    Meet Inspektor Gadget — What's not to like ? It has great features It even has a hint of lux... Plus, its really great in Chicago winters as was my Maxima. Neither has the cachet of my old Beemer, but I 've enjoyed driving both. Check it out.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Its pretty, it has a sunroof, its quick, it corners well.

    Cons: You can afford a AWD Mercedes. I can't.  But I'm happy.

    Good Family Hauler — Car is nearly 10 years old. no rust. NO major electrical problems that some fols complain about. Hauls LOTS of stuff and is a good daily car. The car is ok to drive although a bit too much under-steer. Seats are extremely comfortable for long journeys. No other car I have ever been in comes close.. not even BWM or MB. Take premium fule although mostly city driving gets 10L/100 KM which isn't too bad.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Comfortable build quality

    Cons: Understeer and premium fuel.

    Best Little Car Made — Safety. Leather seats. Heated Seats. Performance plus especially for a four cylinder. Driver friendly. Clean. Very fun to drive. low mileage and maintenance. Comfort is a plus for driver and passenger. very little repair minor needed. I love this car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: comfort

    I'd Buy Another One. — The only thing I don't like about this car is that its a leaf/snow collector. Hood/Trunk openings allow detritus to collect and filter into the Eng/Trunk compartments. Acc/braking/handling are excellent, as is build quality. Love the styling/appearance. It gets 19-20 mpg around town, 25+ on the highway. Its 8-9 yrs. old, so I expect maint. costs to rise, but its been exemplary so far. This car is a gas to drive - especially w/the sunroof open and the Monsoon Stereo blasting.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Its a great cruiser.

    Cons: It ain't a Porsche.

    You Need To Try It. — Great perferormance, handles itself, pulls loads. Good breaks, easy to use, not to sharp or too easy! Acceleration is just amazing. Unexpected power. Yeah, she's old needed first new set of spark plugs which for over 100,000 miles is amazing! No squeaks, slight rattle, but thats cause of everything we've put in her. GORGEOUS! Perfect looks, she's milky blue! We changed the original stereo for a tv, to play our iPod, but the original stereo was goood. Very well put together, loads of space! Needs a clean though haha. She's quite pricey but so worth it, tax is 120£ for 6 months so its abit annoying there, insurance for my 20 year old boyfriend was decent to say hes only had 1 year driving expierence! Yeah she is, she's got her own personality, she's just fun, gorgeous car. Whether you wanna cruise or put your foot down.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Just completely amazing

    Cons: I can't think of any reason not to!

    Awesome Car For Family People — i love it because it has good acceleration and speed. tight handling, stops on a dime! it has a small gas tank but it gets awesome mileage. you can drive it almost flat out and still get about 19 mpg. so fun to drive despite being a wagon.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: FAST and TIGHT TURN RADIUS

    Cons: It's a wagon

    My Passat — for a TDI Sport or goes very well. this one has all the mod cons, like climate controlled air conditioning, alloy wheels, electric windows all round, alarm and immobiliser as standard, tinted windows on the rear , automatice rain sensor, auto tinting interior mirror, to relieve headlight dazzle.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Quite and quick

    Cons: none found yet

    3d Passat And No Wonder! By nedm
