    Cool Entry Level Car — Very compact, fast, and solidly built, a few reliability niggles, nothing that would strand you on the road, but annoying. was just getting to get attached to it when we decided we needed more space. so off it went to carmax replaced by a Mazda CX-7

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    I Would Love To Buy A New One! — I bought this car used and it has been faithful for many years. Its been a reliable friend. There are a few qwerks, and replacing the timing belt was not fun, but all in all I love this car, it's been the best i've owned so far!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: cute, reliable, fun to drive,

    Cons: it wasn't free!

    Nice Car — I liked pretty much everything about the car. I changed out the old radio to update it a bit to be able to hook up iPods too it. Also bought 4 new speakers, an amp, and a big boom box for the trunk. Got it painted black also. And tinted windows.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Easy to drive, Nice radio, small but big trunk, great on gas, good looking

    Cons: The only bad thing about it was it needed a better spot for  the cup holder.

    I Absolutely Adore It! Just Makes Me Mad Some Times! — Looking back I almost wish I would have bought a Honda. This is a very nice, clean car inside and out. But one problem turns into another and it gets very pricey to fix. Not to mention the fact that there aren't many mechanics that are certified to work on them or that know anything about them unless you go to a VW dealership, which is even more expensive! Jettas have always been my dream car, now my dreams are crushed! If I could just get everything wrong with it repaired, I'll drive it until the wheels fall off and love every second of it. But if not, I may drive it off a cliff!!!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Sweet ride!! Got a GREAT deal on it at an auction -- Very clean interior, leather interior, good paint job. And she's pretty fast : )

    Cons: Expensive to fix! Expensive to replace tires! Just expensive in general.

    Overall The Car Is Very Good But It Just Isnt Enough Space In The Backseat. — I like the fact that it didnt cost to much to fill up the tank on this car and the maintenance isnt that expensive is a plus. The only thing that i really dislike about the car is the size. It just isnt enough room in the back seat but other than that the car is good.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great on gas, maintenance not to expensive, Handling and braking is excellent.

    Cons: Not enought space in the back seat at all

    Gggggggggggreat! — I adore my darling, practical glx wagon! Unlike the other models, mine is actually made in Germany so I feel the build quality is much better. My car is so fun to drive and it carries my dogs, my horses grain bags and groceries all in one trip! I just cannot say enough about this car! I change my oil with only mobile one synthetic oil and I always use the high quality filters made by KT. When I need a new car I am hoping they will make another great wagon!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Practical, can carry a lot of passengers, dogs, feed bags, groceries etc

    Cons: I have to use premium fuel
