    Golf Gt Tdi 150bhp — Perfect car for London, good mileage when you maintain optimum revs(52mpg) but enough grunt for a diesel due to twin turbos to accelarate like a petrol. Awesome VW engineering(responsible for the veyron) shows through in the efficiency and reliability of the engine. After 4 years of services I still have all the free bottles of oil the garage give me as I have never had to top up the oil. Fun to drive at speed although after 140 mph it tends to be a bit light in the corners due to low body weight. They didn't have my model in the drop down list as my boss imported direct from Germany. Model is the exclusive twin turbo GT TDI 150BHP.

    Pros: Fun, Fast, Efficient, Economic and Good to look at.

    Cons: None other than a bit light after 140mph.

    Great Little Car — Very reliable and dependable. When I first bought it, diesel was cheaper than regular gas. Since it is a diesel, I get around 45 MPG. 136,000 miles and still going strong.

    Pros: MPG's!!

    Cons: Ride can be rough when loaded.  But it has 136,000 and still the same shocks and struts.  They should be changed

    Great Fuel Economy Vehicle — Purchased just a few weeks ago with 102K miles; well-kept and always serviced on schedule by original owner. Love the 50+ mpg fuel economy. My one complaint is that the clutch pedal travel makes me have to sit a little farther forward than is comfortable in order to engage it. Love the Monsoon system with 6-disc changer.

    Style, Not Speed — I put on 17" ASA AR1 black rims. If you plan on getting one of these.. make sure you get a 1.8T or the new 2.0T.. they're worth it.. but the 2.0 naturally asperated, isn't the way to go.. but i loved this car..

    Pros: Looks, Handling

    Cons: 2.sl0w... reliability

    It's German And Behaves Like A German, Dependable, Well Built And Dead Dead Boring — It has never broken, It's done 135000 miles and only needed brake pads... it is engineering genius

    Pros: Built like a Tank

    Cons: Looks like a Tank

    Would Be A Beast If It Was A Gt Tdi Gti Or A R32. — Built like a brick but too dam slow :-( Good job I have a quad bike and speedy thoroughbred to get my kicks from!

    Pros: Nice alloys but didnt come with car! 6 disc cd changer and interior v nice when its not leaking! Sunroof nice but prone to leaking!

    Cons: No air con, too much crappy plastic trim, no front fog lights, no power, no tinted glass, no rear speakers, girlie horn, no back seat head rests, no RCL, handles like a bag of spuds........list goes on

    Great Car, Would Recomment It To Anyone — Really great car, have helped many friends move with this car. Very versatile. Almost made it to vancouver on one tank with this car(made a few detours along the way). My favourite car that i have ever owned. This car is not for someone who is cheap. These cars are only for people who can appreciate a Volkswagen, and respect it!

    Pros: Versatility, fuel economy

    Cons: maintenance costs were a little higher than say a civic.
