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

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.

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

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

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

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!
