    It's A Good Car With Quirks — I heard that these cars have electrical issues and my car has lived up to the reputation. It's little things here and there, but a hassle nevertheless.

    Great Vehilce Love Needed — I have grown up on VW's. I have always enjoyed there pep and thrilling driving experience. The fit and finish of this vehicle is bar none the best in it's class. Car has never left me anywhere and while very expensive to fix it doesn't need to be fixed a lot.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: excellent power and handling. Great in the snow and adverse conditions

    Cons: expensive to fix

    Vw Love — It's an extremely fun car to drive, with predictable limits. Power from the torquey VR6 is more than enough to send you flying into triple digit speeds. Speaking of the VR6, it gets surprisingly good gas mileage if treated right. I often see 10.0-11.0L/100km (21-24mpg) on my daily commute (consisting of city mileage only) to school and work. When cruising on the highway, consumption drops to a commendable 8.0L/100km (29mog). Premium fuel (91 Octane) or more IS REQUIRED! Steering feel & feedback is excellent, along with stellar brakes. Ride is firm (my GLI sport springs can be blamed for that), but it provides the best compromise between performance and comfort. The standard springs were too soft for my liking. Clutch engagement is quite high up on the pedal, but the weight of the clutch is perfect. Fit & finish is stellar both inside and out. The car is 12 years old and there is absolutely no sign of cracking, ripping, or fading on the leather upholstery. The blue and red instrument cluster lighting looks fantastic at night, and all controls are easy to reach. My Jetta also has VW's CLIMATRONIC climate control which is an excellent feature (set it and forget it!). The rain-sensing, automatic wipers also come in handy quite often. Do be sure to turn them off if entering car washes, as the wiper arms can get ripped off. The attention to detail can be seen everywhere in this car... the side view mirror will angle downwards when reverse is engaged to assist with parallel parking, the fuel pump will prime itself when the driver's door is opened before getting in. Things like this make the driving experience that much better... As I stated earlier, the gas mileage is totally dependant of how you drive the car. If treated right, the Jetta will do just fine. Keeping up to date on regular maintenance is crucial if you want your car to last. No out of the ordinary maintenance has been needed. Exterior styling is conservative, but a hint of muscularity can be seen in places like the fender flares. Jetta's tend to have a bit of a "monster truck" look to them in stock from, so I highly advise moving to the VW sports suspension, which will lower the car similarly to how mine is in the picture.

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

    Pros: EVERYTHING!

    Cons: VW's infamous electrical glitches in their Mk4 cars can become annoying. However, most fixes are cheap and simple. A lot of money can be saved if you can do the basics yourself.
