other options. Great car lot of passenger space and a great modding car. Dont need to do much to make it look good.

Pros

Quick 2.0l Turboed motor delivers around 230hp (not stock) but can cruise at 80mph @ 35mpg. Huge trunk. Four doors. Cheap insurance.

Cons

VW is very proud of their parts and charges too much for them.

35

The Only Woman Who Hasn't Done Me Wrong. — This is the first new car I ever bought. I cut my teeth on '76 and '67 Beetles, so you could say its in my blood. This car is a well rounded beast that takes car of my every need. Roomy, quick, and economic. What's not to love? Check us out at avdubs.org

Fuel milage and apperance

Great On Fuel But Needs A Bit More Power! — Overall this is a excellent car that I am proud to drive, its great on fuel as well. My TDI is equipped with the executive leather package so I am impressed with the interior as it is too a audi type level. Good handling around corners but slow at take off. Transmission is wonderfully smooth as well just a good fun car to drive.

Barely Filled It Up — Sold it because im waiting for the one with bigger horsepower, slow acceleration, but overall the car was mint.. sold it for more then i paid was a great first car, wished i never sold it to tell you the truth.. no problems ever occurred except for a wheel bearing which had to be replaced due to the rims, nothing more
