    Its Great Saver On The Gas Bill, Not The Electrical Bill — my only problem with this car is it always has an electrical problem, other than that its a good car. drives good and picks up when it needs. great ongas, that turbo is doing its job. 30 bucks, full tank.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: its a turbo

    Cons: it always as an electrical prblem

    Nice — This car is pretty good. Some problems with the brake sensors. Manual transmission is (Y). And this car is not as cheap as other VW cars but is cheaper than an Audi or a BMW. Comfortable and funny car. The end.

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

    Pros: Manual transmission.

    Cons: Is not cabrio.

    Plum — vw's suck Both were easy to get, cheap. They should have put the VR, instead of the stupid fat v6. She takes 6.5 quarts of oil. syn. But with the mod's she has, she drives nice, stiff. It's how she likes it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: bmp with red flake. yum

    Cons: window regulators

    I Guess I'm Not A German Car Person - Would Rather Have A Reliable Car. — Purchased used - but after an inspection appeared to be a decent car. Well, got it for a reasonable price, but then things started go wrong - spent about $3K a year at the VW deaership [a whole other issue]. And when the Timing Belt blew on the highway, leaving me stranded, that was it. BTW, had replaced the water pump 3 months prior - wouldn't a reputable dealer replace the timing belt during that procedure??

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Enjoyable to drive

    Cons: Fixing what broke

    Passats Are Lovely. — The turbo makes the first 2 gears a ton of fun. The german engineering truly shows in how well the bodies hold up. Mine is especially sexy. I love my car. I have too much fun driving it on my commute to work my average mph is around 100.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: My car turns me on.

    Cons: If you can't afford to fix it get some cheap honda.

    2000 Vw Passat 1.8 20v Turbo — Well, I got rid of this before buying the Beemer, and quite frankly, all I can say is that it's been on hell of a runner. Got to 105k on the clock, and only had one (major) bit of work on it in the time I had it - air mass meter - common VW/Audi failing - and it rocked. Good power, excellent mover, pretty decent running around town, but motorways are where this puppy live... superb over great distances, and always wanted to do them!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great runner, still strong at 105k when I sold it!

    Cons: Not the best looking, but functional

    Reliable, Simple, Yet Very Comforfortable Daily Driver. — Great gas mileage. Reliable German engineering. But, prone to O2 sensor failures. Nothing major though. Makes a good daily driver. And, it has decent acceleration for a 1.8L turbo 4 door. Also, because of the turbo, the car requires premium gas. But, with premium I get like 30-34mpg hwy.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's German

    Cons: Nazism

    Awesome — performance: gets the job done Appearance: interior stereo work is second to none exterior: black, lowered, audi A8 wheels. fun factor: the best part of the car is the stereo, making it always fun to drive, and makes up for the lack of performance

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: STEREO

    Cons: no longer unique
