    Fun Everyday Car — Highly recommend to upgrade ECU and exhaust...mine Has Revo Stage 2 upgrades, fender mount cold air, 4 Bar fuel pressure regulator, Stratesphere Diverter valve, Eurospeed 2' downpipe and Magna Flow exhaust. It puts HP up to around 245 at 16-18lbs of boost...a lot of power for a 4cylinder. Prior to upgrades I had a lot of ECU problems, now just the typical coil pack blowing now and then. Plus I get 28-30mpg

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Turbo

    Cons: parts are expensive

    I Absolutley Love It — the VR6 is a beastly 6 cyl motor and i love it. it has the most beautiful undertone and a snotty mean heart throne. my car is awsome. its pretty stock except for a neuspeed perf. chip, remus axle back exhaust, ported swiss intake box, and a badgeless grill.

    Pros: it burns 2nd and chirps 3rd

    Cons: its exspensive to maintain

    Vw Jetta 2001 — The best car ever!! Will never buy a North American car as long as I can afford it...Gas can be a bit pricey when I put the pedal to the metal but it is worth it because she goes!!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great handling, tight turning radius, fast ride, sturdy/safe

    Cons: Expensive repairs

    Really Fun Car To Drive...not So Fun On The Wallet — Bought JT second hand from the original owner in Chicago. Love driving JT but drawbacks include mass airflow issues, lots of maintenance and engine light is always on even right after I resolve the error codes. :( Two words: Extended Warranty!! :)

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: CUTE and FUN car to drive. Not bad on gas mileage but lots of engine issues

    Cons: Maintenance costs are $$$

    German Enigneered. — My favorite car, VW should have refined the mechanical build though. A great german-engineered car with lots of problems though. The innovation at the time was great, as VW introduced the 20v 1.8T. However I experienced many mechanical problems, mostly with the automatic 01m transmission (notorious for railure), and electrical. Had to replace tranny twice within a year. I loved the community surrounding the mods of vw's though, and the mk4 had endless tuning options. Car was overall a sleek simple looking one too. Interior is simple enough to be elegant. Handling was okay, pretty normal for an econobox.

    Pros: German Engineered, Quality of materials and design, 1.8T, Modifications, Culture

    Cons: Mechanical failure, so-so mileage, expensive repairs
