It's Like A Timex, Takes A Lickin' And Keeps On Tickn'! — Performance: Acceleration out of the 1.6 Diesel is not earth shattering, but it moves the little car around with ease and does what you ask of it. Handling and braking are good and predictable. Build Quality: Well as it's been 27 years since it was made, and it's still almost all original, build quality is definitely all there. Apperiance: I love it. 80's hatches will never die. Cost of ownership: Damn near nothing. 44mpg. Just oil changes and maintenance. I've put 100k on this car to it's current 240k, it's never let me down once in the last three years. Fun Factor: It's always fun, that's one of the really cool points of this car, it's got more soul then big foots shoe.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel Economy, Reliability, Unique in todays world.

Cons: If you don't like Volkswagens

I'd Get Another, Someday. — This was my favorite car ever. Ran like a champ with the rotary engine. never needed more than exhaust and an oil change. Oh, yeah, new sparkplugs. That is, until the deer ran into it and the service guys screwed it up driving it with a bad radiator.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun drive, great handling.

Cons: doesen't like whitetail.

!982 Vw Rabbit — It is a 1982 vw rabbit 5-speed stick, with less than 100,000 km on it. No rust ANYWERE and i mean it even under the car is shiny. The car has never seen wheather. Me and My dad rebuilt the engine and most of the car. It is suprisingly fast (built for the autobahn) exelent handaling. It might not look the coolest but in all it is a wicked ride.

Pros: Sweet ride

Cons: There is no negatives about it
