A New Generation Of Vw — This is a much improved VW compared to earlier models. Much more refined and comfortable and the engine is a new generation of refinement (1.6 liter petrol engine). It`s technically too small for me and the family, but it became available on attractive terms.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Refinement

Cons: Size, too small

Great First Car To Own. — Performance, great handling even for a regular model Build quality, its not a BMW, very reliable tho Appearance, I love it. Cost of ownership, German Bosch injection systems set the standards, just avoid long trips. Fun factor... lots of fun

Great Car. Looks Cool And Is Fun To Drive. Turns Heads. — German engineering is awesome, yeah, but when I get another car in a year or so I'm upgrading to a BMW or Audi, or maybe even turning to a WRX STi. Performance wise, 200 stock horsepower is nothing to complain about, and the cars runs great. Shifts smooth. Build quality is ace, no needed repairs so far, but I have only had the car for a short time now, so I guess we'll see. No squeaks/rattles except for a bad ground wire SOMEWHERE for my subs. Cost of ownership doesn't break the bank. And this car is a blast to drive. It's basically 200 horsepower in a go cart. Sounds like fun, right?

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

Pros: It's fun and there are so many easy ways to customize it and make it yours. Not to mention, it's German.

Cons: Just avoid the 2.0L. If you get a VR6 there's no disappointments.

The Golf — Love it. It is practical, faster than the beetle, fits lots of stuff in it (like a Mary Poppins bag). Touch wood very reliable and 100% better than the 306 I had before. Very solid, cost £2k and very fun to drive

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fun and faster than the bug

Cons: the wheel badges keep falling off, desperately needs some new cool wheels

It Is An Alright Car, But There Are Definitely Way Better Cars Out There, I've Lost All Hope For Vw. — Too many repairs, it has caused a lot of frustration over the years, but for some reason I am still wanting to hold on to it. The car is pretty fun to drive. I enjoy having a decently small call that I'm able to zip around in, but I do wish a had more cargo space.... mind you, it is amazing how many things you can fit in a golf...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun little car to drive, good mileage.

Cons: Expensive repairs
