Our Relationship Was Cut Short — I loved my little car! It had just enough power to play around, but not enough to get me in trouble. Looks like someone else liked my car just as much since they decided to help themselves to it!

Pros: Power. Leather. Massage table fit in the trunk (along with room for a couple people). Fun to drive.

Cons: It's in bits and pieces now.

My Lil Jetta Iii Gl — 5spd 4cyl - 8speaker w/sunroof. This was my Jetta of choice, optioned exactly how I wanted it. I have 224k miles on it.

Pros: Hows 32 mpg average sound?  The 8 speaker factory stereo sounds great too - I have an integrated ipod adapter that takes place of the cd changer.

Cons: I burned out the check engine light.

Phizer Mobile — It's a mini go-kart and it goes like stink. :) What isn't great is the various problems it's starting to have. I have 130k+ miles on it, so things are starting to fail. Just didn't expect the bits that hold the windows in place to fail, allowing the windows to slowly sink into the doors.

Awesome Car Should Have Never Sold It.....::wipes Away A Tear:: — the vr6 provided plenty of power, and it handled like a dream. it had every power option except heated seats. it was black with black leather seats, a very sharp looking car. the only problem was when it blew a head gasket (the old vr6 enginges are known for that). it was a real pain to fix because of the lack of room. later i found out that it's only a hand full of bolts to take the whole front end off.(oh well)

Pros: everything!! one of my favorite cars that i've ever owned.

Cons: a little too much torque steer on hard acceleration, weak head gasket, and the 5 disk cd changer was junk

The Best Jetta — Besides the fact that you never forget your first car (or was about girlfried?)... anyway, this is the best Jetta ever made, great performance, has owned for 135,000 Km and has never had a single failure and compared with the A4 versions, this one has a great space in the cabin and an awesome trunk space.

Pros: Cabin space, performance, you can trust it reliability for thousands of miles

Cons: Age

Good Looking & Expensive To Fix — I purchased this car from a Buy Here Pay Here and it seemingly ran fine. Everything in it worked properly and the motor ran like a dream. However everything electronic in it seemed to zap out. Once out it was way too complicated to fix & parts/labor was ridiculous. Although it was fast and I could rely on it motor wise...the offtrack window falling down in 20 degree weather was miserable.

Pros: fast, reliable motor, good looking

Cons: horrible electronics, expensive fix, awkward trunk

Bought It For One Hundred Dollars — the one i have dosent have reverse, and the driver window dosent roll up but a very dependable car, when i bought it, it had a whole bunch of MSD Ignition stuff all over the engine compartment, not letting it run right so i took it all off and overhauled the engine and now it runs like a champ

Pros: runs good

Cons: its a ricer
