Appearance isn't great but i do need a paintjob and other exterior things. interior is great! only about $30 to fill up and i can for for two weeks! all around a blast to drive! I recommend it to everyone!

I Wouldn't Buy It From Me If I Were You. — This car sucked, but it was a great first car. It had lots of engine problems which was good for me because it taught me how to replace things like wind shield wiper motors and air conditioning units. It handled like a sick horse which made weaving through traffic incredible. The only thing I truley miss though is the perfectly worn leather steering wheel.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: If you crashed it into a wall you might survive to laugh about it.

Cons: It had black leather interior and no air conditioning.

The Ideal Student Car. — Classic Volkswagen everything. It has typical performance for a 90hp diesel. Build quality is very good (German Engineering). As far as appearance goes I'm a huge fan of German styling and the cost to maintain it is minimal. Is it fun to drive? It is a Volkswagen so... heck yes! German cars always handle better! I love it! I would definitely recommend this vehicle.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very reliable, very good on gas, decently equipped for price.

Cons: Not super fast.

Well, I Did Buy It And Im Driving It Am I? — Handling is really nice with the suspension, it makes you feel like youre going 80 when your actually going 140. fairly cheap on gas, about 40$ a week depending on how much you drive. The engine is pretty well bullet proof. Dont purchase an older automatic, they tend to crap out somewhere between 230k and 300k, but if it laster past that, than its probably good to last you another 400k. they look nice if you keep it clean and maintained. Its a very fun car to drive, easy to handle and control, and fun to zip around corners. But take care of it! they are expensive to upkeep.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its fun to zip around in.

Cons: Electrical, electrical, electrical.

It's A Vw — It is slow, handles/brakes fine. Extreme BSR issues, interior sucks, looks cool, gets about 29mpg no matter what. It is fun to drive, but what stick isnt? Repairs are not as costly as one might think, that is all.

Pros: It's a VW

Pros: prius killer. the mileage is outstanding

Cons: plastic

99 Vw Jetta Gls - Good Car Minus A Few Annoyances — Acceleration wasn't the best, often needed a lot of power to switch gears. Brakes were always kinda squeaky even after getting them replaced. Exterior paint was chipping in a couple spots. Interior paint on door handles was wearing off. Glovebox door was broken and center console cover broke. Factory alarm would activate 30 seconds after unlocking the car even if I was in it, unless I turned the car on or opened a passenger side door. Had to replace one of the power window motors. Hood latch broke and also had to be replaced. Mileage was pretty good but probably not what you'd expect from a Jetta. Otherwise it ran good, didn't need much done under the hood. Power moon/sunroof worked great and speakers sounded amazing. Black/tan interior, chrome shift panel and blue/red dashboard lights were awesome.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Lots of great interior features, good mileage and handling, few mechanical problems

Cons: Poor construction on some non-mechanical parts, acceleration issues

Vw Jetta: The Love/hate Story —

This was the first car that I have ever owned, bought for me by my parents. I knew then I wanted something that looked bold, stylish, and crafted with a touch of German. Not throwing out the idea of owing a Civic, but every kid my age had one. Little did I know, I ended up in the land of Vdub. What came along with owning a VW, was the sub- culture that came behind it. Through shockers, and love amongst Dubbers; it seemed almost as a cult. However, a cult with tastefully modded vehicles, unlike their counter part japanese street tuners. Stretch tires and RWD fitments on a FWD car with huge spacers became a fashionable thing to do amongst dubbers, completely senseless, but cool. At the time, these where in the discussion boards and a power struggle between VW and Honda fanboys were hitting the drag strips. I enjoyed the quarrels, and participated in many discussions. It became my passion, my pass time, my studies... From then I grew with real knowledge from mechanics and physics. What I had gained from this car, was once a great time in my life. From knowledge, wisdom, the right mods, the wrong mods, friends, and stories. This car was the love of my life! It was a Love/Hate story. Had I have know at the time of purchase I would have gone with a 1.8T 5- speed gear shifter, instead with no knowledge I opted for a 2.0L grand-ma/sissi boy gear changer aka automatic transmission. Performance wise, it was very weak. It was never built for performance actually . Yet it felt nice as it revved to 3k RPM before shifting gears. Higher gear ratio's made it very "torquey"! Suspension was solid and kept the car on the road very well. Compared to those japanese vehicles, it was smooth and not as bouncy. It felt solid, it felt German. Built quality seemed impeccable, especially the interior was very comfortable and un-boring as if nothing seemed cheap. Even though it really was! Broken glove box, plastic molding from the dash kept breaking off, and the lighting from the heater dial would never light up when you want it to and the heater never seem to kick in just right. Windows either fog up after awhile, then you would have to trickle with the dials to get it back on, it was a constant adjustment. Finally, you would always have a burnt stop light bulb or a burnt headlight that was nearly impossible to change behind the battery. To top things of the 2.0L burns oil faster than a Buggati Veyron hitting top speed with a full tank of gas! On a final note, it had a very poorly design by having its engine sit so low as for the oil pan to knock every bump on the road. I had gone through 4 oil pans within it's life span. In the end, I loved it! It was beautiful, was comfortable, and was fun to drive. Those were just minor details that some will cry over, but not I; a person who just absolutely enjoys driving. Whether it just be around the city that I've grown to love & call home.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great fun. Looks amazing inside and out.

Cons: Poorly design engine sitting too low to the ground. Not enough power with the 2.slow.
