Good Car For The Price, Don't Know Why It Isn't Higher. —

performance: lazy... breaks well and has a good top speed. so far i'm guessing around 210kph, but i havn't got it past 200. all i know is that it was still accelerating. 0-100kph, (0-62mph) is under 12 seconds. thats not good for all you not car people. build: my car was built tough. some of the interior parts are a bit fiddley, but most of the car is metal and its holding together great at almost 350,000kms. although i hear bad things about the automatic gearbox cars. apparently they were made at a different plant. appearence: google it. sucks, but at least its not ugly. just not good either. cost: dosn't use much gas when driven properly. which i don't, lol. and most of the parts i've put into it were optional. so someone who just needed an A-B car wouldn't had to have spent anything. fun: its fun on the right kind of road. it handles really well, like a BMW or Audi. it just dosn't push you back into your seat, but damn its fun to take corners fast. although i have to say i have to go double the speed around most corners to have fun, compared to my 87 corolla. (that was a peice)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: it was cheap and a VW with all the trimings.

Cons: nothing to avoid if you want a nice VW. just don't buy an auto.

My Favorite Ride — My favoritest car i ever owned room tightly build aside from the poorly built distributor almost like a starter bmw same basic layout in the interior sporty my favorite thing that was i could go around corners that i would normally go 40km i could hit 90kms without having the tires squeel and as apart from the poorly designed over drive and losing a gear the car would still go 185km/hr after spending 12000 rebuilding the engine transmission breaks and adding a few more hp is a fun ride and i wish that i never parted with it but what is done is done now and would love to own one again

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: reliable great on fuel and still sporty and good for family

Cons: transmission recall, poorly ran wires inside distrubutor which once torn apart are unrepairable

What A Pos — I am a Volkswagen enthusiast and mechanic and have had over 30 VW's and or Porsche's. This by far was the worst. I loved 16V engines until I actually owned one. It burned more oil than gas, smoked like the TDI passat, and it was just a bear to work on. The interior was somewhat comfy with the leather seats, but the interior trim was cheap and falling apart. This car was abused before I got it and it cost me a lot of money and time to get it right and when I couldnt get it right, I had to offload it and lose a bunch of cash.

Pros: Comfy leather, turning radius was not too bad

Cons: electrical nightmare, poor mileage, under powered, oil consumption

Bad On Gas, Ugly Front End, Expensive To Fix And Powerless On Hills On The Hwy — Performance- decent in town acceleration, and smooth handling, solid build but not sporty Build Quality- clean looking engine but squeaks an rattles, auto locks with key turn & power windows Appearance- no rust on a White 4door 1991 is a good thing Cost of ownership- $2500 2 years ago I am currently @ 320,000 thousand km ( Seems like the odometer was unplugged) Fun Factor - this car in AUTO is NOT fun to drive- it's a retirement cruiser or good family ride, but it's not cheap on fuel

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: -hasn't rusted and mine is white, made in Germany, smooth quit ride

Cons: $$$$    expensive to repair!!!!  - damn electrical problems  - Ugly outdated front lights  - European speaker wiring! Economy mode makes no difference on fuel consumption compared to Sport mode, car rattles like mad in idol and at high speeds

Passsssssat! — Awesome machine, 312 000 km and still going on! Driving it makes me feel STRONG! Economic, even though its old, has a lot of trunk space and is quite spacy inside as well. I will never sell it! NEVER! Really.

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

Pros: Speed :D

Cons: nothing

The Fastest Car I Know. Oh And Dont Forget The Best Handling Car On Earth! — Yes it was my first car and still my favorite. It I did all the work to it, and it turned out to have more power then you could imagine and have handling that would rival any rally car!

Pros: Fast, great handling, and a blast to drive.

Cons: the four wheel drive system was primitive and needed upgrading. But for what it was, it could not be better!

Held Up Well For The Time We Had It. — Was a good solid German engineered car, but like most European cars, you pay through the nose as soon as you enter the shop

Pros: Handling at high speeds, accelleration, design and comfortable ride

Cons: Pricey on repairs

This is a terrific all around family car. The seating is huge, it is fuel efficient, and handles well. The design is spartan and timeless. The only thing I've noticed over time is that the paint doesn... Read More
