Love It. — Press the gas in gear, it goes. Hit the brakes and it stops thanks to drilled Brembo discs. Turn the wheel, and it turns. Tune up last April and now overdue, but has good torque and pulls smothly to at least 115mph. Body has typical dings and dents, nothing serious. Fully owned, easily goes 330 to 350 miles on a full tank. The car has a lively spirit, fun.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun

Cons: Paint color?

Pretty Ok — A half fun car which is economic to drive and so on. It lacks horsepower and doesn't accelerate very good. The car is not only cheap to drive but it is also very cheap to own because it's a small car!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Poor performance

Nice, Reliable And Slow — 2.slow liters of pure unadulterated dogging. The GTI type interior only rubs salt in the wound. The 5 speed is nice although my clutch is on the way out and I suck with a stick. Reverse gear has a reputation on ABAs and it does meet up to it's reputation by regularly making you think you just wrecked your tranny.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Pretty reliable, nice interior package, great on gas and fun.

Cons: Slow, OEM ride-hight is along the lines of an F-250 and aging ate most of my cooling system.

Vw Golf — Ok, so this is my first car, I've had it for a year, and it was 10 years old when i got it, but its never caused me any problems. My views on each bit of the car: Performance- need to really put your foot down otherwise it really won't move. Never keen on over using the brakes, tend to go for engine braking, but did very well in the snow. Build Quality- well other than bits i've tinkered with (exhaust which always falls off) its all fine. Does tend to vibrate alot at 70mph though. Cost - pretty average, obv a new car wld b cheaper except when it came to insurance

Pros: Hasn't ever broken down

Cons: slow
