Street-legal Rally Car. — Nothing to dislike. Interior is typical VW quality. It's just fun to drive! Great acceleration! Takes some getting used to the turbo kick. Handles very well. Corners like it's on rails. Shifting is smooth and allows power to flow without hesitation. Plenty of cargo space, especially when rear seats are folded down.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Acceleration, handling, smooth gear shifts, cargo space, mileage (28 city/31 hwy)

Cons: Back seats can hold adults but not for long rides.

'02 Gti 1.8t Boost 17psi — bad sterring response, need better suspension, tires and alignement, everything else is hot! powerful when chipped, hard metal, good places for the speakers. dealer parts are not so expensive, fun to drive, no rattle, little road noise. great option not on base model.

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

Pros: look great, power and tons of parts to tuned

Cons: steering response

Golf Gti 25th Anniversary, Need I Say More — Excellent performance with 197BHP remap and 50+mpg. Good Build quality as you would expect from a VW Looks good with the standard anniversary bodykit, BBS Alloys and unique recaro interior and aluminium trim. Cheap to run with good performance and very low depreciation due to the anniversary being limited to 1800, 900 petrol and 900 diesel broken down to 300 silver, 300 black and 300 red.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Performance, Looks, limited edition, economy

Cons: none

Love It. — Snappy, torquey acceleration. Good braking, responsive handling. Has needed repair from time to time, to be expected with VW with high miles. Interior/exterior style is perfect for me. I love how it looks from every angle. Cost of ownership is not bad at all. Gas mileage is good if you drive nicely, still not horrible when driven aggressively. Repairs can add up. Very, very fun car to drive. handles winding country roads like no other.

Pros: Performance, fun, cost of ownership.

Cons: Typical volkswagen surprises.

Get One If The Oppotunity Is There — Extremely fun car to drive. It has easy handling and is very good on gas. Ony down side to the car is it uses premium gas due to the turbo but its worth it. These cars are very customizable and fun for all people.

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

Pros: Its a great drive

Cons: there are none

Sporty Car — Has nice acceleration with the turbo, running at stock PSI it isn't beasty fast though. Volkswagen is kind of notorious for bad headliners etc, so as long as you replace those when necessary it's a nice car. Sporty cloth two tone interior. Good gas milage if you don't abuse the turbo ( high rpm's). I like the hatchback too =)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Quick, good handling.

Cons: Expensive parts

Wouldnt Trade It For A Ferrari — i love my car, lol. the only thing i hate is the little things. for example, i cant just replace the one control arm bushing i have to replace the whole control arm. the first thing you wanna do is delete the pvc system and secondary air pump, get a decent reflash and you'll never want anything else haha.

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

Pros: i <3 VW&turbos

Cons: if you cant afford it loll
